Lasselsberger GmbH, Krems, Austria

Combined heating and cooling solution

The company Lasselsberger was the first Austrian customer of Polarmatic. In the year 1999, the company decided to invest in a new Turbomatic™ heating system for the efficient production of ready-mix concrete in cold climate on the Austrian market. 

The Turbomatic thermal energy unit is a total heating solution for batching plants: heating of aggregates and generation of warm dosing water; also capable of handling all other batching plant heating and warm wash water needs.

Last year a new mile stone was reached together. Lasselsberger made a decision to erect a new concrete batching plant, which fulfils the newest technology standards in Krems (Lower Austria). The product Variomix® of SBM Mineral Processing GmbH was the company’s choice with a maximum
output of 130 m3 [170 yd3] hardened concrete per hour equipped with all features like fiber- and color dosing etc.

Due to the ever hotter getting summer months, it was inevitable for Lasselsberger that the new batching plant does not only have to be equipped with a heating system but also with a cooling system. Polarmatic, together with SBM Mineral Processing GmbH and Linde, worked out a concept for a combined heating and cooling system followed by project engineering and execution. As a heating system serves the proven Turbomatic heating system, which was extended with a nitrogen cooling system for dosing water and aggregates. The complete system is built into a 40-foot container and the same piping systems are used for heating and cooling.

With this new combined heating and cooling solution, Polarmatic shows that it is capable of responding to customer needs and new challenges flexibly and with commitment.
