From city areas to urban and interurban roads, the BM 2500 can handle both smaller jobs and longer road stretches. It is an agile machine with excellent load abilities.

The BM 2500 has a one-seat slidable drive and operator section for flexible working on the left or right side. Easy access and servicing of the machine through large doors to the engine room.

The thermoplastic Borum extruder can apply lines of 5 – 40 cm width depending on the set-up. The extruder may be used for the application of various types of plain and profiled lines, single and double lines of different widths, as well as for simultaneous application of continuous and interrupted lines.

THERMOPLASTIC PRESSURIZED TANK

Pressurized tank indirectly heated via thermal oil. The thermal oil and thermoplastic material temperature is thermostatically controlled and regulated automatically.

Burner system
Diesel burner system for heating of the thermal oil (and thermoplastic). Propane burner available on demand.

Vertical agitator (mixer)
With hydraulic transmission. Heated center pipe for efficient uniform temperature control. Perfect melting and homogenization of the thermoplastic. Stable construction with foundation and bearings at the top of the material tank.

Advantages when using a pressurized tank for spray:
The line thickness is affected by the machine speed, this is useful for applying thicker lines in curves and areas with higher wear and tear levels.
The maintenance for the pressure tank is minimal compared to the thermoplastic spray pump system.

THERMO SPRAY APPLICATION

Sliding retainer frame, upon which 1-3 spray guns and 1-3 bead guns can be attached. Easy slidable from side to side for an optimal working position. Ground distance is maintained by retainer wheels hereby ensuring a constant road marking width.

Lifting of retainer from operators seat is done using a hydraulic cylinder.

All material pipes are oil-jacketed and insulated to maintain an ideal material temperature.

Effective heating of the complete unit using a centrifugal pump, 42 L/min, hydraulically driven.

Line thickness is typically between 0.75 mm to 1.5 mm.

Marking speed up to 15 km/h depending on the work conditions, operator, etc.

GUN FOR SPRAY-PLASTIC APPLICATION

Automatic high-capacity spray plastic gun. Consists of an oil jacketed gun body and a pneumatic cylinder. Possibility to apply line widths ranging from 10 - 20 cm depending on line thickness, work conditions, application speed and layer thickness. As an alternative, we offer a narrow nozzle, which can spray 5-15 cm with one gun. Optional narrow nozzle size of 3 mm or wide nozzle size of 7 mm.

The guns are mounted on a sliding retainer frame, on which 1-3 spray guns and 1-3 bead guns are attached. Easily slidable from side to side for an optimal working position. Ground distance is maintained by retainer wheels to ensure a constant road marking width. All material pipes are oil-jacketed and insulated to maintain an ideal material temperature. Lifting of retainer from operators seat using a hydraulic cylinder.

Thermoplastic Spray Advantages

Due to the equipment working via a pressure vessel, it is very simple and easy to use as the pressure in the vessel is the same as the pressure in the application. Furthermore, the tank requires very little maintenance.

Thermoplastic spray markings are a cost-efficient solution as the applied lines do not require as much material as extruded profiled markings. Furthermore, this type of material forms a uniform application that is more durable and dries faster compared to cold paint applications.

EXTRUDER SET-UP

The working principle of the extruder lies in the extrusion of the hot thermoplastic material through the extruder shutters onto the road surface. This allows to switch between line types in seconds with a push of a button. No need for mechanical adjustment.

The thickness of the line is controlled by the slot gap and the speed of the machine, coupled to the thermoplastic feed rate. Glass beads can be pre-mixed and/or automatically applied with glass bead guns.You can choose between thermoplastic extruder of 30 or 40 cm in total line width, built-up with 5 cm standard shutters (alternative shutter dimensions in the range of 4-10 cm for alternative line widths).

EXTRUDER SPECIFICATIONS

Effective heating of the complete unit using a centrifugal pump, 42 L/min, hydraulically driven. This ensures optimal performance and that the material does not stiffen and set inside the equipment.

Pneumatic lifting cylinder for up/down function, operation controlled from operator’s seat.

Pneumatically controlled quick cleaning system for removal of solids left in the extrusion slot. It can be activated while extrusion is in process and is only slightly detectable on the line in the form of a moderate thickening of the layer.

The application speed varies according to the material, line type and width. Usual working speed is 3-6km/h but can go up to 8 km/h for some lines. Speed-dependent settings are possible.

AUGER SCREW PUMP WITH CONTINUOUS RECIRCULATION SYSTEM

The transport of material from tank to extruder head is done by a hydraulically driven auger screw pump, which is electronically controlled. The screw pump has a permanent thermoplastic recirculation system which ensures a constant flow past the inactive extrusion shutters, keeping these clean and ready for opening. This avoids settling and catching of solid parts and prevents unnecessary wear of mechanical parts.

Build-in pressure regulating system ensures that line width and thickness does not change no matter the number of shutters involved in the current marking assignment.

FEATURES - THERMOPLASTIC EXTRUDER:

Thermoplastic is a durable material that cures quickly and adheres strongly to the road surface. It can be used for applications of both flat lines (also known as type 1 lines) or of thick profiled lines and markings (also known as type 2 lines).

This type of material is used on various types of roads, but you will often see it on highways or motorways as it can withstand high traffic density, it has a high visibility at night and during wet conditions and glass beads can be mixed in for enhancing visibility.

LineMaster features

The Borum LineMaster control unit is an easy way of setting and controlling your line marking jobs. The LineMaster is attached to the operator's section of the machine and gives you full control of all your line marking tasks, from line application and pre-marking to reporting and invoicing.

It is possible to store up to 99 different line types, and to arrange these in up to 30 different marking programs. You are also able to pre-set line widths, line types and different combinations to have them ready for marking, and can instantly adjust them on the go.

Furthermore, you are able to view the status of various parts of the machine (e.g. compressor) on the computer screen that will help with correctly maintaining the machine and avoiding break downs.

QUICK CLEANING

Pneumatically controlled quick cleaning system for removal of solids left in the extrusion slot. It can be activated while extrusion is in process and is only slightly detectable on the line in the form of a moderate thickening of layer.
