THERMOPLASTIC EXTRUSION AND COLD PAINT APPLICATION
The Borum® Master 5000 series provides you with a variety of high capacity line marking machines designed for large scale jobs such as marking highways, motorways or airport runways.
The BM 5000 T C is a combination machine that can be used for applying both thermoplastic and cold paint markings in various widths.
The paint material tank capacity is 440 L and the plastic material tank is 585 L. The possibility of the large material capacity naturally gives fewer stops during the day for refilling.
The BM 5000 has a two-seat slidable drive and operator section for flexible working on left or right side.
Line types that can be applied with this equipment
Non-pressurized thermoplastic tank indirectly heated via heat transfer oil. The thermal oil and thermoplastic material temperature is thermostatically controlled and regulated automatically.
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 & homogenization of the thermoplastic. Stable construction with foundation and bearings at the top of the material tank.
Pressurised material tank and filters in stainless steel for water and ammonium based paints.
Dual stroke high pressure airless pump.
Capacity: Up to 24 litres/min (53 lb wt./min)
Max pressure: 270 bar (3915 psi).
Reduced valve strokes for optimal handling of paint pressurised material tank and filters in stainless steel for water and ammonium based paints.
The working principle of the extruder lies in the extrusion of the ready hot thermoplastic material through the extruder valves onto the road surface. Glass beads can be automatically applied. The thickness of the line is controlled by the slot gap and the speed of the machine, coupled to the thermoplastic feed rate.
Thermoplastic extruder set-up ranging from 30-50 cm total line width, built-up with 5 cm standard valves (alternative valve dimensions in the range of 4-10 cm for alternative line widths).
Hot-oil heated equipment for optimal performance.
Effective heating of the complete unit using a centrifugal pump, 42 L/min, hydraulically driven.
Pneumatic lifting cylinder for up/down function, operation controlled from operator’s seat.
The shutters do not touch the high tensile steel drum and therefore the lifetime is long.
Pneumatically controlled quick cleaning function for the removal of solids left in the extrusion slots can be activated while extrusion is in process.
Continuous circulation of the thermoplastic inside the equipment. This avoids settling and catching of solid parts and prevents unecessary wear of
The application speed goes up to 8-10 km/h. Speed-dependent settings possible.
The transport of material from tank to extruder head is done by a hydraulically driven screw pump, which is electronically controlled. The screw pump has a permanent thermoplastic recirculation system which ensures a constant flow past the in-active extrusion valves, keeping these clean and ready for opening.
Build-in pressure regulating system ensures that line width and thickness does not change no matter the number of the shutters involved in the current marking assignment.
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 o material is used on various types of roads, but you will often see it on highways or motorways as it can outstand high traffic density, it has a high visibility at night and during wet conditions and glass beads can be mixed in for further enhancing visibility.
For all Borum spray machines, the equipment is mounted on a sliding retainer frame as standard that allows you to quickly slide the equipment from one side to another. You can have 1-3 paint guns and 1-3 bead guns are attached.
Ground distance is maintained by retainer wheel to ensure a constant road marking width.
Lifting of retainer is done from operators seat. Pneumatic cylinder, foundation and pneumatic solenoid valve.
Paint filter with cut-off valve for easy maintenance.
Can be equipped with multiple material tanks, so that multi-color marking can be carried out simultaneously.
Working speed can be up to 15 km/h depending on the conditions, e.g. material, line type and operator experience
High-performance spray gun. 6 mm nozzle set for water based, solvent based and high solid paints. The BM C 6 gun can work with paint marking pressure up to approx. 8 bar.
An air capacity of 300-700 L/min. is needed per gun.
Possibility to apply lines in widths from 8 to 20 cm with one gun depending on work conditions, application speed, and layer thickness. Line thickness is typically between 0.25 mm to 0.80 mm
Cold paint material is a cost effective solution for executing flat markings over all types of pavements and for use in repairments. The Borum cold paint application equipment can accommodate any type of line marking job as it can be set to execute lines in widths of 8-100 cm. Furthermore, depending on the choice of material tanks, it is possible to apply lines in different colours in the same time.
10L pressure solvent tank for cleaning of hoses and paint guns.
The Borum LineMaster allows you efficient control of all 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, colours and combinations to have them ready for marking, and can instantly adjust them on the go.
Pneumatically controlled quick cleaning system for removal of solids left in the extrusion slot. 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.
