THERMOPLASTIC EXTRUSION AND RIBLINE 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 material tank capacity can be up to 710L. The possibility for the large material capacity naturally gives fewer stops during the day for refilling.
The thermoplastic Borum extruder can apply lines of 5 – 50 cm width depending on the set-up. The extruder may be used for the application of various types of plain and profiled lines.
The Rib line equipment comes with fixed line widths up to 30 cm.
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.
The RibLine equipment is mounted directly on the side of the material tank. Alternatively, if the machine is also equipped with a thermoplastic extruder, you can mount it on the side of the extruder.
The equipment is supplied by an automatic filling system with a pneumatic level center.
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.
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.
