THERMOPLASTIC SCREED BOX WITH RIB FUNCTION

The screed box can apply flat lines, long flex, and ribs over a line on line in one pass. The Borum thermoplastic screed box is available in the following widths: 10, 12, 15, 20 cm.

With this type of screed application, the box is dragged with constant contact to the surface. The contact points determine the line width. The material pressure is by gravity only and this is how the material is poured in the marking box. The material coming out of the box will fill up any holes, pores, or other types of road imperfections. This means that material consumption will depend on the road surface.

The screed box equipment is mounted directly on the side of the chassis.

The equipment is constructed with one main application box. If you do not need to switch the line widths often, you have the option to only change the application
opening based on your width requirements instead of the whole box! This makes the application equipment more cost-efficient!

The Borum thermoplastic screed box is available in the following widths: 10, 12, 15, 20 cm. Other sizes available upon request.

The thickness for application of flat lines is usually between 2 - 4 mm.

RIB LINE FUNCTION
The screed box is also equipped with a rib function. This allows you to apply ribs over a line in one pass. The total height of line with rib is usually between 8 to 15 mm depending on the material. The lines are recommended to be as thin as possible when combined with ribs (approx. 1,5 - 2 mm).

The usual application speed for applying
ribs over a flat line is 1-3 km/h, while for
screed application of flat lines it is up to 5
km/h.

LASER SENSOR FOR MEASURING AND REFILLING MATERIAL

The equipment is also supplied with a laser that constantly measures the material level in the application box. If the material level becomes lower than 50%, the application box will be automatically refilled.

THERMOPLASTIC MATERIAL ADVANTAGES

Thermoplastic material has a long-life duration with high retro-reflectivity capabilities due to being able to pre-mix glass beads in the material. Thermoplastic markings cure quickly and adhere strongly to the road surface. Generally, thermoplastic is recommended for areas with high traffic density and/or areas with low lighting as e.g. highways.

The rib line equipment is a cost-efficient marking equipment with reduced investments cost for thermoplastic application. This is a good solution if you are only going to work with flat markings and rib line application.

An alternative to the rib line equipment is the Borum thermoplastic extruder with which you can apply various flat and profiled markings. The extruder also uses a different application method by extruding an even layer of material on the road surface. Therefore, if the surface is rough or uneven, the line is the same as it follows the imperfections. In other words, the material consumption will be predictable according to the adjustments and will not be as influenced by the type and condition of the road surface.

EXTRUDER SET-UP

The working principle of the extruder lies in the extrusion of the hot thermoplastic material through the extruder valves onto the road surface. This allows to switch in between line types in seconds with a push of the 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, 40, or 50 cm in total line width, built-up with 5 cm standard valves (alternative valve 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.

The shutters do not touch the high tensile steel drum and therefore, this can lead to an increased lifetime.

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

Pneumatically controlled quick cleaning function for the removal of solids left in the extrusion slots can be activated while extrusion is in process.

The application speed goes up to 8-10 km/h. Speed-dependent settings possible.

SCREW PUMP WITH CONTINUOUS RECIRCULATION SYSTEM

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. 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 the 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 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.

THERMO SPRAY APPLICATION (PUMP)

The thermoplastic spray application equipment works via a pump. The amount of the applied material is set by the pressure of the pump and the air pressure of spraying, but the pump can also be adjusted to the speed of the machine.

SPRAY-PLASTIC PUMP

Spray-plastic pump operates with a non-pressurised material tank. The pump consists of a hydraulically driven motor, gearbox, clutch, highly durable rotors and pump house. Pump housing is oil-jacketed and isolated. Capacity up to 80 L/min. at 8.5 bar (176 lb wt./min. at 123 psi).

The hydraulic control valve adjusts the quantity of spray-plastic material according to the speed of the machine in order to obtain a constant layer thickness.

Hydraulic transmission with motor, shaft, safety valve and on/off valve.

BM SP 3000 SPRAY-PLASTIC GUN

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.

Sliding retainer

Sliding retainer frame, on which 1-3 spray guns and 1-3 bead guns are attached. Easily slideable 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.

The application speed can go up to 15 km/h.

Advantages of using a pump equipment

The spray plastic application equipment that works with a pump gives you the possibility of quickly adjusting the pressure while driving. Our LineMaster may also to a certain extent do this automatically.

Furthermore, filling and thermoplastic filtration is easy, since the tank lid is larger than the one on the pressurized tank.

Sprayed thermoplastic forms a uniform application that is more durable and dries faster compared to cold paint applications.

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, colours and 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.
