The Bomag BMF 2500 Feeder for Greater Paving Efficiency

Bomag has added a series of feeders to its paving product range. The new machines are built in industrial cooperation in Germany, and fully supported by Bomag via the usual processes in the areas of sales, application consulting, service and spare parts. The BMF 2500 feeder produces uniform and constant delivery of the mix to the asphalt paver, which reduces paving times and improves the quality of finished work.

The BMF 2500 is available in 3 models, including the BMF 2500 model that will be on display at Bauma 2016 with a medium-length fixed belt.

On asphalt work, constant material feed from the screed and uniform precompaction of material are the most important factors for high quality paving. Feeders optimize material delivery by quickly processing the incoming material from the truck and conveying it at a constant rate without contact with the paver.

Outstanding features of the new Bomag BMF 2500 feeder are its high output and compact design. Theoretical ouput is 4,000 t/h, which means the unit can handle a 27 t truckload of crushed rock, sand or asphalt in only 35 seconds. At the same time the vehicle width of only 2.55 m is narrow enough for transport without special permit. EcoMode reduces the engine speed depending on the job requirement and so saves fuel.

The conveyor belt on the Bomag BMF 2500 feeder has a width of 1.2 m and gives optimum material flow with minimal segregation. In addition, the rubber belt is mounted on metal struts. These prevent the belt from stretching with hot asphalt. Retensioning the belt is no longer necessary and material feeding becomes safer. The BMF 2500 has a large material hopper with individually controllable wings for quick discharge and slewing bumper rollers to safely dock the supply truck.

The base model BMF 2500 feeder can be supplemented with a slewable belt. The slewing belt allows lateral feeding. This way, one machine can supply 2 pavers. The offset belt can be readily mounted and removed. When not needed, the belt can be quickly removed and unnecessary wear is avoided.

Distance sensors allow the BMF 2500 to be operated fully automatically. Automatic steering using a guide wire is available as an option. The machine stays on course while the operator concentrates on the delivery truck. The seat can be swivelled out by 90° which allows clear visibility to the front and back. A second station for an operator at ground level is located on the side wall. A weather-proofed laptop docking station is also provided.

The Bomag BMF 2500 feeder is available in 3 versions. BMF 2500 S is the base model. This unit can feed all pavers and can be supplemented with a slewable offset belt. The BMF 2500 S Offset, on the other hand, offers the slewable offset conveyor belt as standard. The BMF 2500 M has a longer, height-adjustable conveyor belt. This model can feed high additional paver hoppers.
