Industry solution provider TICAB has launched a new crack-sealing machine, the BPM-500, for filling and sealing the cracks that develop in highway surfaces, parking lots, on bridges, and on the tarmacs of airfields.

Supported by a frame, the sealing machine is designed to be installed on a truck or trailer. Powered by a diesel engine, its 500 litre (130gal) capacity tank is filled through the machine’s upper hatch using an electrically heated hose.

Once loaded into the tank, the bitumen-elastomeric sealing compounds are mixed with horizontal paddles and heated by thermal oil to a maximum temperature of 200°C (390°F) before being used to fill and seal the cracks using a pump with hydraulic drive. For optimal results, an optional hot air lance is available to clean and heat the cracks before they are filled.
