Figure 13. Screed Electric Heat Box.
Do not touch the screed wear plate when the screed electric heat box is on. Contact with the
screed wear plate when screed electric heat box is on can cause burns and scalding. Paving
material and screed wear plate temperatures can exceed 400°F (204°C). When screed electric
heat box is on and/or working with material, the BMPM has hot metal surfaces that can burn flesh
on contact. Failure to comply may cause injury or death to personnel.
The screed s electric heat box is used to raise the temperature of the screed to approximately
300°F (149°C). This will help to ensure smooth texture of the material.
