IMS B Belt Spreader

The belt guarantees a safe conveying of the agents at any fillinglevel. The particular execution of the dosing slider prevents blockage, ensures a long lifecycle and is maintenance-free. He’s automatically switched on when changing salt/grit or emptying on stands. The IMS B manages the spreading of pre-wetted salt as well.

The advantages of the belt spreader

The Boschung IMS range of spreaders are the direct result of our continuous development in the field of spreading technology. Intensive research in cooperation with our customers has led to practical solutions.

Our details make the difference

  • Low center of gravity
  • Choice of hopper capacities with different hopper lengths for a better weight distribution
  • Belt extension for a perfect fit of the center of gravity on the carrier vehicle is possible.
  • Short unloading times
  • Use of well proven components for economical spreading with precise and consistent spread rates
  • Professional equipment from the well-proven modular system
  • Adjustable metering gate for various spreading materials


  • Metering gate which automatically opens to clear lumps in the spreading material and then closes again for normal operation
    No risk of blocking
    Float position of the linear drive
    Long lifespan
    No wear and tear
  • Frequency-controlled belt-system

Optiwet® Distributor

The spinner disc for perfect spreading results:

  • for salt and grit
    pre-wetted salt FS30 with ASN®
    pre-wetted salt FS adaptive
    with ASBS® and GSN®
  • for FAWS-Navigation

Conveyor belt system

  • Conveyor belt with multi-layered fabric reinforcement
  • Sealing rubber skirt fitted above sides of belt to prevent spillage of salt
  • Apex load relief plate to protect the belt
  • Profiled conveyor belt guarantees a continuous and precise flow

Belt drive

  • Transmission gearing for optimized speed range of the drive motor
  • Synchronized running of the conveyor belt starting from 0.2 rpm, gives a perfectly uniform spread rate
  • Maintenance free transmission which is sealed for life
  • Drive with hexagonal Inox shaft
  • Tool-free opening of the maintenance inspection flap

Switch cabinet

  • Switch cabinet separated into hydraulic and electric compartment
  • Hydraulic components in block construction
  • Integrated pressure relief valve, 250 bar
  • Hydraulic pressure filter for additional system protection as an option
  • Special Zn/Ni coating of the hydraulic hoses and screw connections for excellent corrosion protection
  • Fast-switching proportional valves with emergency manual override for each control circuit


  • Electronic components are licensed and certified according to “regulation 2009/19/CE“ and regulation No. 10 of United Nations Economic Commission for Europe(ECE-R10) respectively!
  • Further sealed and protected in electro cabinet
  • Microprocessor control
  • Torque speed feedback of all drives with target/actual value comparison and automatic rpm regulation
  • Remote control by Vpad in the cab

Pre-wetted salt system

  • Efficient spreading by use of pre-wetted salt
  • Large brine tanks
  • Maintenance free brine pump with closed circuit
  • Automatic regulation of dry materials for extremely precise metering

Possible drives

The hydraulic supply of the IMS B series spreaders can be realized as follows:

  • Vehicle hydraulic “H”(with various clutch designs)
  • Plugged PTO pump “A”
  • Independent engine “D”
  • 5th wheel drive “W”
  • Drive S
Drive A
Drive D
Drive H
Drive S

IMS B with Vpad-technology


For IMS B spreaders the Vpad is the perfect control unit. Its intuitive handling with an ergonomic design and voice message feedback of the settings significantly simplifies the use for the operator. Equipped with state of the art processor technology the Vpad enables a perfect setting of the spreader and assumes all the communication in the Surface Condition Management.

Full Automated Weatherdependent Spreading

All data from measuring-points, weather-services, early-ice-warning-systems etc. are collected with the BORRMA-web and transmitted to the Vpad in the cab. While the operator is guided by the navigation system, the adjustment of the spreader is done by weather-dependent automation. Thereby the surface temperature is measured with the ThermoMAT and compared with the default value of the BORRMA-web. This unique system enables safe driving at any time and furthermore frees the operator in the operation-management. Operationcontrols by real-time data-transfer to the headquarter are still possible.
