Complete System Overview
BEER PROPERTIES
General Information
The object of every establishment serving draught
beer is to deliver the same high quality of beer to the
customer that is delivered to it by the beer distributor.
Unfortunately, this objective may be more difficult to
achieve than the vendor or proprietor realizes,
especially if he is not thoroughly familiar with the
relationships that exist between temperature,
pressure, and beer delivery systems, all of which have
a major effect on the quality of the beer delivered to
the customer. A brief discussion of these factors may
prove helpful in understanding why a problem exists
and what corrective action is required.
Beer is a unique liquid; no two barrels (even of the
same brand) are exactly alike. There are large
variations between brands. Chemically speaking, beer
is a “supersaturated” liquid. Simply stated, beer
contains excess carbon dioxide (CO2) which
dissipates or “out gasses” if allowed to stand in an
open container for a period of time. If this were to
happen, the beer would go “flat”. The presence of CO2
gives beer its effervescent quality and distinct flavor.
There are several factors that affect the level of
carbonation, and therefore the quality and flavor of the
beer that is delivered to the customer.
Pressure
Beer is pressurized in the keg by the brewer to his
exact specifications, which are optimized for the best
possible flavor. For example, under pressurized beer
will taste flat and over pressurized beer will taste bitter.
It therefore follows that the vendor must carefully
balance his system to the beer specifications of the
brewer in order to dispense the beer with the best
possible flavor to his customers. Failure to do so can
result in poor tasting or foamy beer. This is why it is
strongly recommended that each keg or beer supply
be regulated by its own pressure regulator.
The optimum pressure for most domestic beer,
dispensed at normal temperatures and at sea level, is
12 to 14 pounds per square inch (psi) keg pressure.
12
Part Number STH13 9/10
STH13_Tech.book Page 13 Wednesday, September 15, 2010 3:20 PM
Some domestic beers require slightly higher pressure
and some imported beers require lower pressure,
which explains the need for separate pressure
regulators for each brand. This information is readily
available from the beer distributor. Areas with higher
elevations will require higher keg pressure, specifically
one psi for each 2,000 ft (609.6 m) elevation above
sea level. This increase in keg pressure is necessary
to retain the correct carbonation level in the beer itself,
since the carbonation level is a function of the
“absolute pressure” and not the difference in pressure
between keg and atmospheric (which is the pressure
maintained by the pressure regulator on the beer
system).
The applied CO2 pressure is also the vehicle for
forcing the beer from the keg through the beer lines
and into the glass at the dispensing point. Many
operators mistakenly believe that this is the only
function, or at least the major function, of the applied
pressure, and therefore the pressure may be
decreased or increased at will to facilitate a desired
dispensing rate (flow rate). Because of the effects on
the carbonation level of the beer, and therefore the
quality of the beer itself, the pressure must not be
changed to achieve a desired change in the flow rate.
The only acceptable method for adjusting the flow rate
is by changing the amount of the restriction or “drag” in
the system with respect to the flowing beer. The
amount of additional restriction may be adjusted by
adding or removing lengths of the main beer lines, or
adding or removing shorter portions of smaller sized
tubing (choker lines) to the beer lines.

13
STH13_Tech.book Page 14 Wednesday, September 15, 2010 3:20 PM
In some beer systems the walk-in cooler or storage
room is located remotely and on different levels from
the dispensing points. Under these conditions, even
with large size beer lines it is often not feasible to
dispense beer at an adequate flow rate with normal
keg pressures since the drag, or resistance of the
lines, as well as vertical lift that may be required can
be sufficient to reduce the flow greatly at these
standard pressures. In these cases it is often
necessary to pressurize the keg as much as two or
three times the normal keg pressure in order to
provide an acceptable flow rate at the dispensing
point. This type of system is commonly known as a
“long draw” or “remote” system. Manufacturers of
these systems recommend using a blend of gasses or
beer pumps (usually a mixture of CO2 and air or CO2
and nitrogen) to pressurize the system without over
carbonating the beer. The refrigerated chamber
containing the kegs can be located more than 450 ft
(91.4 m) away from the serving location using these
long draw techniques.

TEMPERATURE
The effects of temperature are manifested in several
ways. The temperature itself is very significant. A
temperature between 36°F (2.2°C) and 38°F (3.3°C)
gives the best dispensing results, and is generally
favored by most people as providing the best taste. If
the beer is cooled below 36°F (2.2°C), more CO2 is
absorbed and a greater tendency to out gas may
occur when the beer is released to atmospheric
pressure by dispensing, thereby producing more foam.
The greater absorption of CO2 also imparts a slightly
more bitter taste to the beer, which is objectionable to
most beer drinkers.
Above 38°F (3.3°C) the CO2 contained in the beer is at
a higher energy level and can escape more easily.
Therefore out gassing and foaming can occur more
readily. This energy level continues to increase at
higher temperatures, resulting in a rapid increase in
the beer’s tendency to foam.
An increase in temperature in the beer lines or the
faucet itself can result in “fracturing” (out gassing)
when the beer is dispensed. This generally occurs
when un-refrigerated beer lines extend outside of the
beer cooler and the ambient temperature surrounding
the lines is at a higher temperature than the cooler
itself. This can also occur in the beer “tower” at which
the faucets are connected when an insufficient amount
of coolant is circulated in the tower. The general result
is that the first glass dispensed after a delay of several
minutes will experience significant fracturing, resulting
Part Number STH13 9/10
15
STH13_Tech.book Page 16 Wednesday, September 15, 2010 3:20 PM
in a larger head of foam. To maintain the correct
temperature in the tower, care must be taken to ensure
that a sufficient amount of coolant is delivered to this
area.
THE TEMPERATURE/PRESSURE COMBINATION
Since carbonation of the beer is related to both
pressure and temperature, it is important to
understand this relationship in order to assure that the
highest quality beer product is delivered to the
customer. Higher than normal temperatures require
higher than normal pressures in order to maintain
carbonation. Specifically, in order to maintain proper
carbonation, the CO2 pressure must be increased
when there is an increase in the beer temperature. For
example, a typical American beer that would be
properly carbonated at 12 psi (0.8 bar) at a
temperature of 38°F (3.3°C) would require an increase
in pressure to maintain the same level of carbonation
at a temperature of 39°F (4.2°C). Conversely, lowering
the temperature requires a corresponding decrease in
CO2 pressure to prevent over-carbonation. In actual
practice pure CO2 pressures above approximately
16.5 psi (1.1 bar) (at sea level) should be avoided at
normal temperature (36°F [2.2°C] to 38°F [3.3°C]) to
avoid an unacceptable level of over carbonation which
leads to foaming problems. When the pressures
above this level are required for good dispensing, the
operator should switch to a blend of CO2 and nitrogen
for pressurization or beer pumps.
The beer faucet itself is surrounded by normal ambient
room air and will warm slightly over a period of several
minutes. Since a small amount of beer is trapped
behind the faucet, there is a likelihood that this small
amount of beer will also warm slightly. The result will
be that this trapped beer will fracture and produce
foam on the first beer dispensed after an extended idle
time. When all of the slightly warmed beer has been
depleted from the faucet and the beer line, subsequent
beers drawn immediately following the first should
produce about the same amount of foam or head, but
less than the first beer.
In long draw or remote systems as described above, it
is essential to refrigerate the beer lines throughout
16
Part Number STH13 9/10
STH13_Tech.book Page 17 Wednesday, September 15, 2010 3:20 PM
their entire length at about the same temperature as
the beer in the cooler. Most manufacturers of these
systems agree that it is not possible to adequately
refrigerate these lines using cold air over distances
greater than about 15 ft (4.6 m). Therefore, these
systems utilize a liquid refrigerant line continuously
cycling propylene glycol at a temperature below 30°F
(-1.1°C) (or other suitable liquid coolant) in physical
contact with beer lines and with the overall assembly
contained in a flexible, insulated housing. These
systems, when properly designed and installed,
generally offer the best and most consistent draught
beer product. On the other hand, an improperly
designed, installed, or maintained system (even a
rough or damaged gasket) can produce “shots” of
foam, continuous foam, or continuously warm and
therefore, foamy beer.
NOTE: A properly designed, installed, and maintained
draught dispensing system should deliver beer at 1.75
to 2.0 ounces per second. The beer should be
dispensed at 38°F (3.3°C) or less. The beer should
flow in a solid, clear column smoothly (neither falling or
pushing) from the faucet to the glass.

Multiplex Beermaster™ Beer Dispensing
System
The beer keg is kept in a refrigerated cooler at the proper
temperature for dispensing. The pressure system
supplies pressurized gas to the kegs at a specific
pressure for each keg, this pressure is determined by the
installer taking into consideration the distance, vertical
rise and fall of the conduit (insulated bundle of tubing),
along with the natural pressure in the keg. The beer is
pushed through the lines in the conduit from the cooler to
the dispensing valve. To maintain the cold temperature in
the conduit the refrigeration system uses the Multiplex
Beermaster™ refrigeration unit which chills a glycol bath.
This glycol, which is adjusted to below 30°F (-1.11°C), is
circulated through the conduit up to the dispensing faucet
and back where it is re-chilled in the bath. These chilled
glycol lines are touching the beer lines in the conduit,
maintaining the cold temperature of the beer. The beer is
then brought up to the dispensing system where the
conduit tubing is restricted down to a smaller diameter
tube of a length, calculated by the installer, that’s
designed to give a 1.75 ounce per second flow of a
perfectly dispensed beer.

STH13_Tech.book Page 19 Wednesday, September 15, 2010 3:20 PM
PRESSURE SYSTEM
The pressure system supplies the pressurized gas to
the kegs at a specific pressure for each keg. This
consists of a high pressure regulator to reduce the
CO2 or mixed gas pressure from the high pressure
cylinder to 40 psi (2.8 bar). This gas is fed to the
secondary regulators to beer pumps or the optional
blender which may nitrogen with the CO2 to help
reduce the chance of providing extra carbonation to
the beer. The secondary regulators are adjusted to the
installer calculated pressure, calculated for each keg.
This pressure is calculated to push the beer through
the conduit to the dispensing faucets and flow at a
desired 1.75 oz per second flow rate.

19
STH13_Tech.book Page 20 Wednesday, September 15, 2010 3:20 PM
REFRIGERATION SYSTEM
The refrigeration system consists of the Multiplex
Beermaster™ refrigeration unit which chills a food
grade glycol to below 30°F (-1.11°C). This glycol is
circulated through an insulated bundle of tubing
(conduit) by a 70 GPH circulating pump and returned
to the refrigeration unit for re-chilling. This very cold
glycol is continually circulating through independent
lines in the conduit. The beer lines (which are also in
the conduit) are in contact with the glycol lines which
will maintain the temperature of the beer. This ensures
that the product is dispensed at the beer cooler
temperature. The refrigeration compressor will cycle
ON and OFF as needed to maintain the consistent
temperature of glycol. Each size of Beermaster™
Refrigeration Unit is rated for a maximum total conduit
length to keep the beer dispensing at a consistently
cold temperature, maintaining the proper temperature
and taste of the beer.

DISPENSING SYSTEM
The dispensing system consists of one of the many
different styles and sizes of dispensing towers which
can have any number of dispensing faucets used to
dispense the beer into the glass, mug or pitcher. As
the beer comes out of the conduit it must be adjusted
to give a maximum 2 oz per second flow rate to reduce
the chance of foaming and to dispense a proper glass
of beer. The proper way to adjust the flow rate of the
beer is to reduce the diameter of the tubing, using an
installer calculated length, of 3/16" diameter restrictor
tubing. The beer then flows through an aluminum or
stainless steel heat exchanger, that is kept in contact
with the very cold glycol lines, to maintain the cold
temperature all the way to the dispensing faucet and
into the glass.

throughout the life of the keg, the system must have
the proper balance of temperature, applied pressure to
the keg and rate of flow at the faucet.
The installer must calculate, taking into consideration
the static resistance in the conduit (amount of vertical
rise and fall) as well as frictional resistance (the length
of the conduit itself), the internal pressure of the keg
according to the Brewmaster, the altitude at the
location as well as the temperature of the beer in the
cooler. The object is to dispense the beer as fast as
possible (2 oz per second) with the proper gas
pressure (CO2 or mixed gas) applied to the keg and
adjusted so it will not change the carbonation or taste
of the beer. The installer must determine the proper
pressure applied to the keg as well as the length of the
restrictor attached to the dispensing faucet giving a
consistent properly dispensed beer.

Pulling Conduit Through Floor Chase
1. Determine the most convenient way of routing
conduit, starting at the end which offers adequate
room for installation. The conduit installation
process requires the assistance of at least two (2)
qualified personnel.
2. Route the steel fish tape through chase opening.
Push fish tape through entire chase until it
appears at opposite end.
3. Locate an appropriate length of rope and tie to
end of fish tape (end which was routed through
chase in step 2). Approximately 2 ft (0.6 m) from
steel fish tape/rope connection, secure a swab to
rope (use mop heads or a bundle of rags for
swab).
4. Pull end of fish tape from starting point through
chase with rope and swab. The swab will clean
any construction materials, moisture, or debris
that may exist in floor chase. Continue to swab
the chase until the swab exits the chase clean and
dry.
5. After floor chase has been cleaned, remove steel
fish tape and swab from rope. Locate bundle of
beer conduit and unspool conduit to allow
unrestricted feed during installation process.
6. Locate rope through floor chase opening and
connect to proper end of beer conduit.
NOTE: The beer conduit is designed to be pulled
through floor chase in the direction of arrows printed
on conduit.

INSTALLING THE CONDUIT KIT
Connections Preview
Review the three illustrations under “Circuit Diagrams”
in the Diagrams section to determine which best
illustrates your particular installation. Consider the
following while examining the drawings:
Beer conduits have been designed to achieve the
proper cooling of each encased beer line. In order to
function properly, you must follow these guidelines:
Up to eight line conduit:
• six beer maximum, one glycol circuit (two lines)
Ten and over line conduit:
• two glycol circuits (four lines)
To ensure colder dispensing temperatures, glycol
should flow directly to the dispensing towers before
returning to the remote Glycol Chiller Unit. After
examining the drawings determine the desired glycol
circuit to be achieved and illustrate on paper for
referral. Do the same for the assignment of the beer
supply lines.

Balancing the System
DETERMINING RESTRICTOR LINE LENGTH AND
APPLIED KEG PRESSURE
In order to ensure a proper, foam-free, beer flow from
each faucet, the following instructions and calculations
must be completed. Use the formulas found in this
section to determine the required restrictor line length
and applied keg pressure needed for each beer line. In
order to complete these calculations the following
information will be needed:
• Brands of beer to be dispensed (if blended gas is
used to push the beer, this is not required).
• Temperature of the Walk-In Cooler (default 38°F
[3.3°C]).
• Altitude (Distance above sea level).
• Total line length for each beer line.
• Overall lift or drop for each beer line.
To determine the appropriate Applied Keg pressures
and Restrictor Line Lengths see attached work sheets
and refer to examples A and B.
To properly determine the required restrictor line
lengths and applied keg pressure to be used for each
beer follow the instructions below.
1. First determine which brands of beer will be
dispensed at which faucet. Use the “System
Calculators” to record data (see the Charts
section).
2. Determine keg temperature at cooler.
3. Once the brand and keg temperature are known
the Internal Keg Pressure can be found by
referring to the “Natural Keg Pressures Chart” in
the Charts section.
4. Determine the number of feet above sea level to
adjust natural keg pressure for particular location.
5. If required adjust for “Lite” or “Light” beer by
adding 1 psi to natural keg pressure. Check with
local beer wholesaler for additional information.
48
Part Number STH13 9/10
STH13_Tech.book Page 49 Wednesday, September 15, 2010 3:20 PM
Example:
-
Budweiser on faucet number 1
-
Walk-in cooler for kegs at 38°F
-
Anheuser Busch (Budweiser) at 38°F=12 psi
-
Altitude adjustment at 1,000 ft (1 psi/2,000 ft
above sea level)=0.5 psi
-
“Lite” beer adjustment = 0 Adjusted keg
pressure = 12.0 + .5 + 0 = 12.5 psi
-
Determine the required Applied Keg Pressure
by taking the adjusted keg pressure and
adding 2 psi
Example:
12.5 psi (adjusted keg pressure)
+ 2.0 psi = 14.5 psi Applied Keg Pressure
(pressure the secondary regulator will be
adjusted at)
6. Determine the total line length and tubing
diameter from bottom of keg to faucet. This must
be done for each individual beer line (refer to the
figures below for proper method of determining
line length).
7. Once the run length is known calculate the
amount of restriction.
Example:
50 ft (length of conduit)
x 0.07 (restriction 3/8" ID poly) = 3.5 psi

Restriction (pounds per square inch)
Restrictor Line: 3/16" ID @ ft=3.0 psi
Beer Supply Line: 3/8" ID @ ft=0.07 psi
8. Determine the lift or drop restriction by taking the
total vertical lift in feet and subtracting the total
vertical drop in feet and multiplying the remainder
by 0.5 psi.
Add 1/2 psi for every foot of vertical lift. Subtract
1/2 psi for every foot of vertical drop.
Equal lifts and drops cancel one another.
Example:
13 ft lift - 8 ft drop = 5 ft of lift
5 ft of lift x 0.5 psi = 2.5 psi lift*
*This figure will be negative if the drop exceeds
the lift.
9. Determine the total line restriction by adding each
of the previously calculated restriction factors.
Example:
3.5 psi (length of run restriction) + 2.5 psi (lift/drop
restriction) = 6.0 psi (total line restriction)
10. Determine the required psi of restriction that will
be required by taking the Applied Keg Pressure
and subtracting the Total Line Restriction.
Example:
14.5 psi (applied keg pressure) + 6.0 psi (total line
restriction) = 8.5 psi (restriction factor)
If this figure is greater than or equal to 6.0 psi
proceed to the instructions outlined in step A.
below. If this figure is less than 6.0 psi proceed to
the instructions outlined in step B. below.
A. To convert the psi of restriction needed to
inches of required 3/16" ID restriction line,
use the following equation:
Number psi needed ÷ 0.25 psi = number of inches
of restrictor
Part Number STH13 9/10
51
STH13_Tech.book Page 52 Wednesday, September 15, 2010 3:20 PM
Example:
8.5 psi (restriction factor) ÷ 0.25 psi = 34.0 in (of
required restrictor line)
B. This example (refer to the figures above,
Example B) reflects an increased vertical lift
factor of 24 ft (19 ft of lift + 5 ft of lift=24 ft). It
requires a lift/drop restriction of 12 psi (24 x
0.5/ft lift=12 psi).
Example:
14.5 psi (applied keg pressure) - 15.5 psi (total
line restriction) = -1.0 psi (restriction factor)
Since the restriction factor in this example is less
than 6.0 psi, a 24" fixed restrictor length will be
required.
Volumes (liquid oz per linear ft)
3/16" ID @ ft = 0.18
1/4" ID @ ft = 0.33
5/16" ID @ ft = 0.51
3/8" ID @ ft = 0.73
1/2" ID @ ft = 1.31
The Adjusted Applied Keg Pressure (the pressure
the secondary regulator will be adjusted to) can
now be determined by taking the Total Line
Restriction and adding 8 psi.
Example:
3.5 psi (run restriction) + 12.0 psi (lift/drop
restriction) = 15.5 psi (total line restriction)
15.5 psi (total line restriction) + 8.0 psi = 23.5 psi
(adjusted keg pressure)
STARTING UP THE SYSTEM
Before Starting Up the System
Each of the steps below should be done 24 hours prior
to the tapping or dispensing of any beer.
1. Place all kegs in a walk-in cooler at 36°F to 38°F
and allow them to temper properly.
2. Turn ON the Beermaster Glycol Chiller circulating
glycol pump(s).
52
Part Number STH13 9/10
STH13_Tech.book Page 53 Wednesday, September 15, 2010 3:20 PM
3. After leak testing all glycol and beer supply lines,
wrap the lines firmly with foil (to ensure a good
heat exchange) and then insulate all lines; to
ensure a minimum of 1" insulation over all areas
of exposed beverage line.
4. After glycol has circulated through system for
approximately one hour, remove the strainer from
the glycol bath. Flush the strainers clean with
fresh water and reinstall.
Pressure Setting and Start-up
1. Adjust the primary CO2 regulator to 40 PSI and
secure the lock nut.
2. If a blender is utilized proceed with adjustments
provided with blender kit.
3. Adjust the secondary regulators. It is
recommended that when applied keg pressures
exceed 20 PSI the secondary regulators be
adjusted 2 PSI below the calculated pressure. If
more pressure is required after tapping keg,
increase as needed.
4. Tap the kegs and proceed to draw beer from each
valve one at a time. Ensure each brand is
properly drawing before proceeding to the next.
The proper flow rate for beer at each valve is
2 ounces per second. Beer should be flowing
clear with a full flow from the dispensing faucet (a
considerable amount of dispensing may be
needed).
5. Secure all secondary regulator lock nuts and
complete the information label, identifying the
product and its applied keg pressure for each
appropriate regulator.
6. Instruct operator on proper maintenance and
operating requirements.

MULTIPLEX REMOTE CONDENSER
PRE-INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS
1. Installation and maintenance are to be performed
only by qualified refrigeration personnel. These
technicians must have EPA certification (USA),
are familiar with local codes and regulations, and
are experienced with this type of remote
refrigeration equipment.
2. As a condition of the warranty, the check, test and
start-up procedure must be performed by qualified
personnel. Because of possible shipping damage,
check both the condensing unit and refrigeration
unit(s) for refrigerant leaks.
3. If the refrigeration unit is located on a roll out
platform, you must coil up to one round between
the back of the stand and the wall. This allows pull
out of the refrigeration unit for servicing.
4. If the refrigeration unit is located in a stationary
location, you must remove excess refrigeration
tubing as described below.
MULTIPLEX PRE-CHARGED REFRIGERATION
LINES PRE-INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS
1. Both the discharge and liquid remote condensing
lines must be kept to a minimum distance for
maximum performance. All Multiplex systems are
capacity rated to 100 ft (30.5 m) tubing distance
between the compressor and condenser.
2. Any vertical rise 25 ft (7.62 m) or greater must
have a manufactured or installed trap (bend), in
the discharge refrigeration line from the
compressor to the remote condenser. A trap is
necessary for every additional 25 ft (7.62 m)
vertical rise. When excessive vertical rise exists,
this trap allows oil to reach the condenser and
return to the compressor.
3. The easiest method to create a trap is to bend the
tubing (smoothly, no kinks) into the trap form.

4. The trap(s) must be of minimum height of 3"
(7.6 cm) and a width of 6" (15.2 cm) to minimize
oil accumulation. The traps can also be bent out
of the refrigeration tubing. Carefully bend the
tubing down 12", and then sweep the tubing back
up.
5. It is critical that the Multiplex remote condensing
line size specifications for the specific model be
maintained. The specifications are 1/2" discharge
and 3/8" liquid lines.
INSTALLING THE MULTIPLEX REMOTE
CONDENSER
The Multiplex remote condensing units have a
208-230 Volt, 50/60 HZ, 1 PH fan motor that includes a
permanent split capacitor and internal overload
protection. The electrical wires from the refrigeration
unit wire to the condenser. The electrical installation
must be in accordance with local codes, National
Electrical Code and regulations.
1. Determine a position for installation that will allow
access for maintenance and is free from
obstruction. Verify hot air discharge from other
condensers does not interfere with the inlet of this
condenser.
2. Install the four legs to the sides of the condenser
using the mounting bolts provided.

3. The General Contractor or Owner must secure
two treated lumber 4" x 4" x 36" (or longer). You
may then mount the remote condenser to the
treated lumber.
4. The General Contractor or Owner must install a 3"
pitch pot in the roof. Then seal for weather
protection.
3" Pitch Pot
Roof
5. Locate the pre-charged refrigeration lines shipped
with the system. These lines must be a correct
length for the building design. Avoiding any kinks,
neatly route these lines from the remote
condenser to the refrigeration unit. Excess
refrigeration tubing must be handled in one of two
ways. When coiling the excess tubing, make sure
the inlet to the coil is at the top of the coil and the
exit is the bottom of the coil. There can be no
more than one turn to the coil. If you have more
Part Number STH13 9/10
61
STH13_Tech.book Page 62 Wednesday, September 15, 2010 3:20 PM
tubing, you must cut out the excess before
connecting the ends. When cutting the tubing, you
must first evacuate the refrigerant (line sets have
a positive refrigerant holding charge of two to
three ounces). After shortening and welding the
tubing together again, you must evacuate the
tubing to 250 microns. Then recharge the tubing
with 4 ounces of appropriate refrigerant.
! Caution
Excess refrigeration tubing must be properly
cared for before being connected to either the
remote condenser or the refrigeration unit.
CONNECTING THE PRE-CHARGED
REFRIGERATION LINES
NOTE: Before connecting the pre-charged
refrigeration lines, the refrigeration unit must be
properly located, leveled, and the water bath filled 1"
(2.5 cm) below the installed drain pipe.
1. Attach low side gauge set to service port on each
line set to verify positive pressure within the line
set.
NOTE: If for any reason the lines are damaged and/or
leaking or the lines no longer charged, refer to “How to
Re-charge the Line Sets”. If the line set is too long for
the application, refer to “How to Shorten the Line
Sets”.
2. Always make the connections at the condenser
first, using the end of the pre-charged lines with
the valve ports.
3. Connect the condenser side with the quick
connectors (discharge and liquid) up to
condenser. Refer to the section titled “Aeroquip
Connection” in these instructions.
4. Connect the refrigeration unit side with the quick
connects (discharge and liquid). Make sure to
provide a discharge trap at back of refrigeration
unit, or bend discharge line down 12" and then up
smoothly (no kinks) to provide a trap.
62
Part Number STH13 9/10
STH13_Tech.book Page 63 Wednesday, September 15, 2010 3:20 PM
5. If a low refrigerant charge is detected, recover
and recharge the system adding the unit name
plate charge.
6. Repair any damages to the line sets before
proceeding.
HOW TO SHORTEN THE LINE SETS
1. Do not connect either end of the tubing to the
system before everything is set in place. Standard
refrigeration practices must be followed regarding
the tubing installation.
2. Excess refrigeration tubing must be handled in
one of two ways. With a short amount of excess
tubing (about 10 feet), you may coil that amount
vertically between the condenser and refrigeration
unit. When coiling the excess tubing, make sure
the inlet to the coil is at the high side of the coil
and the exit is the low side of the coil. There can
be no more than one turn to the coil. The coil must
continue in a downward spiral with no overlaps,
similar to a cork screw. If you have more tubing,
you must cut out the excess before connecting
the ends. When cutting the tubing, you must first
evacuate the refrigerant.
3. After shortening the tubing and welding together
again, you must vacuum the tubing to 250
microns.
4. Recharge the tubing with the appropriate
refrigerant at 4 ounces per length of tubing.
HOW TO RE-CHARGE THE LINE SETS
NOTE: This procedure to be used only with damaged
or evacuated line sets or with unknown refrigerant
type.
1. With the remote condenser lines properly hooked
and sealed to the condenser, evacuate to 250
microns for 1 hour, using both Schrader ports on
the service line set.
2. For units with model numbers beginning with
“SS”, charge the condenser and line set as
described here. Add 0.72 oz/ft (0.067 kg/m) of
remote line set (one way run distance) plus
condenser name plate charge.
Part Number STH13 9/10
63
STH13_Tech.book Page 64 Wednesday, September 15, 2010 3:20 PM
Example:
45 ft of line set
45 x 0.72 oz = 32.4 oz
32.4 oz + condenser charge = Total charge
If the line set and the main refrigeration unit are
connected, you must also add that refrigerant
charge.
For units with part numbers beginning with “TS”,
charge according to the nameplate charge on the
refrigeration unit. That is enough refrigerant for up
to 100 feet of tubing plus the Multiplex condenser.
If you have another brand condenser, please add
additional charge for the condenser (example: up
to three pounds for a MAC condenser).
3. Connect line sets to the proper discharge and
liquid mating connectors on the refrigeration unit
using quick connects. Refer to the section titled
“Aeroquip Connection” in these instructions.
4. Be sure to observe proper refrigeration
techniques when running the line set.
A. The discharge line must loop down at the
compressor end to trap liquid from returning
to the compressor, unless you are coiling
refrigeration tubing behind the unit.
B. The discharge line must loop above
discharge connector at the condenser to
resist liquid returning to the compressor. Any
excess tubing must be removed from the line
set before the line set is connected to any
equipment.
C. The discharge line must have one P trap
every 25 ft (7.6 m) of vertical rise to allow oil
to stair-step up to the condenser and
eventually return to the compressor.
NOTE: When the connections are made, the seal in
the couplings are broken, and if removed for any
reason, the refrigerant charge will be lost.

Operation
How the Multiplex Works
The refrigeration units are remote refrigeration units
that derive their peak capacity from the water/glycol
bath. A tower is used to dispense the beer at the
desired location. Conduit (an insulated bundle of
tubing) connects the refrigeration unit and kegs of beer
to the tower. The conduit has the beer and glycol lines
wrapped together and the glycol is circulated to keep
the beer in the conduit lines cold. The refrigeration
system is controlled by a sensing bulb located on an
adjustable bracket in the glycol bath. Depending on
the setpoint of the temperature control, the
refrigeration system cycles ON and OFF as the
temperature of the glycol bath changes.
Start-up

Sequence of Operation
ELECTRONIC TEMPERATURE CONTROL (ETC)
The Electronic Temperature Control (ETC) has been
factory preset and tested. The ETC will turn the
refrigeration compressor on and off to maintain the
glycol bath temperature between 27°F (-2.7°C) and
29°F (-1.6°C). This is considered the best temperature
range for most beer cooling applications. The front
panel of the ETC has a liquid crystal display (LCD) and
an output relay indicator light-emitting diode (LED).
The LCD is visible through a “window” in the cover
panel. The LED is visible only when the cover panel is
removed.
During normal operation, the LCD displays the glycol
bath temperature and an icon (*) indicating the cooling

NOTE: These units have part numbers that end with
“E” and only applies to these units.
Prerequisites
• The glycol bath must cover the evaporator and low
level probe.
Initial Power-up Delay
The control has a 30-second delay when power is
connected, or disconnected and reconnected. The
display will show Pd (power delay) and the seconds
left in the countdown cycle.
Normal Circuit Operation
Pressing the COMP/AGIT button will start the water/
glycol bath agitator immediately and initiate a 180
second compressor delay. The display will show Cd99
(compressor delay & 99 seconds) and will start to
count down from 99 seconds after the first 81 seconds
have elapsed. After 180 seconds the compressor and
condenser fan motor energize and the COMP/AGIT
LED will start flashing. Pressing any of the CIRC A,
CIRC B, CARB B, or CARB A buttons will immediately

STH13_Tech.book Page 112 Wednesday, September 15, 2010 3:20 PM
energize the circulating pumps and turn on their
respective LEDs constantly. The display will show the
water/glycol bath temperature.
The compressor and condenser fan will continue to
run until set temperature is reached. Once reached the
compressor and condenser fan will turn off and the
LED will change from flashing to constantly on to
display that there is power. A 2°F rise above the set
temperature will cause the compressor and condenser
fan on again. This cycle will repeat as required
depending on load.
Power Interruption
During a power interruption the control will resume
from the point of interruption when power is reapplied
and the time delay expires. Any switches/components
that were energized when power was interrupted will
be energized when power is reapplied.
Error Codes
E3 = Water/Glycol mix too low, add mix
E4 = Water/Glycol temp too high (>45°F)

Troubleshooting
Foreword
This Troubleshooting Guide has been developed to
assist you in determining what the probable cause for
any particular problem you may experience with your
Multiplex Beermaster Beverage System could be. It
then advises of the proper corrective action to be
taken to remedy that problem.
Because of the ever present danger from electrical
shock, and the existence of high pressure water and
gas on the system, it is strongly recommended that
only qualified service personnel perform actual
repairs.
Under each of the sections, Section 1: Restriction and
Section 2: Beermaster Glycol Chiller System, you’ll
first find the problem listed in bold type starting on the
left margin. It will be followed by three headings also in
bold type and each with its own column. The first is a
“Qualifier” which is designed to quickly qualify or
eliminate the “Symptoms” listed to the right and below
the qualifying statement. For example, under
Section 2: Glycol Chiller System, you’ll find “Too little
restriction” for the same problem, “A recovery
problem...”; “Since the recovery problem symptoms
simulate a low pressure problem,...”. Each asking you
to determine if “beer had been drawn” before
proceeding to the second column “Symptoms”. Not all
problems have recovery problems. For those that do,
first examine each one listed below “Qualifier” before
continuing through “Symptoms”. The third heading,
“Corrective Steps” (found on the far right margin), will
direct you in determining if the symptoms are actually
responsible for the problem and what should be done
to remedy the problem.
On occasion, you’ll find “Note” and “Caution”
statements which have been included to make special
references to items which frequently are
misunderstood or ignored.

This guide is intended to assist you in locating the
cause of a problem. It is not, however, to be
considered a service and repair manual in that
Multiplex models vary in design.
It has been written to encompass all model
Beermaster Glycol Chillers. Some differences from
model to model will become obvious and it will be
required of the reader to apply this guide to each unit.

Problem
Possible Cause
To Correct
Section 1: Restriction
Too little restriction
Too much or too little restriction in a draught beer system will cause drawing
problems. If draught beer system does not have enough restriction it may
cause the following problems:
A recovery problem
simply means that the
beer is leaving the beer
line faster than the keg
can fill the line. When this
occurs it creates a
vacuum in the keg which
acts as if there was a low
pressure on the beer in
the keg. This causes the
CO2 to come out of the
beer line causing foaming
problems. (The following
symptoms occur most
frequently during the high
volume time of day.)
Beer draws too fast. If the
beer draws clear but too
fast and the pressure is
properly set, there may
not be enough restriction
in the system.
When drawing one
beer, the beer
flows very fast.
Since the recovery
problem symptoms
simulate a low pressure
problem, check to make
sure that the CO2 pressure
in the keg is flowing and
set properly.
If a pitcher is
drawn, the beer
starts clear then
starts to show
intermittent streaks
of foam followed
by all foam.
Refer to your records to
recheck your restriction
calculation for the system.
If you find your line does
not have enough
restriction, add the extra
restriction to the 3/16" end
of the beer line. If you have
no records, make up a new
beer line with the proper
restriction and replace the
existing line.
Beer draws clear
but foams in the
glass.
Follow the second
corrective step above.
The beer draws
too fast to satisfy
the retailer and his
help.
If the beer still flows too
fast, continue to add more
3/16" restrictor line to the
system to meet the
retailer’s needs.
Too much restriction
If a draught beer system is over restricted it may cause the following problems:
Beer draws too slow
122
Beer draws too
slowly with little or
no head.
First, ensure that the keg is
properly tapped. Second,
ensure that the CO2 is set
at the proper pressure and
is flowing to the keg. Check
the beer faucet to ensure
that there is no burr by the
vent hole on the inside of
the faucet.
The beer appears
to flutter or swirl
out of the faucet
causing the CO2 to
break out of the
beer and thus
creating excess
foam.
Systematically remove 6"
of the 3/16" restrictor line
until the beer flows with a
full faucet and at a rate of
flow desired by the retailer.

Problem
Possible Cause
To Correct
Section 2: Beermaster Glycol Chiller System
When troubleshooting a closed remote system, one should consider the
following areas:
Temperature
Beer draws warm
and is all foam.
Check coolant circulation
by:
Inspecting the coolant
circulation pump to
ensure it is on and
running.
• Inspecting the coolant
return line in reservoir
to ensure it is
circulating. Replace
pump if necessary.
Check coolant temperature
by:
• Adjusting the range
from 27°F (-2.7°C) to
29°F (-1.6°C).
• Fill reservoir to proper
level with 3:1 glycol
mix.
•
No beer flows
through system.
Check tap check ball and
free if stuck. Check
Coolant temperature. If it is
less than 27°F (-2.7°C), the
beer in the lines may be
frozen. Turn OFF coolant
compressor, then adjust
coolant temperature to be
between 27°F (-2.7°C) and
29°F (-1.6°C).
First beer out
always seems
foamy or streaky.
Ensure that coolant line is
in direct contact with the
beer line right up to the
back of the shank. If not,
place aluminum foil
between beer line and
coolant line, then insulate.
This will transfer the cold to
the beer line.
Beer in cooler is
above 40°F
(4.4°C).
Temperature of cooler
ideally should be less than
38°F (3.3°C). Contact an
authorized refrigeration
service agency to set
cooler.
Glycol is dirty or
too weak.
Clean reservoir and add
new glycol solution (add
new glycol to weak
solution). Should give Brix
on sugar refractor.
Glycol solution is
too warm.
Check outlet and inspect
agitator for proper
operation.

Problem
Possible Cause
To Correct
Pressure
Beer runs with
streaks.
System may be under
restricted. Add additional
restriction to system by
adding additional 3/16" I.D.
vinyl tubing to the faucet
end of the system.
Beer draws great
during slow time of
day but turns to all
foam during peak
sale periods.
See above. Check
regulator for proper
operation. Check primary
regulator to see if it allows
enough CO2 for secondary
regulators. Check walk-in
cooler temperature is 38°F
(3.3°C) or less.
Beer is flat.
Adjust air blender by
increasing CO2 in blend
and decreasing air in
blend. Or there is no
Air/CO2 blender.
Beer has off-taste
(bitter or “skunky”).
Change air intake filters.
Check for moisture in air
tank. Clean system. Check
air intake supply. Check air
filter and trap. Ensure
proper rotation of kegs in
series. Check cleaning
schedule for beer lines.

Component Check Procedures
Head Pressure Control Valve
Multiplex remote systems require head pressure
control valves with special settings. Replace defective
head pressure control valves only with “original”
Multiplex replacement parts.
OPERATION
The R404A head pressure control valve is non
adjustable.
At ambient temperatures of approximately 70°F (21°C)
or above, refrigerant flows through the valve from the
condenser to the receiver inlet. At temperatures below
this (or at higher temperatures if it is raining), the head
pressure control dome’s nitrogen charge closes the
condenser port and opens the bypass port from the
compressor discharge line.
In this modulating mode, the valve maintains minimum
head pressure by building up liquid in the condenser
and bypassing discharge gas directly to the receiver.
DIAGNOSING
1. Determine if the coil is clean. Air passes through
the condenser from the bottom up. Verify the coil
is clean by looking from the bottom up. Do not
look down through the fan.
2. Determine the air temperature entering the
remote condenser.
3. Determine if the head pressure is high or low in
relationship to the outside temperature. (Refer to
the proper “Normal Operating Pressures of
Refrigeration Units” in the Charts section.)
4. Determine the temperature of the liquid line
entering the receiver by feeling it. This line is
normally warm; “body temperature.”
5. Using the information gathered, refer to the chart
below.
NOTE: A head pressure control valve that will not
bypass, will function properly with condenser air
temperatures of approximately 70°F (21°C) or above.
Part Number STH13 9/10
137
STH13_Tech.book Page 138 Wednesday, September 15, 2010 3:20 PM
When the temperature drops below 70°F (21°C), the
head pressure control valve fails to bypass and the ice
machine malfunctions. Lower ambient conditions can
be simulated by rinsing the condenser with cool water
during the freeze cycle.

Verification
FAN CYCLE CONTROL VS. HEAD PRESSURE
CONTROL VALVE
A fan cycle control cannot be used in place of a head
pressure control valve. The fan cycle control is not
capable of bypassing the condenser coil and keeping
the liquid line temperature and pressure up.
This is very apparent when it rains or the outside
temperature drops. When it rains or the outside
temperature drops, the fan begins to cycle on and off.
At first, everything appears normal. But, as it continues
raining or getting colder, the fan cycle control can only
turn the fan off. All the refrigerant must continue to flow
through the condenser coil, being cooled by the rain or
low outside temperature.
This causes excessive sub-cooling of the refrigerant.
As a result, the liquid line temperature and pressure
are not maintained for proper operation.

Charging Multiplex Remote Refrigeration Unit
NOTE: System would have been opened for repairs.
Once completed, a vacuum of 500 microns would
have been maintained for 1/2 hour. The proper
procedure for charging the system includes the
reintroduction of all refrigerant that had been
recovered before making the repair.
1. Attach charging hose of gauge manifold to liquid
valve of the recovery cylinder (if no refrigerant
was in the system, and thus, no refrigerant was
recovered, attach charging hose to Refrigerant
cylinder). Open cylinder valve.
2. Place cylinder on charging scale-zero scale.
3. Open high side valve wheel of gauge manifold.
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO CHARGE SYSTEM ON
LOW SIDE—CHARGE IN A LIQUID STATE
ONLY WITH REFRIGERATION SYSTEM OFF.
4. Allow sufficient time for all refrigerant to transfer
from cylinder to refrigeration unit. If necessary, put
cylinder into bucket of hot water to increase the
internal pressure of the cylinder.
5. System total charge is the net result of:
A. Refrigeration Unit charge on nameplate
B. Remote line set length X .72 oz./ft.
C. 90% of condenser volume (cu. ft.) x
Refrigerant (wt./cu ft)
NOTE: Refrigerant weight varies with temperature.
R-404A weighs 72 lb/cu. ft. @ 32°; 62 lb/cu. ft. @ 95°
6. When all refrigerant has been transferred, close
valve wheel of the manifold.
7. Turn refrigeration unit on.

! Warning
Carbon Dioxide (CO2) displaces oxygen.
Exposure to a high concentration of CO2 gas
causes tremors, which are followed rapidly by
loss of consciousness and suffocation. If a CO2
gas leak is suspected, particularly in a small area,
immediately ventilate the area before repairing
the leak. CO2 lines and pumps must not be
installed in an enclosed space. An enclosed
space can be a cooler or small room or closet.
This may include convenience stores with glass
door self serve coolers. If you suspect CO2 may
build up in an area, venting of the BIB pumps
and/or CO2 monitors must be utilized.

! Warning
All wiring must conform to local, state and
national codes.
MINIMUM CIRCUIT AMPACITY
The minimum circuit ampacity is used to help select
the wire size of the electrical supply. (Minimum circuit
ampacity is not the beverage/ice machine’s running
amp load.) The wire size (or gauge) is also dependent
upon location, materials used, length of run, etc., so it
must be determined by a qualified electrician.
ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS
Refer to Ice Machine Model/Serial Plate for voltage/
amperage specifications.
