General Information
Ampco’s ROLEC DH utilizes a SBI shear pump to recirculate a fermenter and simultaneously
induce hop pellets into the stream of beer. The hop pellets remain dry until they meet the
stream of beer. A pressurized chamber that is purged of air and constantly filled with CO2 is
used to induce the pellets for fermenting, finished, or crashed beer.
Shipping Damage or Loss
Upon receiving equipment that is damaged or if your shipment is lost in transit, immediately file
a claim with the carrier. At time of pick-up, the carrier signed the bill of lading, acknowledging
that they have received the product from Ampco in good condition.
Pump Receiving
When applicable, Ampco covers the pump inlet and discharge ports prior to shipping, ensuring
that foreign matter does not enter the pump during shipment. If the protective covers are
missing upon arrival, remove the pump cover and inspect to ensure it is free from contaminate
before turning the shafts. Please make note of the serial number; this will assist in the process
of ordering replacement parts and/or a warranty claim. For more information regarding
shipment damage or warranty, please refer to Terms and Conditions (page 13).

Unit Overview
The SBI shear pump allows recirculation of the fermenter and induction/chopping of pellets.
Once recirculation is established, pellets can be drawn into the tee and then introduced into
the stream of beer.
The pellets are chopped in the SBI shear pump and introduced into the fermenter.
Recirculation continues as desired after pellets are induced.

Suggested Use:
Crashed beer – Induce the pellets and recirculate for three to four full volume turnovers.
Sample from the sampling port periodically to get an idea of hop particle exposure.
Un-crashed beer - Induce the pellets and recirculate for three to four full volume turnovers.
Sample from the sampling port periodically to get an idea of hop particle exposure.
Residual yeast will not release adverse flavors from the blind taste results.
Fermenting beer - Induce the pellets and STOP. No shearing of the yeast occurs as
observed under a microscope, although it is still suggested not to recirculate longer than
necessary. Beer may finish early as a result of agitation.
The following will be determined by experience gained from using the Ampco ROLEC DH:
1. Recirculation time
2. Piping configuration
Unit Configuration
The Ampco ROLEC DH Series should be placed as close to the fermenter as possible. Please
reference Figures 2-4 for suggested configurations.
Figure 2: Supply From Bottom Port / Discharge Into Racking Arm
This configuration is ideal for breweries that do not have top ports without
spray balls. It ensures partial contact,
but will rely on recirculation time of the
fermenter to ensure full-contact.
Three to four full volume turnovers are
suggested.

Unit Configuration
Figure 3: Supply From Bottom or Racking Arm / Discharge Into Top Port
This configuration is ideal to ensure maximum exposure. The
majority of breweries do not
have top ports, so this configuration is not common.
Figure 4: Supply From Racking Arm / Discharge Into Bottom Port
This configuration is necessary for large dry hops
where the cone becomes
filled with hop sediment.
This is normally only a
problem on 100+ BBL fermenters. The pump simply
cannot pull through the hop
sediment once it is too
thick. Three to four full volume turnovers are suggest-
Try to use hoses that match the fermenter port size. The longer the hose, the more line loss
will occur. This slows the induction and recirculation of the unit.

The VFD parameters must be checked prior to use. The most important parameters are:
 Full load current of the motor: The VFD must know the full load current (amps) of
the motor it is paired with. This allows the VFD to protect the motor if it is
overloaded. This current is listed on the motor nameplate.
 Max frequency: The suggested setting is 60Hz. This allows the user to ramp up
quickly without worrying about overshooting.
 Acceleration time: This allows the user to program a time in which the motor will
reach the set current.
 Deceleration mode: Ampco suggests a “coast” or immediate stop. This is okay
when the pump is filled with liquid as the motor will stop quickly from hydraulic drag.
 Direction: Ensure the pump is rotating the correct direction. Start at a low
frequency and watch the shaft rotation. It should be clockwise when looking at the
fan (back of the motor). If it is desired to switch the direction of the motor, but not
on the VFD, two of the three motor leads can be switched.
The VFD manual should be carefully read to determine if additional parameters are applicable.

CIP:
Step 1: Filling hop chamber with hot water
For CIPing, the hop chamber (M) should be closed at the glass top manway (K). The whirlpool
valve (O), the tank butterfly valve (D), and hop chamber valve (L) should be opened. Attach a
discharge valve (not provided) to the discharge of the unit and close it. Fill the hop chamber
(M) with hot water from the hot water supply through the inlet butterfly valve (F). Keep the hop
chamber valve (L) open until water spills out. When water spills out an acceptable level for
CIPing has been reached. Close the hop chamber valve (L).
Step 2: Adding caustic and establishing recirculation loop
Attach a supply hose from the discharge valve (not provided) of the unit looped back to the
inlet butterfly valve (F). Open the inlet butterfly valve (F) and the discharge valve (not
provided). USING PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT, add caustic, sanitizing, or passivating solution
to the hot water through the glass top manway (K) and re-close it. Turn on the SBI shear
pump (B) to 20-35Hz using VFD (N). Allow the pump to recirculate through its piping and
whirlpool the hop chamber (M) for 30-60 minutes or as suggested by the operator. Periodically
open the hop chamber valve (L) to ensure the seat is cleaned.
Step 3: Rinse cycle
Drain the hop chamber (M) by easiest method and perform a rinse cycle. Refill the hop
chamber (M) with water and recirculating for a time specified by the user. After the rinse cycle
allow the hop chamber (M) to dry before proceeding.
Hop Induction:
Step 1: Bring the fermenter up to 12-15 psi.
The reason for pressurizing the fermenter is as follows:
1. It will resist foaming when recirculating at a high flow.
2. The SBI shear pump (B) should create negative 10-15 psi differential pressure
when at 60Hz. If the pressure between the inlet butterfly valve (F) and the SBI
shear pump (B) gets near 0 psi, foaming will occur.
Hook up hoses from the inlet butterfly valve (F) and unit discharge according to figures 2-4 on
pages 6 and 7. Close the whirlpool valve (O) and tank butterfly valve (D). Flood the pump and
check for leaks. Record pressure from the pressure gauge (E).
CAUTION/WARNING: Hot water may cause burns. Caustic/Sanitizing
solutions may cause chemical burns. Wear proper protective gear when
handling hot water and chemicals.

Step 2: Purge the hop chamber of air and fill with hops.
Connect the ball valve (I) to the CO2 source. Open the ball valve (I) and adjust the CO2
regulator (H) to ensure the hop chamber (M) will be filled to 10-15 psi. Begin filling the hop
chamber (M) with CO2 while leaving the glass top manway (K) open. Allow a few minutes of
CO2 filling at atmospheric pressure, then dump bags of pellets into the hop chamber (M).
Spray the seal on the glass top manway (K) with peracetic acid or isopropyl alcohol, and then
close it. Open the hop chamber valve (L), and allow a few more minutes of purging to remove
air. Close the hop chamber valve (L), and then bring the vessel pressure up to 10-15 psi. If
the hop chamber (M) exceeds 15 psi, the pressure relief valve (J) will relieve pressure.
Step 3: Establish recirculation
Ensure the inlet butterfly valve (F) is open fully, the tank butterfly valve (D) is closed, the
whirlpool valve (O) is closed, and the discharge valve (not provided) is fully open. Operate the
VFD (N), and ensure the motor (A) is turning the correct direction. Increase the motor (A) to 60
Hz.
Step 4: Hop induction
Throttle the inlet butterfly valve (F) to 45 degrees, or until the pressure gauge (E) reads minus
10-15 psi from which it began in Step 1: Bring the fermenter up to 12-15 psi (page 9). Open
the tank butterfly valve (D), and induction will occur. Fine tune the position of the inlet butterfly
valve (F) until induction happens at a steady pace.
During operation:
A. Ensure the hop chamber (M) can remain near 15 psi. Relief through the pressure
relief valve (J) is normal.
B. If a clog occurs, first fully open the inlet butterfly valve (F), then re-throttle it to its
induction position established in the beginning of Step 4 Hop induction.
C. If clog prevails, repeat item B several times.
D. If clog still prevails, open the whirlpool valve (O) for a few seconds to whirlpool the
vessel.
Caution:
Using the whirlpool valve (O) should be a last resort. This valve is designed to break up large
clumps of hop pellets. Introducing beer into the hop chamber (M) creates a wet cone, which
will promote future sticking. This will make the process more difficult.
CAUTION/WARNING: Do not over pressurize hop chamber (M).
Doing so can result in serious injury to the operator as well as
damage to the unit.
WEAR SAFETY GLASSES, especially when viewing hops
through glass top manway (K).

Operating
Step 5: End of hop induction
Once the pellets have been induced, there will be residual pellets stuck on the side of hop
chamber (M). This is when the whirlpool valve (O) should be opened to create a whirlpool to
ensure all pellets are induced. Once the pellets are gone, close the whirlpool valve (O), then
close the tank butterfly valve (D). The pressure relief valve (J) may vent to atmosphere during
whirlpool. This is acceptable.
Recirculation should occur according to the guidelines on page 6.
Example: a 60 BBL fermenter needs to be recirculated 3.5 times with a SBI-R10 model. See
page 4 for specifications of pump.

Maintenance
The Ampco ROLEC DH should be hot rinsed after use. This is done by performing a rinse
cycle; Refill the hop chamber with water and recirculate for a time specified by the user. After
the rinse cycle allow the hop chamber to dry completely. This ensures the seal faces are free
of particles and product, which can cause damage when used the next time. It also protects
the elastomers and seals in the valves and other components from having product adhere to
them.
