CM Model Handpumps
The Angram Counter Mounting (CM) handpump eliminates the usual problems of through-bar fitting. Because of its unique action assembly, the unit can be installed into bar tops of any thickness up to 2" without the need for packings, shims or adjustments of any kind. The brassware alignment is automatically correct, as is the cylinder alignment. Fitting becomes a simple matter of cutting the aperture using the template provided and bolting the unit in.
As with the cabinet version, the modular design allows rapid removal of service exchanges and assemblies
The optional Water-Jacketed Cylinder Assembly keeps beer within the cylinder cool.
water jacket obviously needs to be hooked up to a supply of coolant
such as cold water or glycol. If glycol is used, the pressure needs to
be below 30 psi, otherwise the water jacket can be damaged.
alternative is to set up a water reservoir in your cask fridge and pump
it around the cylinder. It makes sense to run it along the beer line to
keep that cool as well. It is important that the pump you use is NOT a
submersible as the action of the pump will generate heat in the water
reservoir thus defeating the object.

SCHEMATIC drawing with precise measurements is also available.
Occasionally a replacement part is required to keep the handpump working smoothly and efficiently. Here is an EXPLODED-VIEW DRAWING to help understand how all the parts come together and what might be required. A separate exploded-view drawing is available for the CYLINDER ASSEMBLY. A PARTS LISTING is shown separately with reference codes.
Some parts are instock and can be ordered directly, while others need to be special-ordered.
