16 Head CIMEC help
I am looking for help with a 1995 16 head CIMEC single cap bottling line, one thing I am in need of is the manual, I've been waiting for some time now for word from italy.
Also want to find out what type of pump is best for beer tranfer to the line.
I can only go to 15 psi on my tanks, and have been told the pump to use is a diaphragm 5 to 6 gpm with bowl pressure at 35 psi., gpm sounds about right for around 50 bpm, but bowl pressure seems high to me.
I've been using a 4 head meheen for nine years so this is a big step forward,
Any one out there having a 16 head like this that would be willing to help would be greatly appreciated.

Currently I have a 97' 12 head CIMEC, and in the past, I operated one similar to yours. Give me a call, I should be able to help. 406-388-0322.
Cimec phone number +39 0141 832203, if it helps.
We currently use a positive displacment pump(rotary lobe) to maintain 2.5 - 3.5 bar (appx. 36-51 psi)pressure on our filling bowl.
hope that helps

CIMEC fillers are custom made for each customer, so you will need to provide the S/N for the filler to get the correct manual. It will cost some money also to get it.
If you need help, you can PM the S/N to me and I can pass it along. (CIMEC is in are area this week)
Manual for CIMEC
I got a manual for a CIMEC/16 from Prospero.
$70, for a photocopy and it's only a list of parts. As a user manual it's useless.
