BM 50 Operating Height Requirement

Unread postby brugen » Sun Nov 23, 2014 8:42 am

I'm considering buying a BM 50 for use in my garage. I'll have it on a waist high work surface and I'll be using a hand hoist to lift the pipe.

To help my calculate whether I have enough head room between worksurface and garage ceiling can anyone tell me the required operating height from the base of the BM 50 to the top of the pipe handle at maximum lift.

Thanks

If you are using a hoist then I would assume that the length of the malt pipe you are using above the top of the kettle plus a bit for clearance should do the job adequately.

Thanks, Dicko.

You're absolutely right. Unfortunately the technical manual neils has posted here viewtopic.php?f=8&t=284 doesn't have any height information.

I was hoping a BM 50 user could supply it.

Thanks :beer:

Apology mate,
I should have read your post correctly :)

Someone should be able to give you the height required.....

Thanks, Dicko,

On the Speidal site I see the height of the 50 BM is is 70 cm so all I need now is the height of the pipe.

Bet you boys are worried about next summer. :D

Hi Brugen, I have recently built a stand and hoist for my BM50. Waist height (average) is quite high, if you haven't yet built the bench. My dims are:

Work stand height 750mm
BM height 700mm
Height to lift beam 1600mm (from table)
Height to bottom of pulley 1500mm " "

This setup is tight so if you have space leave more space. Please ask if you have any more questions. (There are pics under the show off post)

Hope this is helpful.

Royco,

This is very helpful indeed. I already have a worksurface built in the garage - normal kitchen unit height - which I have been using for my existing coolbox mashing approach. The BM costs enough so I doubt my wife will allow me to have that rebuilt.

After looking at your show off I realised the limitations of my thoughts. I had only thought about lifting it. Of course I also need to move either the pipe or the BM laterally. Now you've given me the dimensions I'll have a look at the best way of doing that.

Thanks

brugen.
