USE OF THE BRODIE REGISTER ON ROTOCYCLE
Brewers and others concerned:
Purpose. This circular is issued to inform you that a
Revenue Procedure has been approved that authorizes the use by
brewers of the Brodie register on Rotocycle beer meters.
Background. Revenue Procedure 60-30 (C.B. 1960-2, 1008),
the publication of which was announced in Industry Circular No.
60-35, approved the 2BL and 3BL Rotocycle Beer Meters for use by
brewers in measuring beer to be racked or transferred to the brewery
bottling house. At that time, these meters were equipped with the
same type registers as approved piston-type meters. The manufacturer
of Rotocycle meters is now manufacturing the Brodie register and
considers it better suited for use on those meters. A series of
tests under actual operating conditions indicates that the Brodie
register is an improvement and, accordingly, it is approved for
use as indicated below.
Use of Brodie register. The Brodie register, Series 22265,
equipped with an anti-reversing device, is approved for use by
brewers on Rotocycle beer meters only, manufactured by the
Rockwell Manufacturing Company, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Inquiries. Inquiries regarding this Industry Circular should
refer to its number and be addressed to your Assistant Regional
Commissioner, Alcohol and Tobacco Tax.
