Key Technologies


 

Commercial Group Head

group_head

 

The thermally balanced commercial group heads provide the thermal stability vital for great espresso.  The pre-infusion system gently infuses your ground coffee with hot water at a lower pressure allowing the coffee to expand uniformly in the basket for superior coffee extraction.


Thermosyphon System

Thermosyphon_system

 

The thermosyphon system automatically circulates hot water through the group head while the machine is idle.  Hot water flows from the heat exchanger into the group head through the upper pipe.  As heat is transferred to the group head the water cools and leaves the group head through the lower pipe.  Here the water combines with cold water from the pump and flows into the bottom of the heat exchanger.  The continuous movement of hot water maintains the group head at a stable temperature vital for producing consistently great espresso.

 


Rotary vane PumpRotary_vane_pump

 

The whisper quite rotary vane pump delivers pressurised water to the heat exchange boiler.  As well as being almost silent rotary pumps have a longer service life than vibration pumps.


Over Pressure Valve

Over pressure valve

 

A OPV (Over pressure valve) limits the group head pressure to 9 bar for optimal extraction.


No Burn Steam Wands

Steam_wand

 

The steam wands produces powerful dry steam ideal for texturing milk.  The ball joint connection allows perfect positioning of the steam wand.  The commercial soft close valve provides easy steam pressure control with minimal wear.  Cool touch technology makes the wand easier to handle and easier to clean as milk is less likely to bake on.
