Couldn't find much about anything on this on the forum surprisingly Is it possible to replace the standard pump with a rotary pump on the Gaggia Classic? My standard one isn't that accurate / consistent so I want to upgrade.
Hello, For a sale Fluid-o-Tech Rotary Vane Pump 100L/h + RPM Motor 120W (also not-return valve is included). The pump and motor are about 3 years old and they are in excellent condition. - The motor is RPM with 120W and 230V/240V version. - Pump is Fluid-o-Tech CA104 L60mm 100L/h with connection 3/8" GAS. Price: £100 + postage with insurance (about £20)
Hi All, I have a problem with my three-year-old Quick Mill Verona insofar as the rotary pump has stalled/seized. I can hear it electrically buzzing, but there is no rotation. I'm pretty sure it's not an electrical fault but excessive scale build-up within the pump head as it is well overdue for a descale. But this creates a Catch-22 situation. I can't flush descaler through the machine if the pump won't run, so how do I get round the problem? I know I should have descaled sooner, so it's my fault it has happened... any advice gratefully received. Thanks in anticipation. In all other respects, the Verona is still superb. Tony
Looking for: SOLD Iberital IB7 1 Group Handfill Rotary Pump HX Espresso Machine in excellent condition, just two weeks old and barely used, always in a home environment. Only ever filled with Waitrose Essentials bottled water to prevent scale. These retail for around £2,200 and are fully commercial machines finished in stainless steel and black, with volumetric buttons and integrated lighting of the preparation area. They have fantastic steaming capabilities and can brew/steam simultaneously. The machine is extremely well built and very quiet with rubber mountings to reduce noise from the pump and motor to extremely low levels. A high quality adjustable Parker pressurestat allows control of the 6 litre boiler temperature band and thus brew temperature from the 1.8kW heater. It has integral boiler and brew pressure manometers. Comes complete with the usual one and two spout portafilters, single and double baskets and a blind filter for back flushing. This was intended as a temporary summer replacement for a much loved ten year old similar unit that recently died, with a view to eventually obtaining either a Londinium-R or ECM later in the year, but then came the email from Bella Barista about new stock price increases so we grabbed the last Synchronika. Hence the sale with a slightly heavy heart of a beautiful nearly new Iberital. Any questions please ask. This is a bargain and a wonderful deal for any commercial user or perhaps an enthusiast looking for a serious machine who has the room to house it and is happy to undertake the learning curve of the flushing routine that comes with one of these mighty beasts. They are easy to work on and parts are industry standard so readily available. They go on for years if looked after. Open to sensible offers. CASH ON COLLECTION ONLY PLEASE from north Oxfordshire/Bucks border - This is probably too heavy to ship safely, though open to ideas. Some technical data from the Iberital website: Adjustment of the touchpad settings. Boiler Capacity: 1GR 6L. Heating element: 1GR 1.800W. Stainless steel steam pipes. Anti-splash hot water outlet. Automatic boiler fill. Heating element protector device. Work area L.E.D lighting. Internal motor and pump. Dimensions: Iberital IB7 1GR: 445mm (Length) x 508mm (Depth) x 460mm (Height) Weight: Iberital IB7 1GR: 37 Kg The smaller photo is stock from the Iberital website to give a better view of the machine overall. Note, it does not show the handfill pipe to the rear left top. I have discussed the sale with Glenn and he is happy for it to be offered on the forums. He knows me from years back. I will leave it exclusively for sale on the forum until the end if the week to give members first chance, then will open it up elsewhere including eBay by the weekend. Now also for sale in external sites.
