Exciting new La Pav temperature stability mod!


Recommended Posts

I just recently joined the La Pavoni Lever Machine Owners Facebook page. Some new developments were there that I hadn't seen before.

One involved the pre-millenniums adding a plug behind the group head and cutting a hole in the dipper tube to make the group head water heated instead of steam heated.

As a side note....IMS SCREENS AND BASKETS FOR LA PAV! YAY!

good find - but I'm not exactly sure why this mod would bring hot water into the group to heat it in a way that was different to the standard dipper tube, I'm guessing its because it has a bigger exit route and the pipe extends further?

 

the solution they use would be neater and easier if they used a small threaded copper tube inserted into the inner face of the syphon -

 

its got me thinking anyway!

all opinions are my own I have not received any free equipment or favours from suppliers
