la Pavoni pressure

Recommended Posts

Just fitted a gauge to my La Pavoni and it's showing that the pressure stat is cycling at 11-12 psi.


Is this the correct pressure?


Am I correct in thinking that this means the water temp is 115 degrees C?


depends on year ?


0.8 bar = 11.6 psi

0.7 bar = 10.15 psi


0.8 - 1.0 Bar then 0.7- 0.8 from 96 onwards


temp wise at 0.8 bar mine will hit 90-95 deg after about 10-15 min with the false pressure being bled


best bet is to get some temp strips for the grouphead from orphan espresso or amazon

It's a 2002.


I going to put some thermocouples on to see what temps do in the boiler, basket and outside the group.


Did you put a thermocouple on? If so which ones did you use as I too have thought of doing that.
