A happy customer
"I wanted to write a follow-up now that I have had this a couple of months and thank you for this GREAT machine. The controls are "tight" and it makes OUTSTANDING espresso (once I got past the operator limitations -- me). I am now marketing my friends to get one of these with the PID -- Thanks for making this great experience possible."
Being new to espresso, I've searched around on Home-Barista.com and CoffeeGeek.com on what is a 'PID' ... Everybody talks about it, but I couldn't find a straight answer! Thought I would be better off asking the guy that knows the best... So here is a couple of simple and maybe silly questions:
Q: So, what IS a 'PID'?
A: Straight answers are hard to find on the internets!
Just ignore the initials. It is a 'smart', highly accurate microcomputer-based temperature controller.
Q: Why would I need a 'PID' on my machine?
A: To reliably maintain the exact temperature YOU set for great and CONSISTENT espresso..
A: To reliably maintain the exact temperature YOU set for great and CONISTENT espresso.
Q: How does the 'PID' work, what kind of control/information does it give me?
A: It compares the boiler temperature against the value YOU have set, three times per second and silently feeds energy to the heating element into the boiler as needed, to maintain the exact temperature. The readout displays both the temperature you have set, and the current temperature. You may change it at any time and it will remember until YOU change it again.
Pictured is an example of our modified, brand new Rancilio Silvia, which we ship complete with PID computer temperature control. Over 1,100 (one thousand one hundred) have been shipped to date, world-wide. This enhancement delivers consistent brew water temperature control and stability that exceeds the performance of machines costing $1,000 more.
To maintain the highest quality and reliability, we do NOT offer kits of any kind.
In response to customer requests, we now offer this valuable enhancement for the Quick Mill heat exchanger machines, and many other brands, such as Dalla Corte, Expobar, Pasquini, and Bezzera. We have performed this enhancement on over three hundred HX machines.
