    Hi rudebutt1,

    You are describing two dramatically different machines here.

    The Silvia is a dual purpose single boiler machine - like your machine and the Bezzera is an example of a heat exchanger espresso machine- where you can pull a shot and texture milk simultaneously . A little googling will provide you with further explanation if required...

    regards

    Chris

    Rudebutt1,

    The may differences are as follow
    Rancilio Silvia
    Single Boiler (300ml)
    Coffee first change to Steam
    Water tank 3 lt ( not automatic cutout)
    Fill boiler manually

    Bezzera BZ99S
    Heat Exchange (1.5)
    Can make coffee and Steam at the same time
    Water tank 4 Lt (Automatic cutout when water level is to low)
    Automatic refill for the Boiler level
    Two handles (single and double)

    Feel free to cantact m,e directly fro more information

    ok , thanks for that.
    i think what confused me is the boiler ... many sites describe the bezzera + silvia as having different size boilers , didnt realize that a HX is a boiler with 2 elements etc ...

    hi rudebutt1
    h
    ink what confused me is the boiler ... many sites describe the bezzera + silvia as having different size boilers , didnt realize that a HX is a boiler with 2 elements etc ...
    hx machines can have 1, 2, or more elements the bz has 1

    this diagram shows a breakdown of a hx boiler with a e61 group
