  • Brugnetti 5L boiler ????

    Hi Guys

    Time i make a effort to get this working now As my pid silvia has gone bust.

    What is the history with this brand/model & machine type
    all I know prev' owner(had small restaurant) said he bought "working" it sat for 2y before he plugged it in which tripped the breaker

    Does it look like it needs a full strip descale and clean before putting into service,

    it only cost me $35 of RTD's if its too far gone

    I would definitely seriously consider a full-restoration/strip down if I want to drink anything from it.... Boiler looks super similar to my Brugnetti Aurora lever from 1980s (so may be yours might be from around the same decade/era - a possibility but unsure). Yeah, that should be a nominal 5L boiler. I said nominal because I've measured mine it was more like 4.5L fully filled.

      I'd be expecting the worst, but hoping for the best. It needs proper attention either way, but if it's done for a few hundy it's money well spent.
