  • Wet steam

    Howdy all,
    I have a simple (hoepfully) question about steam.
    I am refering to my Giotto premium at this point, but this pertains to any machine with a boiler, so I put it in this thread rather than a specific machine type thread.
    The question is, how do you know when your steam is too wet?
    Is it a visual thing, or is there a measurement that one can do?
    Is it determined by performance whilst steaming, or is there some other way of finding out?
    Thanks in advance,
    Steve.

    Hi lovey,

    The moisture content of steam will be influenced by boiler pressure and capacity, boiler probe height and other factors such as wand and steam valve anatomy.

    Giotto steam can sometimes appear a little damp as the wand is lined to make it cool touch. This leads to a little condensation in the steam pathway.

    Our GP thermostability upgrade allows a higher boiler pressure without adversely influencing group temperature. Amongst the bonuses are more and drier steam.

      Steve;

      Could be at simple that your level probe regulator is dirty and not given the right stop signal to the board. This I will call boiler over filling a bit.

      All what you need to do is clean the level regulator with a sand paper. Give the try and see what happen.

      Other wise your closer technician will be Graham from Euro Coffee & Appliances.

      Good luck mate
