  • Losing steam pressure?

    Hi,
    It seems lately that I have lost some steam pressure / power on my 5 month old Diadema semi auto machine. It's taking longer to get the milk done. I always flush the water out quickly before putting the wand in the milk and I always flush steam through it when I'm done, so I don't know what the problem could be?

    What should my gauge read when I'm texturing milk? Sometimes it sits as low as 0.6 - 0.7

    thanks for any advice.

    Hi Bob,

    This often happens with many machines as users "get used to them".

    Your machine, like most will drop to approx. 0.5Bar during a 600ml milk texture event and should recover promptly once your done.

    The tip of the Diadema has 2 narrow 0.8mm holes. Older models had more like 1-1.2mm and as this is the source of restriction, I think you could safely drill the tip out a little if you choose to.

    Cheers

    Chris

      Hi Chris, thanks for the advice. I will see if I can get hold of a 1mm drill bit.

      Cheers
