  • Quieter Grinder? Does it exist?

    Hi,.

    Im looking at getting a brand new commercial grinder... I was wondering what your guys recommendations are... I am wondering if you have noticed any that dont seem to make too much noise? My current grinder is so loud that it can get annoying as it is quite close to the counter and sometimes makes it hard to hear for staff.

    Thanks in advance

    It might be helpful if you tell us what your current grinder is? Then someone may be able to suggest a quieter one.

      The Robur is quiet and fast so it runs less often.

          Good morning Trizo.

          Loudness is usually associated with grinding plates becoming worn ie, it increases as the plates age & wear.

          Is most common in the smaller cafe grinders, the ones with 65mm plates.

          You replace the plates, and the level of noise decreases markedly, then increases again with wear over time.

          The idea is to upgrade to a grinder with larger plates (burrs), something along the lines of 75mm or more. These grinders deliver far more quickly, so for a given throughput they are on for less time and are therefore less noisy. Grinders with conical burrs have a similar effect as Andy stated above.

          You can also buy grinders that are purpose built to grind more quietly than a regular cafe grinder.

          The one that springs immediately to mind is the Cunil No Bel or "Silent". The motor assembly is mounted on "isolastics" and it really is a lot quieter. Nothing wrong with the grind quality of this unit but if you are going to investigate this one you would need to ascertain whether the doser assembly is up to the same standard as those of the Italian grinders.

          In addition to this advice, do not discount the importance of asking the advice of your coffee supplier.

          Hope this helps.

            Compak also produce the K6 and K8 in "Silencio" configuration. These are also a whole heap quieter than the standard issue

              I just added a sound proofing to my Coffee machine and it made the world of difference...


              Used the same product as Greg W did and placed it on those panels that were most likely to vibrate and set up standing waves...

              While I was att it I had a go at my ROCKY... Some improvement.... However most of the noise is the grinding of the beans..

              Thus

                  We have had a Mazzer Kony as our second grinder and it is very quite when compared to the Major. Quality wise, it is awesome - beyond expectations. I love the sound of the conical burrs, much better sounding than the flat burr.
