    Teflon

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hey,

    I have decided that Ill give my solis a good clean and a rebuild. The question is that are normal plumbing teflon tape adequate to be used on the boiler? Like when the steam valve attaches to the boiler. Not quite sure if the stuff can handle the heat and pressure or would I need locktite or some sort?

    Thanks,
    CK

    There are different types of Teflon (PTFE) tape for Gas, water etc...

    White, Yellow and Pink.. Not sure of the heat properties for all but think the Pink or white should be fine..
