This gasket is made from heat resistant silicone, which lasts longer and does not go hard like the standard rubber seals – this makes a big difference in busy environment.
Better than rubber gaskets, since silicone doesn’t have any smell or taste and are easy to change in and out.
The light colour helps with to detect if there is a build up of coffee debris.
8.5 mm thickness ensures that portafilter faces the 6 o clock position – useful if machine is more that 2 years old.
Easy to install – just push on and lock with portafilter.
Fits models :
Rancilio: 6, 6 AL, 7, 7 AL, 8, 9, 10, 11 and Promac Club
Material: Food grade FDA silicone
We recommend that you always keep spare gaskets.
If you notice that there’s water leaking from the area above the portafilter, known as the group head, then your gasket is probably to blame.When changed your coffee cream will improve as you will have achieved the maximum extraction pressure of 9 bars. (The pressure will be constant as the filter basket has a full seal.)
You should change your gaskets every 6 months, 12 months at the latest.
The longer you leave it the more difficult it will be to remove them.The group seals become brittle over time due heat from the portafilter and with age.When removing the old one it will probably fall apart as it will be so brittle.
