La Pavoni Custom Made Brass Sleeve Jacket is specially created for the NEW GEN / Post Mill / Big GH La Pavoni EP / Pro coffee machines.
The sleeves have been testing brass and stainless steel, with very little differences between the two materials.
We offer both materials just because usually there is also a personal taste involving this purchase.
When we created a poll, some wanted brass and some wanted stainless steel. So there you have it !
It replaces the old and problematic plastic sleeves from inside your coffee machine.
Coffee Sensor has the Motto “no more plastic inside La Pavoni”. That why we created this sleeve but also the metallic boiler water pipe connector and so on.
With the help of a very special group of coffee enthusiastic people, we researched and still do, LP’s problems and try to find the best solutions.
So we came up with this new and improved product for your La Pavoni.
La Pavoni Custom Made Brass Sleeve Jacket does not solve the overheating problem that can occure inside the Post Millenium coffee machines, but rather offers a much better temp surfing and recovery time.
The water flows and gets inside the coffee puck with the help of our single hole system. The sleeve are drilled once, not two or three times like other manufacturers thought about.
Also, the hole is not made randomly, rather specially marked place, where it should flow from the boiler, round the sleeve and only then getting inside.
This helps the water travel much more than usual, to the opposite side of entrance, helping the water cool down a little bit and stabilize the temps more and much better before the coffee extraction.
We do not offer a gasket, but you can purchase a new one right HERE – CLICK TO VIEW.
We strongly suggest you replace the old o ring with this occasion.
Also if you need a sleeve removal tool, we made one specially for this operation, and you can purchase that right HERE – CLICK TO VIEW.
SPECIAL NOTES FROM US:
The sleeve body is made using a modern CNC machine.
After this step, each and every sleeve is hand made to perfection.
We need to make a sign for the hole, drill it of course, sand paper the inside of the sleeve to get the waist out so that it will not interfere with the piston gaskets and so on.
Also, sometimes we need to make some parts / zones wider or narrower, polish and such.
This is why you will see on the sleeves some small signs of handcraft processes.
The metal sleeves will never get inside the group head as easy as a plastic part.
It’s best to LUBRICATE THE SLEEVE GASKET ON THE OUTSIDE before inserting it inside the GH.
Also, make sure the angle of the metal sleeve’s thread and the angle of the GH’s inside thread are PERFECTLY aligned, so that there will be no thread modified / tear apart when screwing the sleeve.
We recommend using our tool for the entire operation, simply because its much easier to remove the old sleeve and get the new metal one inside, without much trouble.
Pay attention to the alignment. It’s very important.
If you feel you cannot control the entire removal and insertion processes, please apply for professional services.
