Cafelat Silicone E61 Group Head Gasket 8.5mm - Blue

Regular price
£2.49
Regular price
Sale price
£2.49

Cafelat's own group gaskets made from food grade FDA silicone. Unlike regular gaskets that are made from rubber these do not have any smell or taste whatsoever, and are easy to change since they will not bake rock hard like rubber does. If you have ever struggled to change an old gasket you cannot help but notice the awful smell and the black soot that comes off the rubber. And that is what you are potentially consuming with each drink.

Cafelat have spent months testing and adjusting the material so that these have the same compression strength as rubber, but are also softer so that it is easier to create a good seal.

8mm will fit ECM, PROFITEC, LELIT AND EXPOBAR machines.
8.5mm will fit ROCKET and IZZO machines, Lelit Mara and MaraX.

 

Bella Barista Warranty

All parts and accessories are a standard 12 month warranty.

    Overview

    Cafelat's own group gaskets made from food grade FDA silicone.

    Cafelat have found that the replica E61 groups made these days are pretty much all the same, the different machine manufacturers then use either an 8mm or an 8.5mm group gasket. <p>

    Fit the following machines:<p>

    All E61 Modern Replica groups such as: Isomac, ECM, ECM Germany, QuickMill, Rocket, MyWay, BFC, VBM etc…But you need to know which thickness you require i.e. 8mm or 8.5mm since machine manufacturers choose their own thickness. <p>

    What is the difference between 8mm and 8.5mm? <p>
    The thickness of the gasket will determine the “lock-in” position of the portafilter handle. Ideally you want the handle to lock in directly towards you (6 o’clock position). If the gasket is too thin it will lock in too far. If the gasket is too thick it will not lock in enough. 8mm will fit ECM, PROFITEC, LELIT AND EXPOBAR machines.
    8.5mm will fit ROCKET and IZZO machines, Lelit Mara and MaraX.
