how make a cappuccino automatic for old models
Until 1994, the machines Europiccola and Professional had the steam pipe screwed directly on the steam tap body.
La Pavoni has subsequently amended the steam tap body with a automatic connexion so you can easily remove the steam pipe and insert the device for the Automatic Cappuccino.
If you want use the device for the Automatic Cappuccino and do not want to buy a new machine, you have two possibilities:
• replace the old steam tap body with a new one equipped with automatic connexion
• build it by yourself
The replacement of the steam tap body is quite expensive, since you have to buy a new steam pipe, in addition to the Automatic Cappuccino.
The construction of a device that adapts to the old steam tap body is relatively cheaper.
HOW TO DO
Place the cut point at 3.5 cm from the elbow of the pipe
Cut the pipe
Insert the pipe on the support of cappuccino and tighten the nut
Insert the body of the cappuccino and the tube silicon
unscrew the steam pipe and replace with the cappuccino automatic
