This is the Richard Penney design pressure gauge adapter specifically
for adding a gauge to a La Pavoni Europiccola espresso machine.
Teflon sealing washer included for the bottom of the adapter...your
gauge is sealed on the adapter with Teflon tape (not included) which is
applied in varying thicknesses to achieve the orientation of the gauge
that you desire.
There is a lot of confusion and misinformation
about these adapters - MEASURE your machine's fitting to be sure which
you need - the fitting uses a 12mm thread. The top housing cap screw thread will measure slightly less than 12mm.
A rule of thumb, generally, the Pre-Millenium machines and SOME of
the Millenium machines will
use an 12mm adapter - there ARE exceptions! There are transition
machines which may not follow this general rule of thumb - Measure the
cap screw thread of your machine!
We offer these adapters in stainless steel .
THE LARGE THREAD ADAPTER FITS THE LARGER 12mm FITTINGS - Be SURE of the size you need!
This is the full setup including economy 2 bar gauge and adapter.
kit will give you an instant upgrade to your Europiccola.....Richard
Penny Manometer adapter fitting and 2 bar pressure gauge. The gauge
is a generic black bodied gauge, 1 1/2 inches in diameter with a glass lens.
