TheProfitec Pro V2 500 PID espresso machineis a heat exchange machine with PID temperature control designed by Profitec in Germany and manufactured in Italy. The Pro 500 has a 2.1-litre stainless steel boiler, Ulka EX5 vibration pump and the E61 group head. On the V2 model, the PID has been set to 126 degrees increasing the steam pressure from 1.1 to 1.4 BAR. This new setting has re-calibrated the heat exchanger to provide brew water at 93 degrees. The result is strong steam pressure while maintaining an ideal brew temperature. The Pro 500 operates from a built-in 3-litre water tank. With the ability to make the perfect espresso and steam milk simultaneously, the Pro 500 is a compact semi-commercial machine for the home or small office.
The programmable PID behind the drip tray allows you to set the temperature/pressure of the steam boiler accurately. The PID control system pulses the boiler element to maintain the temperature within 1 degree of the set point.
E61 Group head
The E61 group head is made from 4kg of chrome-plated brass. It provides excellent thermal stability vital for great espresso. The E61 passive pre-infusion system gently infuses your ground coffee with hot water at a lower pressure allowing the coffee to expand uniformly in the basket for superior extraction.
