RANCILIO SPECIALTY RS1 – VARIABLE STEAM LEVER
One the most practical innovations for baristas is the lever actuated steam control, which allows for variable steam pressure delivery with 2 programmable positions on each side. This gives baristas the ability to dial in the best steam flowrate and facilitates moving seamlessly between larger and smaller steaming pitchers, as well as different types of milk.
Using a proportional valve to control delivery, steam pressure can be dialed in to be anywhere between 5 – 100% of boiler pressure for each lever setting for a total of 4 independent settings. No longer will baristas need to juggle between steam tips and boiler pressure settings to lock in the perfect steaming environment for each drink. This gives the RS1 the versatility that is demanded of a fast paced, high quality coffee program with specific execution for specialty coffee. In addition, the ergonomic cool touch steam wands have been designed to minimise water condensation and facilitate cleaning operations.
