In order to provide fresh coffee, a coffee machine needs regular maintenance. There are several reasons to conduct maintenance. For example: limestone, hot water and high pressures affect the sensitive boiler and solenoid valve over time, coffee beans and ground coffee contain residues that remain in several places in the machine and which cause problems when they accumulate.
Because of the limited space in coffee machines, the boiler and solenoid valves are mostly built in behind brass, brass CV or stainless steel tubing and couplings. Bending or straining the tubing leads to damage or even causes leaks. To prevent this, traditional couplings need to be dismounted and removed together with the tubing. Mounting and dismounting the traditional couplings is very time consuming and labor-intensive in comparison with Serto’s unique radial (dis)mounting couplings.
The quality of the products in coffee machine applications is essential. The products need to be FDA approved, capable of withstanding high temperatures (90°C) and pressures up to 16 bar.
All the major manufacturers of professional coffee machines benefit by using Serto’s radial (dis)mounting unions.
Major brands like Jura, La Cimbali, Schaerer, Bremer, WMF, Melitta, Bravilor Bonamat, Animo. Mavam and many other coffee machine manufacturers already benefit from using Serto couplings. One of our newest customers, Thermoplan, equips the coffee machines for the Starbucks chain of coffee shops with Serto unions.
