Fracino PID Machines

Benefiting from Fracino’s extensive research and development programme, world class engineering skills and state of the art production methods. The P.I.D. is available with 2 or 3 groups, hot water outlets fitted with anti-splash nozzles and steam tubes for frothing milk.

The Fracino P.I.D. offers an array of control and diagnostic features, allowing the user to adjust and fine tune various elements on the machine to create the perfect espresso time after time. Most of the features are controlled by a simple and easy to use LCD display mounted on the front panel.

The P.I.D. is available in a choice of gloss white, burgundy, black and stainless steel featuring an illuminated back panel.

Auto Control Features

Each group has an independent boiler for optimum temperature control – settable between 80-115°C – for example, the user can set one group to 89°C and another to 92°C, whilst still maintaining the standard boiler for water and steam.
Group Boiler Temperatures accurate to +/-1°C.
Programmable pre-infusion times.
Electronic hot water valve with programmable dispensing time – mixed hot water – temperature of water can be changed.
Programmable shot volumes and built in shot timer.
LCD display shows current group temperatures, steam boiler temperature, time, machine status/diagnostics.
Drinks counter – user can view the number of drinks made by each group.
Service timer – can program number of shots before service is required. When reached, a warning message appears in LCD.
Water volume usage – can view amount of water used.
Water filter – can program the amount of water used before filter needs replacing – a warning message appears in LCD.
