What is the difference between HX and dual boiler?
Exploring espresso machines? Understanding the difference between Heat Exchanger (HX) and Dual Boiler models is crucial. HX machines utilise a single boiler with a heat exchanger, while Dual Boiler machines boast two separate boilers. Let’s dive into the nuances to help you make an informed choice for your espresso journey.
HX (Heat Exchanger) Espresso Machine
- Single boiler that performs both brewing and steaming tasks.
- Simultaneous brewing and steaming
- Uses a heat exchanger to separate brewing and steaming temperatures.
- Requires a cooling flush to stabilise brewing temperature.
Dual Boiler Espresso Machine:
- Two separate boilers for brewing and steaming functions.
- Simultaneous brewing and steaming without temperature fluctuations.
- Offers precise control over each boiler’s temperature.
Features of the Pro 300
- Dual boiler
- Saturated brew group
- PID control
- Insulated “cold touch” steam wand and hot water tap with rotary valves
- 2.8L water tank
- Stainless steel body
- Quiet vibration pump
Everything broken down:
Dual boiler – ultimate temperature control
A dual boiler gives ultimate temperature stability, since you have two boilers, one for only brewing coffee, the other for steaming and hot water. The big advantage is that you don’t need to do a ‘cooling flush’ which you do have to do when you have a Heat Exchanger espresso machine.
Saturated brew group
The Pro 300 comes with it’s 0.4L boiler mounted right on top of the brew group. This means no temperature gets ‘lost’. Also this relatively small boiler heats up way quicker then any E61 can. One downside of this brew group is that you cannot do any flow profiling while brewing.
Insulated “cold touch” steam wand and hot water tap
Cold-touch wands empower you to concentrate fully on frothing milk, eliminating concerns about accidental burns. The incorporation of an isolating tube within a double wall of stainless steel not only enhances safety but also elevates every interaction you have with the machine.
The Pro 300 comes with a massive 2.8l water tank, ensuring you can brew many shots of coffee before running to the tap to refill the tank. Also you can choose for the direct water supply which means you don’t have to (re)fill the water tank. We recommend to outfit your machine with a (BWT) water filtration system for better tasting shots and improved machine longevity.
