For Rancilio users, may we recommend upgrading to the new version valve assembly? It is a semi-challenging remove and replace procedure, but the parts for the old version are slowly being phased out anyway, so...
Steam wand replacement for old Rancilio Silvia espresso machines. For Rancilio users this may require two o-rings that are not included. The threads on the tip of this wand are quite coarse, and the tip may need to be gently tightened after transport (take great care to not over tighten). Due to the nature of the threads on the steam wand, a small amount of condensation can escape from the side of the steam tip when the steam is engaged. This will in no way affect milk frothing.
Although we are aware of people using the Rancilio Silvia steam wand (our item R_1054) for retro-fitting the wand in the Gaggia units, working primarily with commercial cafe equipment, it's not something we have any experience with, and so cannot make any technical recommendations on any retro-fit.
