Rancilio Commercial Portafilter, Single Spout

Hello, I have the Silvia with the stock PortaFilter. Will this one work on the Silvia? Also, since it is heavier will it wear out the seals on the silvia or put extra burden on the structer of the machine?

DanielCulver I believe that this will fit your machine, but perhaps someone with more experience with that particular machine will further verify this. I would like to speak to the weight question. As long as the fit is the same, the heavier brass commercial portafilter is better for your machine. The extra weight of the portafilter doesn't bear any additional stress on the group-head but instead the improved rigidity will actually reduce the stress on the group-head. The combination of brass and chrome plating reduces friction between the lugs with the group-head compared to other materials like aluminum or stainless steel. Some people pre-warm the portafilter a little with hot water and the heavier brass is more effective with this practice as well (not recommending it, just commenting on efficacy).

Hi-

I have a Rancilio Epoca that's a few years old. Will this portafilter work with it?


Thanks for your help!

mjackson ♦ Yes the portafilters will work. It certainly is a neat machine and a little different and these will work well for you.

I need a double portafilter for my FranciscFrancis X1 espresso machine. The original boiler was replaced with a brass or copper boiler. I don't recall which it is.

Will the Rancillo Commercial Portafilter fir my X1?

Thanks.

mjackson ♦ Victor,

The Rancilio will not fit your machine. I would get a Francis portafilter. You can call Empire fulfillment as they offer parts at 1-877-855-4540

The pictures of the single spout and double spout are exactly the same and both show what I think of as two spouts. What is the difference?

mjackson ♦ The pictures are the same, they should be different with the double having two spouts and the single having one. Sorry for any confusion and I will see about getting the pictures straightened and thanks for noticing.

I recently purchased on of these. The basket that i use to use with the original portafilter is now very difficult to get out of the new commercial one. Do i need a different basket?

mjackson ♦ Christian,

It should not be a concern. It should loosen up over time. You do want it to fit well and it certainly seems like it does.

There is a wire clip inside the handle and you may want to make sure that is in the handle correctly. Is the original basket you used a Rancilio

Let me know and thanks

I have the Silvia with the standard portafilter. Lately I prefer 3 shots in my latte, so I have to "waste" one shot every time I make a drink. I'm assuming the single shot portafilter would be what I need? Thanks!

ToddS You might want to use a triple shot basket in the bottomless Rancilio portafilter. It would be a lot quicker than brewing the multiple shots since you can brew three shots at once. Give us a call and the sales person can help you find the Rancilio bottomless portafilter and the Expobar triple shot filter basket, it is a very good combination.

I would like to use two portafilters one with the ese adaptor and the other a regular (does the Rancillo v3 also come with a double shot). Would I have to buy a second portafilter to not have to change out each time I wanted to use a pod? Would you recommend the upgraded Rancillo portafilter or would the standard be ok? Also, I am looking for the best price on the Rancillo Silvia v3. I would be purchasing the accessories also. Thanks

TechMilanoItalia For that machine, you would require a separate pod adapter kit which converts it for use with pods. It is not that easy to switch back-and-forth, but it can be done. You may wish to call and speak with our Sales Team for a package price on all the parts and accessories plus the machine.
