Commercial coffee makers continue to be a strong market with ever increasing demand. New and improved designs have helped create niche coffee makers and coffee shops, with everyone trying to make the best cup of coffee!
Challenge: Coffee Makers are a difficult application for valves
The media is hot water and many times even steam. This requires the solenoid valve to be made from premium wetted materials to limit any possibility of corrosion. The hot water and steam also pose an issue with the plunger seal, as many elastomers can swell and restrict the flow. Many valve manufacturers can meet some of these stringent requirements, but at what cost and size?
