Topic: HX temp inconsistency> RE: thermofilters (23 lines)
1) From: Greg Scace
My experience is that temp management techniques in hx machines are 
highly variable.  for example, the thermosyphon equipped Nuova 
Simonelli Aurelia requires no temp management technique at all and 
any attempt to implement one detracts from its stellar thermal 
performance.  Home /prosumer e-61 behavior at Espressofest (SCAA 
charlotte) was highly variable.  The Andreja Premium that I tested 
was very good with minimal flushing at all.  The Elektra one group 
ran very hot, as did some other e-61s with much smaller boilers than 
the Elektras.  My Astra required a fairly long flush off of idle, but 
only a couple of seconds of flush during duty cycles less than 3 minutes.
Quickly sussing it out takes a decent measuring tool that is easy to use.
