Dual Fuel Espresso Machines

Dual Fuel Espresso Machines

The Fracino 1, 2 and 3 group Contempo and Retro coffee machines are also available as a dual fuel option. With the same great specification as our standard 1, 2 and 3 group machines, but with the option to use LPG, Butane or electricity, they provide unrivaled flexibility and mobility whilst still retaining high volume output. These machines are ideal for mobile catering units and ‘espresso on the go’.

The high powered gas burners for these machines provide the equivalent power of their electric counterparts, ensuring that there will be no loss of steam pressure during busy serving periods. Fracino are proud to claim that their gas machines are the most powerful in the world.

installation requirements

* Note: The installed gas supply system must comply with the Gas Safety Regulations and be certified by a COMCAT registered engineer.

 

1. The Rotary Pump is supplied as standard with the Coffee Machine.

2. All items shown can be purchased from Fracino. The following which need to be purchased locally:

 

  • High-Pressure Hose attached after 1/4″ Fulham nozzle.
  • Pressure Regulator and Gas Bottle.
  • Fresh Water Tank.

 

3. The Flojet Pump and Fresh Water Tank can be replaced by a fixed tank in the vehicle. This tank would require an external 1.5 bar pump.

4. The 12v battery can either be the vehicle battery or a slave battery. We recommend Lucas sealed rechargeable LSLG 104 ah 12v gel battery.
