On site PMV – (Preventative Maintenance Visit)
Under the contract, we recommend an annual planned coffee machine maintenance visit which is included in the overall preventative maintenance plan. This will entail a complete full functional test of your machine and grinder along with replacement parts and adjustments as below; Group heads cleaned, group gaskets and showers replaced, steam tap checked and washer replaced, check and adjust boiler pressure, replace boiler probe assembly, check and adjust boiler and pump pressure, coffee levels and weights from grinder, grind quality.
A preventative coffee machine maintenance plan is a very wise choice when starting a contract with us as this will ensure that the machine will be in working order for a longer period of time.
Water Filter Change – Calcium Treatment Unit
A calcium treatment unit will reduce the hardness in the water, thus preventing scale. Scale is a coffee machine’s worst enemy and should this be left unchanged; scale will build up and may end up resulting in a costly de-scale process to remove it. Additionally, a boiler inspector will not certify a machine as fit for use if there is evidence of a high scale build up.
Boiler Pressure Test – Boiler Inspection
Pressure System Safety Regulations (2000)
Your coffee machine must have an up-to-date boiler certificate. The Health & Safety at Work Act  requires that all work equipment should comply with statutory workplace regulations. To adhere to this, the coffee boiler requires a periodic examination by a qualified boiler inspector. This inspection is a requirement of the Pressure System Safety Regulations  and needs to be carried out in accordance with a “written scheme of examination”.
If you have no evidence of an inspection, an environmental officer could order you to shut down your coffee machine immediately.
