The Vesuvius is a pressure profiling dual boiler gear pump driven machine produced by ACS.
This machine incorporates a choice of five different pressure profiled extractions are available via the touchpad PID interface. The user determines preinfusion time and then how extraction pressure will be managed during the shot.
The PID display shows real time temperature, pressure, water level and a host of other information. Whilst many manufacturers lock down their PIDs, this manufacturer encourages experimentation. A Vesuvius owners web forum welcomes all and is a treasure trove of great information.
