PID Kit For Rancilio Silvia

Sold out

This PID kit from Auber Instruments will drastically improve the temperature stability of your Rancilio Silvia while also allowing you to adjust the brew temperatures.

Brew temperature: The brew temperature is originally controlled by a bi-metal contact thermostat, which causes a big temperature swing. This PID controller kit replaces the function of the thermostat and, once installed, the standby brew water temperature can be controlled to within ±1°C accuracy significantly improving the taste and consistency of your espresso. Users can see the boiler temperature on the PID controller directly and adjust the brew water temperature to suit their own tastes.


  • Monitor and display the boiler temperature precisely. 
  • Regulate the coffee water temperature to within ±1°C accuracy.
  • Allow easy adjustment on the coffee water temperature. 
  • Greatly improved the taste and the consistency of brewed espresso shot. 
  • All buttons on the Silvia machine function the same way as they were. 
  • The kit includes all the parts needed and is fully reversible.

The interface, order/purchase and delivery of the product was perfect, but regrettably my inexperience with the world of PIDs is limited and in a moment of product overload selected the wrong unit unknowingly. The product I received is exactly as advertised, but I wish I hadn’t made the mistake. If I could go back in time I would have without question gone with the higher end unit.
