Raw aluminum will corrode and oxidize: irrefutable fact. Raw aluminum
immersed in water does not stay"raw" for long: another irrefutable
fact. Per this article:http://engineer.cmiwaterfront.com/whitepapers/aluminum_corrosion.pdf,
aluminum's reactiveness is what keeps corrosion from destroying the
Gaggia boilers. Aluminum pairs with oxygen to form an aluminum oxide
protective layer. This is similar to the anodizing process used in
cookware to render it immune to acidic foods.
Bottom line: As long as the water used in a Gaggia is not excessively
acidic there is no need to be concerned about the aluminum boilers.
That's the whole story, absent any of the fear mongering employed by
folks with brass/copper boiler espresso machines to sell.
LOL! I thought you were not gonna respond.
and please tell me, texxy, how people are gonna adjust the acidity of
their water for the sake of the aluminum boiler??
Isn't that a lot to expect? of course you will say no.
Yummy! aluminum oxide! black flakes!
my purpose is not to enhance my sales but HURT the sales of ALL
machines with AL boilers.
