This is the original Gaggia OPV as fitted to the Gaggia Classic Pro (and various other models, including the Classic V2 / RI9403) globally. It screws onto the top of the pump and is factory specified at approximately 11-12bar of pressure.
When fitting a new OPV the (pink/red/orange) braided pump-to-boiler pipe must be removed from the black plastic nipple, and reattached to your new OPV with a "one time use" Oetiker clamp. Finding and obtaining these clamps isn't a simple process usually - so we help and include two within this package (you'll need one, and then have one spare just-in-case). The clamps are tightened using a special tool, or we find that a pare of pliers/wire cutters works just as well. You can find more information on fitting oetiker clamps on YouTube.
NOTE: If you've broken an existing valve and you're just looking for a replacement, then you can buy our cheaper steel version here - which is identical to this one except for the spring and the metal (it's steel rather than brass):
This package contains:
- Gaggia OPV / 11 bar Safety Valve
- Two oetiker style clamps
