Hi to all. Could someone help me. I have old technosystem Italian pod machine. This is the model intended for small office use so it does not steam, only makes hot water. I would like to modify the Tecnosystem machine to steam>? Is this possible and how?

And does this machine have OPV valve so that i can regulate the pressure could someone locate it ?

Regards and tnx in advance.

Ps. great informative forum.

I like my coffee for the most of the time with hot milk so without steam is pretty much not useful. If you could explain me what to do it would be nice.

Regards.

Any luck on your conversion. I'm trying to find out if the Technosystem pod machines can be converted to normal basket types.

Have you tried a microwave and a hand frother for milk?
The thing about modding that machine is that you are adding an entire thermo control systen as well as a whole steam valve/wand system
I think most here would agree the best way to do this is not to do it rather to sell this machine and buy what you need if you can't use the microwave/frother setup.
