probat burner
chimpy74
Hi guys, wondered if anyone could help me, i roast with my trusty probat lp12.
When looking through the spy hole at the burner i have noticed that some of the heights of the rows of burners are higher than others. Should they all be the same height?
Should i clean the jet assembly? Not even sure how to clean the burner assembly.
The roaster still roasts consistantly .
Any ideas anyone.

without seeing the burner it sounds like there may be some debris on the burner that is blocking some of the holes.

Do a through cleaning of the burner and burner chamber and see if this clears up the uneven heat.

Should it make a difference?

Probably not but as they say "cleanliness is next to...... (fill in the blanks with what ever fits for you)" Keeping the burner compartment clean will help you avoid flash fires should too much chaff collect in there.

I clean out the burner chamber after each roasting session. This is over kill but I have gotten into the habit of cleaning the chaff collector and burner chamber at the same time when the roaster is cold and I have the vacuum running.

I use a SF-1 so it is easy to do for me as two thumb screws removes the burner compartment side plate.

have a tankless hot water heater here on the high desert and at times really rusty water. had the same issue with the burner so I took it out and cleaned it, solved my problem.

plus got a water boss rust filter system to solve the issue from coming back, works like a charm...

Do you filter your brewing water or do you have to "purchase" water to brew with?

I am lucky in that we have exceptionally clean and decent water right out of the tap.

All I need to do is run through a particulate filter (to catch any crud from the old municipal supply) and then through a activated charcoal filter to remove the chlorine and other off taste. I know some people have had to go as far as a reverse osmosis filtration system to get decent water to brew with.

What comes out of my filtered faucet is pretty nice and pleasant to drink, brew coffee, and cook with.

Here is what I have and to do to get good filtered water for brewing coffee.

Faucet at the left in the photo (goose neck) supplies the filtered water for coffee

have the rust filter (the water boss) a whole house after that and in the kitchen under the sink is the RO that is used for drinking water and after that is the last filter to my coffee faucet only water.

your filters are TINY compared to mine...

that said, our well water is good but at times with the water table shift, it can get rusty. but with the water boss I know actually have white t-shirts...
