Hardness - The life of your burrs is important to us, as well as using a high-quality tooling steel our burrs are also hardened.
Hardness - HV ( Vickers Pyramid Number )
Standard Steel Burrs - 800 HV
Gorilla Gear Black Burrs - 2,500 - 3,000 HV
Gorilla Gear Silver Burrs - 2,800 - 3,200 HV
Friction - Through thorough testing, we have been able to gain higher extractions and clarity in the cup through reducing surface friction. Our low friction coating is the final stage of production and also gives our burrs a stunning black finish.
Standard Steel Burrs - 0.8-1.0
Gorilla Gear Black Burrs - 0.1
Gorilla Gear Silver Burrs - 0.4
- The Gorilla Gear EK 43 burrs are to fit the Mahlkoenig EK 43 grinder - 98mm OD.
The EK 43 has been the modern go-to grinder for filter coffee & single dose espresso for a while now, Coffee pro’s have been tweaking & modifying them, painting & printing custom dials to individualise & push the boundaries of coffee brewing.
It was only a matter of time before it was taken a step further, The Gorilla Gear burrs for the EK 43 are fully machined creating an even and smooth surface from start to finish. Our EK 43 burrs have 4 pre-breaking teeth that aids in breaking down the coffee faster and easier, allowing the finishing area of the burr to deal with smaller sections of coffee and reducing the force needed to grind the coffee.
As we continue to evolve, learn and grow so will our products. We endeavour to provide the coffee industry with as much information as possible about the benefits of our products and will continue to build this library with the aim of making coffee tastier.
All Gorilla Gear burrs are pre-seasoned during the manufacturing process. Once pre-seasoned they are hardened and then treated with a low friction coating to drastically reduce surface friction. This aids in reducing equipment operating temperature, static and excessive heat.
