Filter Press for Maple Syrup
Filters the cleanest & the clearest with the least amount of effort, in the shortest amount of time, for increased quality. This quick-action press filters hot syrup right off the evaporator at the rate of 2 gallons per minute before the syrup has a chance to cool. This speedy process virtually eliminates reheating for the canning process.
The filter press eliminates the frustrating labor involved in felt filtering. Using 16 papers (7 square) and Filter Aid, an electric motor operated gear pump pushes the hot syrup through the filter- then moves it to any height. Saves time changing and cleaning felt filters; get 60 on one set of papers.
The filter press is a must for sugar makers who pack in glass because other methods don"t filter as clear.
