Vacuum Pumps for Maple Sugar Extraction
IS AN OIL-LUBRICATED VACUUM PUMP THE BEST DECISION?
Becker Pumps Features:
- Rated for 100% use factor
- Can be operated outdoors
- Available in single or three phase
#2 – Flow
OUR Recommendation: Oil-Lubricated Rotary Vane
Why? Vacuum Level, Pump Protection, and Better Flow Rates
Research has shown that adding vacuum to a maple tubing system can increase sap production 50% to over 200% over a maple season. The higher the vacuum pressure at the tree the greater the yield response.
Oil-Lubricated Rotary Vane Pumps Achieve 29.90″ Hg
- Includes oversized gas ballast to eliminate water vapor
- From 620 to 43,000 Taps
Oil protects pump from contaminants coming back from the process. Oil-less technologies can be susceptible to failures with any liquid ingestion.
Better Flow Rates
If your system was running at 26” Hg with an oil-lubricated pump and you replaced it with the same size oil-less pump, the vacuum level would drop to 23” Hg.
