Becker Pumps Features:

  • Rated for 100% use factor
  • Can be operated outdoors
  • Available in single or three phase

What Needs to be Considered

#1 – Vacuum Level

“The higher the vacuum level is, the greater the yield of sap.”

#2 – Flow

OUR Recommendation: Oil-Lubricated Rotary Vane

Why? Vacuum Level, Pump Protection, and Better Flow Rates

Vacuum Level

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

Pump Protection

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.
