How Big a Filter Press Do I Need?

Posted by FAQ Squad on Apr 7th 2023

We recommend the following filter press sizes for your maple sugaring operation, depending on how many taps you have. 

Number of TapsFilter Press Size
500 taps - 1,000 taps7''
1,000 taps - 10,000 taps10''
over 10,000 taps15''
over 20,000 taps20''

Usually, folks will have around 500 - 1,000 taps. A 7'' filter press will work great for that. If you're operating around 20,000 taps, it's good to have a 20'' filter press to accommodate the large amounts of syrup you'll be producing.
