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 Taps||Filter Press Size|
|500 taps - 1,000 taps||7''|
|1,000 taps - 10,000 taps||10''|
|over 10,000 taps||15''|
|over 20,000 taps||20''|
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.
