Patriot Flue Plan
Reverse Flow System
Features two floats, one for the flue pan and one for the syrup pan. This allows the ultimate in liquid level control: the flue pan can be run slightly shallower for performance and syrup quality, while the syrup pan can be run deeper for safety. All Patriot Evaporators have full-seam welded partitions, and are constructed by the industry’s finest craftsmen entirely from 20 ga. stainless steel for unsurpassed durability (we would never cut corners like others, and opt for lighter weight 22 ga.).
When the syrup compartment begins to coat up with nitre and sugar sand builds up, you will have access to two valves and a single plug, all on the outside of the evaporator. These allow you to reverse the flow within the evaporator, so that syrup can be drawn on the opposite side of the syrup pan. With a Patriot Evaporator, there is no need for messy, time-consuming pan changes during peak boiling days.
The Patriot Evaporator is also easily expandable with features like the Steam-Away, or with reverse osmosis. It can be purchased in sizes from 2 x 6 up to 6 x 16, and can be installed on any style of arch. Patriot pans come complete with all draw-off valves, float systems, syrup pan to flue pan connections, plugs, and a ceramic pan gasket.
