Premium, Stainless Steel Divided Pan
The handcrafted, mirror finish stainless steel pan is the same premium quality that we are known for. We use high grade 22ga stainless steel which enables more efficient heat transfer from the fire to the sap compared to our competitor’s thicker stainless steel. Two continuous flow dividers are formed into the structure of the pan, NOT tacked into place as an afterthought. The pan profile includes full-length handles which offers easy maneuverability and increased strength. A thermometer port with 3″ dial thermometer and a stainless steel draw-off valve are also included.

This revolutionary evaporator design is fully convertible from conventional draft to forced draft in an instant. The airtight front gives you a critical advantage in efficiency and performance whether you’re running the forced air kit or if you choose to keep things simple with natural aspiration.
The large loading door nicely compliments the large combustion chamber. This air-tight door will help prevent cold air from being pulled along the bottom of pan, negatively effecting evaporation rate and efficiency.
The Corsair arch is fully steel framed. The entire perimeter is built as strong as possible, giving you confidence when filling the pans above it with your precious liquid and igniting an intense fire inside it. Additionally, the arch fits the geometry of whatever pan set you plan to use on it, forcing the pan to take full advantage of the heat created within.
As of May 2, 2022, we are transitioning all of our Corsair Arches to include the Stainless Steel Upgrade. This feature is loved not only for its aesthetic beauty, but most important for its durability. Stainless steel resists rust and is extremely resilient in intense heat. It is guaranteed to outlive galvanized steel.
The Stainless Steel upgrade applies to the Corsair Arch Sides, Base Stack and Stack Pipe as called out in the photo below.
Insulating the Arch
Please note: The Corsair air-tight firebox door will come pre-insulated for you. The ceramic blanket, firebrick and mortar which required to insulate/protect the remainder of the arch is sold separately.
Four Reasons the Door Design is Critical
Forced Draft Kit Option
- Much higher evaporation rate compared to natural draft.
- Easier to burn larger/unseasoned wood. This means you won’t have to cut your firewood as fine and you can burn wood that is less perfect.
- Increased agility. You will be able to shut down your evaporator much faster because it allows firewood to burn quicker and more completely.
The forced draft option includes upgraded domed cast iron grates and an electric blower. If ordered at this time, the blower will come pre-mounted to the arch. Otherwise, if you order the arch as conventional draft, the back of the Corsair firebox will include a perforated knock out and mounting studs to accommodate a forced air kit in the future. If the time comes when you need more performance, just remove the knock out, mount the blower and replace the steel grates with the kit’s new perforated, domed cast iron grates.
