The Filter-Finisher-Bottler pans are built out of 22ga mirror finish stainless steel. A Filter Tray, Cover, Drip Resistant Tomlinson Valve and 3″ Dial Thermometer are included with every unit.
Flat Filters are an enormous upgrade from cone filters. When using Flat Filters, you will have a base filter made of a thicker material called Orlon and several thinner Prefilters will be stacked on top of it. When a Prefilter clogs, shimmy it out and the syrup will flow through again. When the next filter clogs, shimmy out the next one. The Prefilter material is composite and can be reused. They rinse very well. Never just run your syrup directly into the base filter unless you have very little to filter.
The Steam Pan is an excellent way to keep syrup warm for bottling. The Steam Pan is to be filled with water and placed beneath the Filter-Finisher-Bottler Pan. The steam evenly warms the bottom of the Filter-Finisher-Bottler Pan to prevent the generation of sugar sand.
