This is a high output direct replacement pan for the very common “Half Pint” evaporator. Measuring 24″ x 33″, the eight drop flues are stepped in 4″ from the rear of the pan so it can be set in place without modifying your arch at all.
As it is designed, the sap enters a compartment in the far rear where it is warmed to boiling temperature. From there it enters a 2′ section of drop flues where the surface for heat exchange is 450% greater than in a flat pan. The sap finishes its journey by passing through a series of two finishing compartments were it can be monitored by a thermometer and drawn off as finished syrup.
Like all of the premium equipment made by Smoky Lake, this pan is hand crafted out of 22ga mirror finish stainless steel and TIG welded with the most sanitary welding practices in the world with a variety of highly specialized tooling.
The Full Pint is equipped with a draw-off port and hanger for a float box. There is also an angled thermometer port located near the draw off fitting. Thermometers, valves and float box sold separately.
You can expect this pan to achieve 10–15+ gallons per hour of evaporation.
