Silverplate Support Articles

The Silverplate Evaporator is a tested and proven design built by Smoky Lake Maple Products, LLC of Hilbert, Wisconsin. The fully insulated, airtight, stainless steel arch makes good use of the high efficiency pans that Smoky Lake is known for.

Why an airtight arch?

An airtight door with dual-point latch system ensures that no cold air will be pulled into the arch, which would then be pulled across the floor of the pans, negatively affecting evaporation rates. Also, with the amount of air being forced into the combustion chamber from the built-in blowers, the airtight door keeps the operator safe from sparks and embers.

Why stainless steel arch sides?

Stainless steel adds both beauty and longevity to your investment. Stainless steel is resistant to rust and can withstand extreme heat far better than any galvanized steel.

Why domed cast iron grates?

All Silverplate evaporators include high performance blowers and therefore they are equipped with specialized cast iron grates to optimize the air flow. Cast iron, as a material, does not have a fiber body. Therefore when heated it has no tendency to warp. The perforations are placed in a way to create the most turbulence within the firebox. Remember the 3 “T”s of combustion: Time, Temperature and TURBULENCE.


Popular Sizes Actual Footprint Size of Firebox
2′ x 6′ 25-1/2″ x 7′ 5″ 2′ x 30″
2′ x 8′ 25-1/2″ x 9′ 5″ 2′ x 30″

30″ x 10′ 31-1/2″ x 11′ 5″ 30″ x 36″

NOTE: The “Popular Sizes” listed above refer to the pan size that each arch is designed for. For example, our 2′ x 6′ Silverplate Arch accommodates a 2′ x 6′ pan, but its actual width x length (footprint) is 25-1/2″ x 7’5″. All Silverplate arches stand 34″ tall.

  1. Jason Klous

    Smoky Lake fabricated a 3×10 complete system for me in 2017. It performed flawlessly and the quality and workmanship is amazing. Jim and his team did an awesome job and provided a lot of support during my set-up and my first boil. I am extremely happy and Smoky Lake is an amazing company.

  2. Brett D Zacho

    We bought the 2×6 model four years ago and have been extremely happy with the productivity, workmanship and support. Last year, during the height of the season, I screwed up and ruined my cross flow pan. I called SL and they welded a replacement pan in 2 days for me and saved my season. We now own a SL water jacket bottler and finishing pan also. We cannot say enough good things about Smoky Lake Maple products or their people.
