Efficiency of maple sap collection doubles using Masterflex B/T pump and FDA-approved tubing

An entrepreneur in Michigan who sells homemade maple syrup needed to increase the collection of maple tree sap because his business was growing. He was collecting the sap by manually tapping the trees and then letting it drip into buckets. This process was slow and laborious.

He called one of our Application Specialists who suggested purchasing a MASTERFLEX B/T® pump with Puri-FlexTM tubing. The pump’s motor produced a strong enough vacuum to remove the sap, allowing the entrepreneur to leave the pump running for several days at a time. The tubing meets all FDA requirements.

The MASTERFLEX B/T pump cut down on cost and labor, and doubled his production rate of maple syrup.
