Information Welcome! Production Welcome! Processing Reverse Osmosis Michigan Maple Syrup Association
Reverse osmosis uses a high pressure pump to force water out of the maple sap through a membrane. These units can be designed to remove up to 80% of the water (up to 14% sugar) and are a very helpful aid to the evaporator system. A smaller evaporator can be used with less time spent operating the evaporator. Reverse osmosis units operate nearly unattended, but they should be checked from time to time for filter clogging. The unit must be occasionally flushed; this can usually be done during slow times.
