    Has anyone used both a traditional filter press and a cdl (or other brand) vacuum filter? I have owned both a long and short bank Wes Fab plate press, but am intrigued by the 12" vacuum press. The...

    Back in the game.

    For those that know me on here, I have changed my mind a hundred times regarding my operation. :lol: I built up to 1000 taps on vac making 300+ gallons a year, to a major downsizing this past season...

  10. Anyone have a recent price list from A&A Metal Shop?

    I know that Andy sold the business but I believe whoever bought it is still in the same location in Ulysses, Pa? Has anyone on here dealt with them since the change in ownership?

    For several years I used an electric releaser with external Goulds pump that pumped uphill about 150 feet or so. It was a rise of about 25 feet I think.

    With my previous 2 ROs (Deer Run 375 and D&G 600), as I processed more sap and the membranes got closer to needing a wash, the pressure would climb and if I kept it going too long, the high pressure...

    I had one of Ray's 375's for a couple of years and never had a leak at the pressure hose. I did have a leak at a plastic fitting before it was ever fired up and he replaced it.
