    From what I could find looking online the liners are available separate. But there are caps that come with the induction liner as well but not in all sizes. The ones that fit my bottles are 31.5....

    When I used them I turned them inside out and washed them with warm water.
    Then brought a pot of water to a boil and let it sit in boiling water for 10 minutes or so.
    Then hang to dry.

    If your building a single 4x40 membrane RO. The flowmeter or technical name “ rotometer” you’ll need is a 1/2” 0.5-5 gpm for concentrate or a 1-10 if you choose. Only time I ever hit 5 or above is...

    I tried a cheap flowmeter as a replacement for one of mine that cracked. You get what you pay for. It did not read properly and leaked like crazy.
    I'd get a good flowmeter. They are pretty...

    The silicone was what I had. The probe is the exact same as the CDL modulating drawoff probe. Not a cheap Chinese braided stainless probe. Was around $160. Better last.

    I got 3 years out of my probe from Auber Instruments. My fault though. When I took it out to clean it I would always thread it out and not use the compression fitting and slide it out. So I had a...

    All depends really on if you are using buckets or tubing. If full vacuum setup you are basically leasing the land. So I’ve seen prices at 4$ per tap and higher and as low as 2$ per tap. I looked...

    Yes. Almost exact.
    I put longer copper lines on mine and bent them upwards so they were higher then the oil level in the reclaimer. Had oil draining into pump with them lower.
    But same setup...

    Don’t think it’s 30 CFM. 30 was the head it could handle as a dairy pump. Don’t quote me on that though.
    765 RPM is the pump specs I have that. So it will be 2:1 or less with a 1725 motor.

    I was able to find the RPM specs for the Pump. ( 765 rpm) But not the HP needed.

    As long as you have the u-cup oring on the feed side of the membrane you can orientate the housing whatever way you want.

    Yes I have a moisture trap but it’s more like a sap trap. I’m sure vapor still enters the pump. But it will stop sap from entering. It’s the CDL ABS trap with the ball inside. It has saved my A$$ a...

    The nice thing about a recirc line with a needle valve is you can close it if you don’t like it or want to use it.
    Like I said. I’ve recirc’d sap back into the tank before but I’ve had way better...

    Same style. I have a 1-10 gpm for my recirc. Could probley get away with a smaller one say 1-5 gpm flow meter. But sometimes I run it wide open and it will go to 8 gpm. But 5 seems to work the best...

    This method works as well. I’ve used it before to achieve higher concentration. But it takes a long time. You are constantly adding concentrated sap to fresh sap. Then sending it through RO again. ...

    A separate flow meter. A flow meter on recirc line is not necessary. But it’s nice to have. Your concentrate flow meter is for concentrate out. Meaning concentrate being sent to head tank to boil.

    Put a tee right before your concentrate needle valve. Run the recirc to a separate needle valve. Then to a flow meter. Then to the intake of your High pressure pump.

    I’ve got an accumulator tank I could use. Thought about it this year. But decided not to lug it down to the bush.
    Does it just go inline between the pump and releaser ? No check valves needed?...

    No. It will be fine. I have a 3/4 feed line on my membrane now. But had a 1/2 line before with a reducer at the membrane cap. No problems at all.
