The L.S. Bilodeau Sweet Evaporator is the perfect size for a small or hobby maple producer. It has features usually found on larger evaporators such as flues, float box, and a front pan. The front pan allows you to reverse the direction of the syrup to help control the buildup of niter (sugar sand) on the sides of your pans.
