Want an ECONOMICAL way to get started with a filter press? The Stainless Steel Filter Press by Smoky Lake Maple Products is 100% food grade stainless steel. As a hobby producer grows, this unit can expand to accommodate their growing output.
- Hand Pump (plastic) - This can be upgraded in future to the Stainless Steel Air Diaphragm Pump
- Temperature Gauge with Window Plate - Smoky Lake is the only manufacturer that offers a window plate fitted with a temperature gauge. This will tell you when the press is warmed up and the syrup coming out is hot enough for bottling.
- Short Platform (21inches long) - To order the long platform (30inch) version of the filter press, please contact us.
This unit also comes with:
- Hose Kit: 2 food grade, heat-safe, non-collapsable inlet and outlet hoses with stainless steel cam-lock fittings
- Stainless Steel Drip Tray: Keeps your workspace nice and tidy
- Rubber, non-skid feet
- Disposable Filter Papers: 6 filter papers included
Additional Product Features:
- Indisputably Food Grade: 304 Stainless Steel (Competitors use aluminum, plastic, or even brass which contains lead)
- Expandable: Add plates/capacity as your business grows.
- Positive Assembly: The hangers were designed in such a way to make it impossible to insert a plate backwards.
- Non-Tilt: Unlike many competitors, you do not need to tilt the press on end to load the filter papers.
