    Introduction In the late 's and early 's, maple syrup pro- ducers began using plastic tubing to collect maple sap for processing into maple syrup. At first, tubing was thought to be an easy solution to the high cost of col- lecting maple sap.

Maple syrup is a natural forest food product and, for the most part, only produced in temperate North American woodlands. More specifically, the sugary sap is mostly collected from the sugar maple (Acer saccharum) which grows naturally in the northeastern United States and eastern Canada. Other maple species that can be "tapped" are red and Norway maple.

Vacuum is used in many modern tubing installations, with a pump evacuating the tubing system to a level of 20–25 in. mercury (in Hg). By applying vacuum to the tubing network, the pressure gradient between the inside of the stem and the ambient air inside the tubing increases, resulting in a much higher sap flow rate and sap by:

I am a small time operation with a drop flue 2x6 all my taps are on buckets. I purchase some sap from a local guy who attended this years Maple Conference in Verona this year. he sat in on the sap buying/selling class. According to him the presenter told everyone that all of the sap buyers should be paying the suppliers a 50/50 split on what is produced from his sap.

Plastic Tubing/Pipeline Systems for Collecting Maple Sap Collecting the sap from a maple tree is very labor intensive and can be difficult based on weather conditions during the season. A collection system built with plastic tubing running from tree to tree can reduce labor costs and increase profitability.

I hang buckets on 5/16 blue spiles and 7/16 cast aluminum spiles. The spiles are $2-$3 a piece. I was wondering if there are any members (who also use buckets on gravity) who replace similar spiles each year to eliminate the issue of bacteria build-up.

I diligently wash and disinfect all of my spiles at the end of the season, but from what I've read on here, that doesn't get rid of all of the.

on production (Figure 2). Although a variety of producer practices (vacuum level, taphole sanitation, size of operation, etc.) undoubtedly complicates any relationship between yield and cleaning, an analysis of variance revealed no significant effect of tubing cleaning method on sap yield.

To quote Stephen Childs NY State Maple Specialist “in a 3/16 maple tubing system, the weight of the sap below the tap, determines the vacuum level at the tap”. A standard gravity 3/16 system is comprised of 20 to 30 taps extending down a slope to a collector line.

In the Cornell Maple Program replicated tubing system sap flow trials, one of the first systems to stop running was the second year 5/16” laterals, drops and spouts with four replications.

In this treatment nothing had been changed since its use in the sap season other than being vacuumed dry at the end of the sap season. Kim explains how to attach spiles and fittings to 3/16 maple sap collection tubing using hot water and and then a tool.
