Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)
Description: A study of commercial, wood-fired evaporators revealed that normal expected thermal efficiencies are between 35 and 50 percent. The moisture content and quality of wood fuels used and the design and method of firing the evaporator are critical in determining evaporator efficiency and the economic implications of using wood.
Keywords: Maple syrup production, processing, economics of processing, costs of processing
