    Prior to the modern method of collecting maple sap with flexible tubing there was an earlier attempt to put plastic to use as sap collection bags. The first reusable plastic sap collection bag was invented by Everett I. Soule of the George H. Soule Company the well-known maple equipment manufacturers out of St. Albans, Vermont. A plastic tubing system operated under vacuum is usually used to collect sap from maple trees during spring time to produce maple syrup. This system is commonly sanitized with isopropyl alcohol (IPA) to remove microbial contamination colonizing the system during the sugar season.

      A good place to start is with the tanks that hold both sap and syrup. Most are stainless steel and area easy to clean with a high pressure washer. Plastic totes and poly tanks have become popular because they are relatively inexpensive but they are harder to clean.

    The problem here is that sugar maple sap will run even when its near freezing, but if the tubing has frozen sap in it, the sap stays in the tree. So as a reminder to myself and a lesson for you all, you want your taps and the tubing to be above the lateral line. So the sap drains to the barrel, not collect . Contact Us!

State and Private Forestry. Northeastern Area; Northeastern Forest Experiment Station (Radnor, Pa.)Pages: Tubing Systems. The more modern way of collecting maple sap to produce maple syrup is with tubing systems. The use of tubing has both pros and cons.

The Pros: When using tubing, do not have to empty buckets; When using tubing, can do more taps and get more sap per tap if you use vacuum; Often cheaper to set up initially than buckets; The Cons.

Converting maple sap into syrup requires removing water from the sap which concentrates the sugar into a syrup. The raw sap is boiled in pans or continuous feed evaporators where the liquid is reduced to a finished syrup of 66 to 67 percent sugar.

The use of 3/16” tubing for sap collection began as a series of experiments that I conducted while working at the University of Vermont Proctor Maple Research Center.

The goal was to devise a gravity sap collection method that would improve production for sugarmakers with small operations who typically collected much less sap than producers using vacuum pumps. Plastic tubing for collecting maple sap: a comparison of suspended vented and unvented installations.

Maple sap is a clear fluid and resembles water. The collection amount may vary. Sap is collected with tubes in large scale operations. A simple set-up uses gravity to bring the sap down the tubes, as demonstrated in this video. Cornell University's Director of the Uihlein.
