Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs) on Maple Sap Vacuum Pumps
Many maple sugaring operations run sap vacuum pumps 24 hours per day during the sugaring season.
One way to minimize the pump’s electrical use is by adding a VFD control system. The controller can then adjust the pump motor speed according to the load.
