UF

Ultrafiltration technology now found in maple production!

It has been more than 10 years since H2O Innovation use Ultrafiltration technology into the water treatment by membrane filtration market. We are definitly pioneers in introducing this technology and transposing it to the field of maple syrup production. It was in 2014 when the first UF machine got into a sugar house. As of today, we now have 3 of those operating in the maple market.

Here are some important benefits of this technology:

– Ultrafiltration allows the sap or concentrate to pass through the pores of the membrane, but it limits the passage of bacteria and suspended matter. This process thus makes it possible to purify the sap or the concentrate in order to increase the preservation time and improve the purity of the product. Currently the technology is used by producers who sell sap (around 2 Brix) for bottling, and to some customers who want to buy a concentrate of maple sap that is in between 20 and 45 Brix as a sweetening agent. Maple sugar (not evaporated in the form of concentrate) is a natural and organic sugar with a low glycemic index. Demand in the food market is very strong for natural sugar, and even more so for maple sugar.

– Many producers are selling their concentrate to companies who are using this as a sweetening agent substituting refined sugar.

– Some producers use filtered maple sap for bottling, particularly for sale of the recently popular bottled maple sap water.

H2O Innovation innovates once again and differentiates itself in 2019 with their performance oriented web interface. Producers having to watch many collecting lines at the same time will know how to appreciate the new functions inside the 2.0 web page. With classified tables each identified per station, color coded alarms will activate according to the difference in sensor readings installed at the end of your main-lines and the ones connected to your extractor. Sugar makers who own different kind of vacuum pumps, with different kinds of performance will now be able to rely on differentials oriented alarms. Cast the content of your interface on to your TV screen, you can now monitor up to 10 stations per sector, for a total of 250 sensors, all simultaneously displayed. It’s now possible to use your sugarbush map more efficiently. Just a quick glance at your monitor and you’re working in the woods again!

Testimonial from satisfied new customers

We recently received a message of appreciation from satisfied customers, we would like to share it with you all:

Hello,
We are very happy and satisfied to have chosen the H2O Innovation maple equipment for the realization of our project to build a sugar house.

We were very well advised and followed by your maple representatives Marco Leblanc and Steeve Lessard, they were both very competent and professional. We greatly appreciated their valuable advice and they took the time of teaching us to use of all the equipment, including the vacuum, the separator, the evaporator and the maple syrup press.

They are very concerned about their work and they were very generous with their time.
We had a great experience for our first sugaring season, even though the past season was not very favorable.

We will recommend your products and exemplary service with great enthusiasm!
