          Leader MAX Evaporator Pans
          Leader MAX flue pans feature a full 11 ½” deep flue, offering
          50% more surface area, translating to higher boiling rates
          (increase of 45-50%) and better fuel usage (increased fuel
          efficiency of 20-25%.) The MAX flue pan can be used on most                        111/2" Flue Height
          existing arches with minor modifications to the flue drain pipe
          location and bricking.  Due to the overwhelming difference in
          surface area, we recommend these pans for use with high
          efficiency wood-fired arches, such as our Inferno or Vortex
          arches, or a high-efficiency gas or oil-fired arch.
