Product Range / Complete Systems / Large System

We manufacture large systems that can extract up to 60 boxes/hr. If we include a mirrored system with common box feeds we are able to extract up to 120 boxes per hour

They can either be labour intensive with three or four people or we can offer various levels of automation to reduce labour requirements down to two people. (The 120 box per hour system would require extra staff)

We like to offer systems that can be automated in steps. A large system from Boutelje Products will look something like this:

  • Boxes are manually cleaned, sorted and loaded onto our box handling conveyor. We can provide lifting devices to help operators.
  • Bar code scanning or Radio Frequency (RF) readers if needed can be used in conjunction with the box conveyor - automatic.
  • Scales can be incorporated into the box conveyor - automatic
  • Boutelje deboxer - deboxes and sweeps frames onto uncapper (or direct onto the loosener infeed) - automatic
  • Empty boxes are swept off onto an idler roller conveyor - automatic
  • Dual Automatic looseners loosen at 10 frames per minute
  • Three 36FS , 32 FS or 24FS Boutelje or horizontal honey extractors are loaded by the operators.
  • Heat exchangers warm the honey
  • Auger mixes and chops the cappings and honey
  • Centrifuges - either wax/honey centrifuge (spinfloat) or Filter centrifuge
  • Bulk blending/storage tanks
  • Platform scales with filling arm and nozzle

We can add pasteurisers to operate inline that keep up with the extraction as well as reduce moisture in the honey.


Depending on your future or present processing requirements we will work with you to design a system that meets your criteria.

"We bought an automatic honey loosener two years ago and have had very few problems and if there are any issues or tweaks that need to be done Peter Boutelje's team are very helpful to talk us through it. The yearly service that they do on the machine gives you peace of mind for the up and coming season. Thank you for the excellent service. "
