The Boutelje dual automatic conveyor honey loosener is either supplied as a dual head loosener, or you can upgrade an automatic single head loosener.
It can be spliced into your extraction line or it can be fitted to an existing conveyor - we supply loosening head, controls and brackets if a beekeeper has a conveyor and no space to add a complete machine. The loosener uncaps up the missed cappings, but can also be by passed.
Frames are loaded onto the conveyor (by hand or via an uncapping machine), and queue at a pick-up point from where they are automatically loosened and returned to the conveyor. The conveyor delivers the frames to the honey extractors.
The system may be attached to the Boutelje 60FR horizontal radial honey extractor, where the sweep works together with the conveyor to transport frames into the honey extractor.

"When it came time to set-up our own extraction room, we utilized Boutelje equipment. Peter was able to give us good advice on a cost effective solution to support our current volume, as well as plan for future expansion. We went from first equipment delivery to signed off RMP in 20 days, quick turnaround on support requests during our early days was crucial to our success. "
