Honey packers managing to liquify their honey use this auger to crush and liquify crystalised honey .
When the drums have closed top with bung entry they cut the lids off with a special opener that keeps the honey free from contamination.
From crushing to full melting with a plate heat exchanger less than two points of HMF are added, compared to values of over ten when a hot air hotroom melting method is used.
"The autumn after building my bee shed, I began talking to Peter Boutelje about my options for a cost effective, yet efficient plant for a smaller beekeeping operation. The knowledge and experience Peter and his staff have of engineering honey equipment is invaluable, and his willingness to find a good solution for my business was greatly appreciated. After my first thirty tons extracted through Boutelje's Small Extraction System, I can say with great conviction that it is reliable, simple to use, maintain and clean, and is built to last. The jewel in the crown of the system is the filter centrifuge. For a system only running a centrifuge to clean the honey, it comes out at an excellent standard for bulk honey. It is also very quick and easy to start, stop and clean. After the maiden run, I was operating without a hitch. Simple as that. Alex Reekers Heritage Valley Honey Limited"
