The Boutelje automatic conveyor honey loosener is available in either single or dual models. A second loosener may be added to the single model at a later date if required, converting it to a dual model.
It can be mounted onto an existing conveyor, or it can be fitted between an uncapper and a horizontal extractor.
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 then delivers the frames to the honey extractors.
The system may be attached to the Boutelje 60FR honey extractor, where the sweep works together with the conveyor to transport frames into the honey extractor.

"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"
