This machine enables you to separate wax from the honey and the honey from the wax, to produce dry shavings and clean honey.
Wax/Honey Centrfuges give you the driest wax of all machines- you can see how much money gets lost when you calculate your cappings honey waste - it is HUGE
It is suitable for all honey types including Manuka honey.
Cappings are collected in an auger situated below the uncapping machine.
Honey from the honey extractors is pumped into the auger where it is mixed.
The slurry is pumped through the heat exchanger - to heat it to about 36-38 degrees - after which it is fed into the centrifuge.
(It is important that a high quality heat exchanger is used in order to heat the honey evenly. This minimises the chance of soft wax blocking the crust).
The wax is lighter and accumulates in a crust on the inside surface of a mass of spinning honey, whereas the wax-free honey flows down the inner side of the rotor and though a gap to other side of a baffle plate.
The wax is shaved off with powered cutters and drops down into a container, whilst the honey is flung out by the thrower tubes against the inside wall of the outer tank.
The honey is pumped away directly, or via a sump to your bulk holding tanks.
"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. "
