Spin-Float Honey-Wax Separator
U.S. Patent #: 3217979
Canadian Patent #: 723027
This machine continuously separates the honey from wax, pollen and other foreign particles. It works along the same principle as the cream separator. There are no screens or perforated metal. It is made of stainless steel and is precision built. Under normal use it will last a lifetime. The only parts that can be considered expendable are the “V” belts and six bearings. Of course, these parts are readily available and easy to change.
The heart of the Spin-Float Honey-Wax Separator is the revolving drum, often called a centrifuge. In operation, the honey and cappings are pumped or dropped into the top of the centrifuge. This mixture is thrown to the outside wall where the separation takes place.
Then through a system of baffles and ports, the clear honey is drained off into the outer plastic molded tank where it is then pumped to your storage tanks. The wax is cut out by a rotary cutter and drops out of the center of the centrifuge.
The entire process is continuous. The capacity is above 3,000 pounds per hour. For best operation, the honey-wax mixture should enter at a temperature range of between 95 and 105 degrees Fahrenheit. If cooler than this, the separation is slower. Past performances in both domestic and foreign fields has proven that this machine will meet or exceed your expectations.
Advantages of the Separator:
- Negligible Honey Loss In Wax (0-2%)
- Honey-Free Wax Melts Easily
- Dry Cappings Mean Extra Honey! Clean Honey
- No Messy Job Of Dipping And Carrying Wet Cappings
- Increases Extracting Capacity
- No Discoloration Of Honey Because Of Low Temperature Needed For Clarification
- A More Professional, Sanitary Looking Operation
- Saves Time And Labor
- Eliminates Skimming Tanks
- Easy Access To Grease Bearings
