    Re: Melting/Heating drums

    Thats almost exactly what i use. Heat tape self regulates to 118 F. 25-30 feet liquifies a drum in 2-3 days.

    Re: Maxant 7000 Spin Thru

    Maxant, i have been unable to identify how the 7000 works. I see in some places that the wax collects on a perferated screen, but on you website it says the wax collects on the honey, and the honey...

    Re: How many Hives???

    This interests me. We have miles of alfalfa that is just starting to bloom after the first and only cut. I have been praying for rain, as we haven't had any in a month but perhaps its for the best....

    Re: Question on adding supers

    If they dont cut the flowering alfalfa, the flow should continue till first frost. Sounds normal compared to my experience with 2lb packages. Alfalfa is a very good nectar source once the bees build...

    Re: Using a Fume board with excluders on...

    Although I do find excluders a challenge to remove the last box, i cant imagine using fume boards without an excluder. Any brood in the top boxes grinds bee movement to a halt. It would be a waste...
  13. Re: When replacing brood frames with wax foundation after splits

    On 50-60 hives this year I have checker boarded in 3 frames of foundation into my singles, pulling the brood above the excluder to coax them into the second box.
    It has worked better than i hoped or...

    Re: Heat exchanger temp setting

    I don't have a honey exchanger, but I suspect one of two causes. Either the dial is out of calibration (likely a set screw holds it in place), or the dial controls the heat medium outlet temp, and...

    Re: Heat exchanger temp setting

    I don't understand. Are you saying that oil holds more heat than water at a given temperature?
    If you are pumping 9000 watts into oil or into water the amount of heat added is equal, but the...

    Re: 500 hive operation Honey extraction line

    I use a 28 frame cowen. In a 10 hour day with 2 people we do 100 boxes, about 5-6 drums of honey. I agree the cowen wax spinner is a bottle neck, but the uncapper outpaces the extractor 2-1. That...
