Noticed inthe lates mags, Cowen is advertising thier 60 frame air extractor.
With the ad they include a claim from a customer, refering to extracting 1000 deeps with 5 guys in 9 1/2 hours day.
Not really sure I believe it. I have one, not air, but I cant possibly see how they can run 10000 frames through the machine in 91/2 hours.
We run a production of 250 boxes per day, average and topped 350 boxes. With the 350 box day the uncapper never went idle, and we were running a 6-8 min extraction period. We pull out 1400lbs/hour average. Thats with 4 guys.
I cant figure how they could get 1000 boxes through even if they were pulling wet honey. The machine can only convey the frames so fast.
