    Default Cook & Beals Spinfloat

    Can anyone give me the pros and cons of the C&B spinfloat. I am trying to decide whether I would rather have a wax spinner or a spinfloat in my new honey house.

    Thanks,
    Dave

    Default it's ok

    Pros:
    Very very little honey in wax cappings. They come out very fine and dry. Very easy to handle into melter.


    Cons:
    Sometimes leaves very fine air bubbles in the honey. They settle out, but takes time depending on temperature.

    After 20 years it will need refurbed due to wear.

    I agree with both post above.....had the drum on the floor happen! It will put small air bubbles in the honey....the thicker the more. They all never come out....will always be a little foggy looking. BUt its definately really clean!

    Default Cook & Beals Spinfloat

    you will need a heat exchanger to heat the honey before it goes thru the spinner, if you buy a Cook and Beals heat exchanger , you should use canola oil as the heat medium instead of water, water reacts with the aluminum and corrodes it.Some kind of electric current leakage causes this I am told
