    Default Do your deep frames tip over in your extractor? Looking for tips to prevent it.

    I have noticed that it is harder to balance deep frames in my radial 10/20 extractor when extracting than mediums. It seems that they want to tip over like dominos, this doesn't happen with my mediums. Does anyone have any tips?

    I've been experimenting with that, without much success.

    Update. I extracted 42 gallons today, 6 deeps and 13 mediums. What I tried, in addition to starting slowly, was interspacing a super of medium frames between the deep frames. It worked. I think that part of the problem is that my deep frames, and half of my mediums are plastic and they aren't as stable in the extractor as wood frames. I had only one slight "domino fall" and it happened when I ran interspersed plastic deep and mediums; When I interspersed wooden mediums with the plastic deeps it didn't happen at all. I have found my solution.
