Re: I am a monk at a monastery that produces beeswax candles to sustain ourselves
Some of the ways I have seen for cleaning wax are to filter it or let the particles settle to the bottom of it.
Some I can imagine but have no direct wax experience with and along the lines of centrifuge would be a cyclone type process. BUT that woudl require some outright experimenting if ti works at all.
I can tell you this about cyclone separation. It requires that the particles to be removed are heavier than the material being filtered. I a typical cyclone dust collector it also requires the cleaned material. (Air) rises back up the center of the cyclone before leaving the separator. This requires two 180 degree reversals in the travel of the material. One of which serves in the separating of the heavier particles. This does not sound promising for wax.
heating the wax in a vat and letting the particles settle to the bottom then remove the cleanest wax from the top sounds like a much more doable process.
In all most info I can find says you are in an area you will have to pave the way for. Some method of just letting the nasty stuff settle to the bottom seems to be the most common method.
