Capping spinners suitable for crushed comb pieces?
We run a honey processing operation in Zambia, Africa. Comb honey from top bar hives is arriving crushed in buckets. After further crushing the combs into smaller pieces we use the dripping method through mesh into buckets overnight in warm rooms. Depending on comb conditions (new/old) and the quantitity to strain into each bucket the residues still contain 20%-30% weight, guessing we loose 10-20% of honey. Any idea how to reduce the loss? Any experience with capping spinners or other machines for comb pieces? My worry is that capping spinners will not work because they are made for cappings. Any idea or experience is appreciated.
