    Smile Maxant 600-3 bottling tank

    I am patiently waiting on the arrival of my new Bottling tank , it is a Maxant 600-3 with the no drip SS valve . Is there anything special I need to do to it before using, other than wash it out ?

    Wash it out with what ?

    Do I need to use distilled water to fill it up with ?

    Thanks

    I fill the jacket with distilled water.

    You can use dish soap and warm water to clean out the inside!
    Enjoy!

    Thanks , I hope to get an extraction line setup someday , so there isn't so much lugging to the bottling tank or drum
    I still don't have anything for processing wax and dealing with the honey filled cappings , but that will have to wait until I get a building made for all of my stuff .

    Ben I have the same tank and you will love using it. I have never used distilled water to fill it but Broke-T has a good idea there. I only bottle once a year and its not filled over 60 days so I just empty mine after I'm done. When you install the glass water level tube be careful not to over tighten things. Just be careful installing it, it took me awhile to make sure it was right. Mine didn't come installed but I think Broke-T told me his did.

    What is the maximum temperature that the tank will do?

    I think it goes to 150 deg. Plus.. I have mine set on 90 deg. And it flows nice. I did not fill mine all the way up with distilled water. Only to about 1/2 or under. I only add 5 to 10 Gal of honey at a time. Did u get the pail perch? U will love the perch.

    No I didn't get the perch. They didn't have any at Beemaid , I will get one though or just make one out of SS at a machine shop locally.

    You think it would be convenient if there was two valves mounted on the Bottling tank so two people can bottle at the same time?
