    I am aware of what needs to happen, but the only setups I have seen is extractors above bulk tanks by 1 floor. So all slurry runs into large 150 gallon sump then is pumped with progressive cavity to heat exchange to spinner then back to finished bulk tank.

    What is this "cappings / honey collecting unit" and how much do those cost. I see C&B wants 6k for their heat exchanger.

    I would like to have the entire new part of the system setup for under 10K. I already have multiple bulk tanks. Possibly repositioning my uncapper and extractors into a different configuration with a wider sump would be the answer to centralized collection point.

    How would you go about blending the wax honey into a slurry? Use a standard 110 blending paddle?

    I see C&B radial plan layout which is nice and gives me some direction:

    It is sold from Cowen, cappings drop into a tub which the honey is pumped into from the extractor by an auger for mixing before pumping. The advantage of this unit is that there is no need for a below grade sump pit. I have my extraction set up all above floor level now

    which ever way you look at it, you need to mix , pump and heat the slurry.

    Hey thats great. David, Ian; I appreciate it. Im a little tight on room so i think I am going to get a little creative with a custom slurry sump that will accomodate both my uncapper and extractors. That shouldnt be a problem though. Unfortuantely I am trying to get this all done inside a 20 * 27 foot area. Im afraid its going to get a little tight in there.

    I hear you, the easy way to solve solutions is to spend money.
