Betterbee is now carrying Lyson Honey Processing Equipment
Lyson is a Polish company that manufactures and distributes beekeeping supplies. Their primary business has been in Europe. Betterbee is now their USA distributor.
Betterbee found Lyson during the Apimondia meeting in Kiev and was very impressed with their quality and safety features. They attended the dealer meeting hosted by Lyson in November and set up to bring their honey extractors and equipment to the USA. The first shipment has arrived!
Please go to http://www.betterbee.com/Products?search=lyson to see the initial line.
There are small hand-crank extractors for the hobbyist up to 56 frame radial extractors for the commercial beekeeper. The larger extractors are in inventory, but have not been put on the web yet. Most of the motorized extractors have safety interlocks so when you open the lid, the power to the motor is cut. The motors are all set up for DC power and the extractors all come with the controller box and change power from 110v ac to the required DC power needed for the speed you want. The large heater to de-crystallize barrels of honey is set up for 220 volts.
The extractors all have a stainless steel honey valve welded on.
These extractors are quality made and affordably priced for the quality.
