Perhaps you meant a cappings extractor?

Guess not, Lyson's device is an extruder.

Excellent piece of equipment, have used one of the Lyson wax extruders for the last 5 years , does a really good job of squeezing out pretty much all of the honey, leaving the wax compressed and ready for melting.
What size is yours and how many frames an hour will it handle?

The middle sized one, it will take 100kg of wax cappings an hour...faster than our Lyson uncapping machine can uncap, approx 285 shallow frames an hour, or 245 deeps.

That is good to know. I had one fellow tell me he was not impressed with his but he was new to beekeeping and I was not sure of his assessment. Another question. Are you using the Lyson extracting line? If so what size and pros and cons on it.
