I never put wet frames on hives and don't see any advantage in doing it. But, if you have the fetish, I would imagine how long they would take to have honey expunged would depend on temperature and external sources of nectar. External sources are going to be harvested first. My wet supers are sprayed with Aiazawa strain BT to protect from wax moth and stored in stacks indoors protected from rodents and insects. The wet combs instantly draw the bees in to repair and refill supers and I am convinced it increases my harvest.
