    Beekeepers Friend pre-cut strips are specially manufactured in the USA from porous board.   All you need to do is soak them in oxalic-glycerine mixture.  This will provide you with a natural varroa treatment eliminating the possibility of resistance to synthetic treatments.  Furthermore, this is a great, low-cost option which can save a commercial operator thousands of dollars.

    Customer Testimonial:  "Excellent - most impressed with the results.  Tried others but this is definitely the best" CH Hamilton.

    Spin dryers are the preferred alternative to the cappings screw press.

    Cappings are the only product not to go through the normal extraction process so using a Cappings Spin Dryer will ensure you extract the maximum amount of honey possible from your cappings: 100kg of extracted honey should only leave 2 kg of dry cappings.  Very easy to use, you simply put it next to your uncapping tank or machine, open the lid and tip the honey loaded cappings into the basket, shut the lid, turn it on (the machine self-stabilises) and turn it off when the honey flow stops.

    After a day of extraction, the honey house is clean and the wax is available to melt down later.

    With the spin dryer the wax is not broken up into micro pieces saving you from needing extra filtration. This model is the ideal machine for enterprises of up to 100 hives.  It can take up to 10 kg of cappings.

    Please Note:  Larger models are available.

    Contact us for more details.

    Delivery will be 4-6 weeks ex France.  POA

    The Hot wax pressure pot sprayer is ideal for applying beeswax to plastic foundation.  This machine is manufactured by Viseco in Germany.

    The sprayer includes a heated pressure pot to hold 12 litres of beeswax, heated hose and heated spraygun.  This provides a way to evenly coat your foundation to your desired thickness with minimal overspray.

    As wax becomes more valuable this sprayer will save over- coating your frames and will ultimately save you time and  money.  There is no need to clean the wax out after each use as wax can stay in the system and it will be re-melted when reusing.

    This unit can also be automated if required.

    The Hive World Duoline Hot Wax Sprayer from Viseco in Germany is a simple and efficient way to spray your own plastic frames with beeswax.  You will achieve an even coating of the quantity you desire with minimal overspray.

    With beeswax becoming more valuable you not only save on the time taken to coat your foundation but will also save on wax used.  There is a great advantage in knowing where the wax came from that is used on your frames. Electronic controls enable you to regulate bowl and nozzle temperature. No need to clean out the gun on completion of job as the wax is re-melted each time it is turned on. All that is required is a supply of clean wax and a small air compressor.  It is recommended to set aside an area to do your spraying in to contain any overspray.

    See our video -https://www.hiveworld.co.nz/spraying-wax-foundation/

    Hot wax spraying is useful with many other applications in which solvent-free media are to be liquefied -

    • refining wooden surfaces on furniture and parquet finishing
    • corrosion protection in metal spinning
    • improving and designing candles and wax sculptures
    • professional ski servicing
    • impregnating packing materials

    Advantages are improved surface refinement, simplicity of operation, gentle heating up of the material and small consumption of air pressure.

    Paraffin wax dipper by Hiveworld NZ  The Paraffin wax dipping tank has been designed to make this essential but previously dangerous job safe and simple:

    • No need to put your hands anywhere near the hot wax while working.
    • The sides are insulated for efficient heating and for protection against accidental burns.
    • There is a temperature gauge fitted so you can ensure the correct temperature is maintained and not exceeded.
    • Fitted with an overflow pipe in case of boilover.

    It has two lids with clamps to hold your boxes so while two are being dipped, the others can be draining and then painted while still hot to let the paint be absorbed into the timber.  (If the waxed box dries the paint won't stick).

    With this model  one person can easily dip and paint up to 250 boxes a day. Customer comment -

    I can leave my young worker dipping and painting by himself knowing he will not burn himself or the building down.

    Included are two x 4-ring gas burners to heat the wax, however you will need to supply the gas bottles.

    Please Note:  If you allow the dipper to cool off with the lids down you will need to warm the tank to melt the paraffin so you are able to raise the lids again as the wax will have solidified around them.
