Now we come to the real point of beekeeping – when you reap the rewards of the girls hard work. Hive World carries a range of equipment to make this job simpler and less messy.
Our useful uncapping tray holds the frame at an easy angle to allow the honey to drain into the large capacity tank. You can slice the cappings off with either our electric or serrated uncapping knife. Otherwise you can prick the comb with our uncapping roller (the best way with manuka) or use a capping scratcher. This handy tool is also useful for checking brood health.
We have 4 different extractors to take the effort out of this job:
2 styles of Electric Extractors – a 4-frame tangential and 8-frame reversible radial
2 styles of Manual Extractors – a 2-frame and a 4-frame model
20L Pails with lid and honey gate are perfect for storing honey. The pail perch is a nifty device which holds your pail until the last drop of honey drains out. Hive World also stock a large 80L (100kg) capacity heated Honey Tank with thermostat for accurate temperature control.
We stock nylon and stainless steel Honey Gates as well as the Robinet Perfection honey gate from Thomas Apiculture in France which makes a very clean cut off with no drips. Thomas also manufactures a large range of extractors, uncapping machines, honey pumps and processors.
