Paraffin wax dipper

$4,504.35 Excluding GST

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 3-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.
