Uncapping roller

$13.00 Excluding GST

Hive World’s Uncapping Roller is the fastest way to prepare your frames for extracting.
The uncapping roller rolls easily over capped frames to pierce the cells.
This reduces the amount of wax removed when extracting as it doesn’t destroy the comb foundation.

If you are extracting manuka honey, it is necessary to prick the comb with a roller as this agitates the honey which aids extraction.

    Hive World Plastic Uncapping roller:

    • Simply roll over the capped frames before extracting to pierce the cells.
    • This is especially helpful when extracting manuka as it agitates the honey.  (Due to manuka’s thixotropic properties, agitating helps it to liquidise and flow freely).
    • Speeds up your uncapping process as rolling is much faster than slicing with a knife.  (Knives have to be heated, etc. etc.)
    • The easy rolling action makes this a nifty gadget you will appreciate when extracting time comes.
    • Reduces the amount of wax removed when extracting.  This helps the bees to refill the frames faster as they don’t have to produce so much beeswax to rebuild the comb cells.
