Rectangular Uncapping Unit complete
Our Price: $179.60

Consists of
An upper tank with a coarse mesh bottom and a timber support which you rest the frame on to uncap.
A middle tank also with a mesh bottom and an insert of a finer gauze to partially strain the honey.
A bottom tank with a solid base which is fitted with a poli gate to dispense the honey.

To use, set up as shown and uncap into the top tank balancing the frame on the pointed uncapping stick. Allow the capping's to drain into the middle and then the bottom tray where you should get honey with minimal wax bits which you can put in with the honey out of the extractor. When you have finished uncapping and the bulk of the honey has drained away enclose the whole unit in a clean very large plastic bag and allow it to drain for a few more days, a stir every day hurries the process along. By doing this you will collect virtually every bit of the honey and end up with fairly dry cappings ready to be melted sown to recover the beeswax.

Optional extra We make a piece of nytrel exactly the correct size to fit in the rectangular uncapping unit if you want an extra fine strain. See HONEY PACKING/Straining
