New & Improved Industrial Electric Honey Extractor

Improved Leg Design

Our industrial sized electric honey extractors now come with a sturdier leg design which gives them even better stability during extraction.

Wheels Added

In addition to the improved leg design, we have also added wheels. Now you can move the spinner around with ease.

How To Clean Your Honey Extractor

Before cleaning your extractor, if possible, tilt it at a steep angle and leave overnight to ensure you’ve drained the last remaining honey. Once done, scrape out the remaining wax and propolis with a spatula. Rinse the inside of the drum with cold water and wipe it down with a clean towel. Use plastic bags to cover the electric motor etc.

Tips When Using Your Honey Spinner

Follow these tips when using your honey spinner to ensure best results as well as a longer lifespan.

Frame Placing

Face The Top Outward

When placing your uncapped beehive frames into the basket of the extractor, make sure the top of the frame is facing outward.

Balance It Out

Don't Let It Wobble

Space frames equally apart inside the basket to ensure the machine won’t wobble. Be sure to check that the floor is even too, you do not want the machine to wobble in the slightest.

Keep Tap Open

Let The Honey Flow

Keep the honey gate open and let the honey flow into a bucket. Do not let it accumulate inside the tank while extracting.
