Honey Extractor - 2 Frame Manual
CLICK & COLLECT ONLY
USING YOUR EXTRACTOR:
Before you start uncapping, the honey gate needs to be opened with a bucket underneath it straight away.
(If the honey gate is closed and honey builds up, when going to spin the honey you will struggle to get it to spin. You will whip the honey in the bottom. Creating a huge mess and risk of breaking your extractor.)
Once frames are uncapped, place into the extractor.
Using the handle, spin the frames for a good 5 minutes at a reasonable speed
(each time will be different).
Stop the extractor, flip the frames around and spin the frames again for another 5 minutes.
Stop the extractor once more and flip the frame again. Spin the frame this time for 2-5 minutes.
Your frames should now be empty, ready to go back into the honey super on the hive.
You cannot leave your extractor unattended.
If you need to extract 1 frame instead of 2, place 1 honey frame in the extractor. Then place an empty frame parrallel from each other in the cage.
This makes the extractor stable to extract.
Clean your extractor with hot water around the inside of the barrel.
Place bag over the top of the extractor with tape securing it to keep insects out when not in use.
DO NOT USE CHEMICALS OR ANY CLEANING PRODUCT TO CLEAN YOUR EXTRACTOR! (this contaminates your next extraction)
(There is no need to take your extractor apart. This voids your warranty if something were to go wrong, putting it back together.)
