Heated Honey Tank 70 Litre / 100 KG.
Thermostat manual control allows you to bring it to a pre set desired temperature without overheating.
Temperature variable 1 – 99 degrees Celsius.
Constructed of food grade heavy gauge 304 stainless steel. Hygienic and easy to clean. Guaranteed not to rust.
304 stainless steel lid with clamps.
Will return crystallized honey back to liquid state.
Heat honey to desired 30 degrees Celsius.
Gently heats the honey to ensure a good flow. The heating element is between the inner and outer drum. Ensures constant heat 360 degrees. Far better than the older type models with a heat probe. The outer tank you fill with water. The glass tube , shown to the right of the main pic, is water level indicator.
Can also be used to heat wax. Wax melts at approx. 63 to 64 degrees Celsius.
Suitable for the hobby beekeeper and professional.

Beeswax is produced by bees in the form of tiny scales which are “sweated” from the segments on the underside of the abdomen. To stimulate production the bees gorge themselves with honey or sugar syrup and huddle together to raise the temperature of the cluster.
To produce one kg of wax requires the bees to consume about ten kg’s of honey. Bees are thought to produce more wax when feeding on sugar than on honey.
At normal hive temperature of 37C , wax can support a considerable weight and yet can be molded by the bee’s jaws. Beeswax becomes friable at about 49C and melts at 64C . A high propolis content will lower the melting point but older wax and wax bleached by the sun will have a slightly higher melting point of about 65C .
Beeswax has a high resistance to the passage of heat but if cooled quickly will become pale in colour, more brittle and liable to develop cracks due to rapid contraction. For this reason wax for exhibition is cooled as slowly as possible to preserve the texture and colour. To preserve the aroma of fresh wax it should never be raised more than a few degrees above melting point and then only for a short period.
