Knife apiary NRSM.

They are used for printing out honeycombs and conducting other works with wax. When unpacking the combs, the knife is heated in hot water.

Knife Passechny steam LRNP.

The steam is heated, which is supplied from one of the hoses from the steam generator tank, and the steam is taken out through the other hose. The tank is placed on an electric stove or another source of heat.

Vibronozh VN.

Applied for printing honeycombs on large apiaries. It consists of a knife, a tank-steam generator and an electric motor. The latter transmits reciprocating motion to the steam-heated knife.


Served for pumping honey from the printed honeycombs. They consist of a metal tank, a rotor with cassettes for frames, a drive and a crane. When the rotor rotates under the influence of the centrifugal force, honey from the cells splashes, drips down the walls of the tank and collects at the bottom. By the method of placing honeycomb frames, honey extractors are divided into chordial and radial.

In chordial hands, the frame occupies the position of the chord and pumping out of honey is possible only on one side, after which the frame must be turned. Chordial honey extractors are non-negotiable and negotiable. In the latter, frames are placed in cassettes that can be swiveled to the walls of the tank by one side or the other. Distinguish medobonki, wrapped by hand and self-rotating (reversible), where the rotation of the cassettes occurs automatically at. deceleration of rotor rotation.

In order not to damage the combs, the rotor speed from 60 … 80 rpm is firstly gradually increased to 150 … 200 rpm and after extraction of 50 … 70% of honey, the honey catcher is stopped for the turnover of the honeycombs. On the other hand honeycomb honey is pumped out with increasing frequency from 60 … 100 rpm to 250 … 300 rpm, then the honeycomb is again wrapped and pumped out honey at the maximum rotor speed.

In radial medobonkah the plane of the frame is located along the radius of the rotor, it is not necessary to wrap the honeycomb. The rotational speed of the rotor should also increase smoothly, reaching 300 rpm in the second half of the cycle. They produce electrically driven honey extractors: MP-50A – radial electrified for 50 frames of multi-body or 25 frames of double-hull beehives with automatic speed control and M4 / 32RE electrified, operating in radial mode for 32 frames and in chordial for 4 frames.

The manually operated hand belts are MP / 32P and M4 / 24P, operating in a radial mode for 32 and 24 store frames and chordial for 4 frames, as well as chordal frames for 4 frames – M4R, for 2 frames – M2R and tapeless for 3 framework – IBZ.

Containers for honey.

Plants produce several containers with a capacity of 50 kg. Capacity EMK, made of stainless steel sheet, is intended for transportation and storage of honey, and EDM and EDMK – from rolled aluminum alloys – only for its transportation.

Inventory for the processing of wax raw materials in the apiary.

Solar wax-up.

This wooden box is an inclined cover consisting of two parallel panes. Under the lid is placed a baking tray of white tin, to which wax raw materials are put for perevotki. Melted under the sun, the wax flows down in the trough. The voskotopku is strengthened on a pillar dug into the earth so that it can be rotated around its axis during the day. With this, the sun’s rays will fall perpendicular to the glass and it is better to heat the wax-up. To re-heat on a solar vosktoppke it is possible only damaged or incorrectly built up light shop nesting honeycombs, the waxed outgrowths scraped from the framework of frames, cell caps, etc., are obtained. As a result of overthrowing, the first-class wax-kapanets is obtained. The remaining waste – the dewdrops contain up to 50% wax and they are processed by pressing, as well as the dark sushi.

Steam wax-up.

It is designed for processing fermented wax materials. The plants produce waxes of VTP and VT-11. The first is used on small apiaries. It consists of the outer and inner tanks and the lid. Into the inter-walled space, 5 to 6 liters of water are poured, the inner tank is filled with waxy raw material, covered with a lid, and the wax-up is put on a heat source. The resulting steam, passing through the openings of the inner tank, melts the wax that flows through the drain pipe. For 45 … 60 minutes you can process about 3 kg of raw materials.

The VT-11 wax-up consists of an internal aluminum tank, an outer steel tank, a lid, a mesh cassette, two taps and a safety valve. 80 liters of water are poured into the interstitial space, 20 cellular frames or 13 … 15 kg of land are loaded into the cassette. In eight hours, 140 cellular frames are being re-heated. In addition to processing sushi, the wax-up is used for settling and sterilization of previously waxed wax, disinfection of small inventory, diaphragms, linen, as well as the preparation of sugar syrup and hot water.

Voskopress apiary.

It serves to extract wax from pre-baked wax raw materials. Voskopress is placed on a sump (a barrel filled with hot water), a cruciformly connected rope is laid on the lower wooden lattice, and burlap is placed on it.

Then, the cooked land is poured in portions, interlaid with straw, and after filling the stupa, the burlap sacks are wrapped, tied with a rope, and covered with wooden pulp. The pressure of the screw is strengthened gradually, so as not to break the burlap. The pressed wax, together with hot water, flows into the sump. The remaining measure in the package is cleaned from the straw, dried and delivered to the harvesting stations. The sump is covered with a lid and insulated. With slow cooling, the wax is better cleaned from foreign impurities settling to the bottom and floating over the bulk of the wax. Press capacity 11 kg per hour, working volume of stupa 13 liters.
