Treat your combs and yourself to the very
best uncapper available -then your bees don't have to clean the
combs before they put more honey in. Our uncapper uncaps combs
at the rate of 12 combs per minute or 80 supers per hour. The
conveyor in the tank holds 50 frames. The feed chain holds 2
boxes of combs at a time. The main part of this uncapper is what
we call the "head". In this head are the cutters and motors.
It is bolted to the top of an eight-foot stainless steel tank.
The combs are placed in the head and two silent chains carry
them through the revolving cutters, which remove the cappings.
The uncapped comb is then on a chain that slowly conveys it toward
the other end of the tank. There is room for fifty frames to
rest until the extractor is ready for them. The cappings that
are cut off, do not fall onto the combs that have been uncapped.
As the combs pass through the cutters, they are held in place
by a very rigid guide system. The depth of the cutting can be
instantly changed. An adjustable slip clutch is provided. The
value of this combination is to reduce breakage of frames in
case a comb is started crosswise. If this should happen, the
clutch stops the chains. The cutters are powered with 3/4 h.p.
motors, using belt drives. A stainless steel shield over the
head prohibits any capping or honey from being thrown out.
