Beeswax useful in candles Concluded from P. 3 The honey farm hauls about 350 boxes at a time from hive locations on the flat-deck trailer to the processing plant. The box- es are then moved into a hot room in stages. The hot room is kept at a temperature of 90 degrees. This warms the honeycombs in the boxes and makes it easier to ex- tract the honey. Some boxes will contain hundreds of bees but the majority of the population remains with the hive, producing honey until they are gathered for the winter months. Small beekeepers simply destroy their bees because they don't have the technology or facilities to over-winter them. The boxes are brought to the extraction room and unloaded. All the frames in the boxes are lifted out in- dividually Each box con- tains eight frames in which the honey has been produced. Frames which have been filled with honey by the bees and then sealed with beeswax have to be run through an uncapping machine. This unit passes the frame between two heated knife blades, cutting the wax off the front and back of the cells in the frame. Seventy two frames are then put into a centrifugal extractor The spinning ac- tion draws the honey from the cells. Three extractors are used, one being filled, one extracting and one being emptied. In warmer weather, it takes about 20 minutes to extract the honey but in cooler weather, it takes about 30 minutes. All the wax scrapped off the edges of the frames and from the uncapping machines is augered from a wax sump into a wax melter. The liquid honey from the extractor flows into honey sump in the floor by gravity flow. Beeswax is also used in cosmetics and candle? after being bleached.
