this doesn't need any introduction. its been on the market for a long time. now we have a new one installed and i thought i would do a small review. this replaces our old beetech spinfloat (pre hummer). while it worked great, it was a nitemare to run and its was getting worn. like most spinfloats...
just a small update on this.
its running ok. however it was having issues with very thick honey.
one of the fixes was to get the back plate installed. this channels the honey coming in to the outside. that allows the wax to form properly and less issues arise.
however this changes a few things so i'm hoping to get a better plate made.
one surprising thing has been less issues with crystalline honey. especially when you set it to bypass for a while, it seams to wash a lot of it out.
one downside has been the pressure/flow/heat/separation equation is a bit tricky to work out.
we are finding that it starts to let wax through at ~4 bar pressure. we have never reached max pressure.
a lot of the time we can run all day without cleaning it out or on heavy wax days a simple quick clean out when we go to lunch.
one of the oops was the core broke and the honey went a different path, ripped out the wax and drag it out. so we had one lot with some chunky wax.
