When there is remaining beeswax capping, it is melted down. This process separates the beeswax from the remaining honey to increase the beekeepers honey yield. The beeswax capping is recycled into a variety of uses such as foundations or candles.
Our uncapping tanks and melters quickly and efficiently separate the beeswax from the honey in the beeswax capping. Dadant even offers a solar powered beeswax melter for the hobby beekeeper and electric beeswax melters for the commercial beekeeper who has too many beeswax cappings to melt with solar power.
