Steam wax extractor composed by a tank in stainless steel Dia: 525 mm – Height: 650 mm with handles; lid with ring fastener. Strainer in stainless steel 18/10 – d. 480 mm – H 480 mm, placed inside the drum. 

The SAF (Italian manufacture) 115 litre unit.  It is a stainless steel single layer tank contiguously mounted on a water bath tank with the heating element in the water bath.  Inside the tank is a stainless steel liner with a mesh bottom that sits up off the floor of the wax tank about 50mm.  The wax is melted in the mesh bottom liner and flows through the mesh filter into the tank bottom which has an outlet port. It is called a "steam" melter because there is a riser coming up into the tank from the water bath that lets steam rise and fill the tank which does the melting.  This speeds up the melting process as the hot steam can permiate the whole wax holding, not just melting from the outside in.  You could get temperatures in the tank of saturated steam, ie up to 100 C (212 F).  The lid has a clamp to ensure it stays put when the tank is filled with steam.

A nice unit with good capacity that would suit an operator with 50 to 500 hives.
