20 Gallon Honey Tank

20 Gallon (160 lbs) Water Jacketed Honey/Wax Tank

Beekeepers, environmentally conscious farmers, garden enthusiasts, beeswax candle makers, and even herbalists making beeswax salves and balms will all appreciate this tank. 

A water jacket tank gives you a more controlled and precise method for warming your delicate honey when compared to warming boxes using light bulbs.

The water jacketed tank design gives you even controlled heat distribution without hot spots that could burn your honey. You can liquefy your thick or crystallized honey to a nice flowing viscosity for filtering and bottling.

Use this tank as a honey ripener or settling tank too.

When warming your honey, the optimum hive temperature is 35°C (95°F). Heating your honey up to 37°C (98.6 F) can result in the loss of beneficial components including some antibacterial aspects and nutritional value of raw honey. Important enzymes along with the honeys wonderful taste and color are destroyed when heating up to 40°C (104 F). For easy and safe beeswax melting just place the thermostat between 62 - 64°C (144 - 147 °F).
