What Is the Uncapping Tank?

This is a remarkable multi-purpose uncapping and straining tank at the most reasonable price found anywhere! This uncapping tank stores up to 10 deep or shallow frames for uncapping and has a convenient lid for storage. They are made of high-density polyurethane.

This dual unit tank stacks one way for uncapping and, when reversed 180 degrees, becomes a strainer tank holding 8 gallons (30.24 l). A metal strainer grid that fits into the bottom is included. A honey gate is also integrated.

A honey gate is a valve or tap that can be opened and closed to allow the honey to flow out while keeping the bees inside the hive. The lid is also included.

Efficient Honey Processing

The design of our uncapping tank specifically caters to the needs of beekeepers by allowing efficient handling of honey frames. With a sufficient tank depth, it easily accommodates wax cappings and captures drippings during the uncapping process.

The integrated strainer effectively separates beeswax from honey, ensuring a clean extraction while preserving the valuable cappings for further processing.

    It's ok. But doesn't have frame rests

    by Blain on Jun 15, 2023

    I bought this and it'll get the job done, but it doesn't have the nice frame rests like the other brand of plastic uncapping tank does. If I could do it over again, I'd have gotten the other one. I believe the price is just a little bit more, but it has a lot more functionality. The other one even has multiple lids and other functions too.

    have used this uncapping tub for years. It should be one of the first things you purchase when extracting honey

    This made my first honey harvest a joy to work extracting honey !!! I have helped others extract into 5 gallon buckets and this set up allows not only easier extraction , but so much more room to work and makes less mess to clean up afterwards. The wax collection screen also helps so much getting every last little bit of honey we can , THANK YOU MANN LAKE !!
