Take advantage of the OCBA’s shared extraction equipment. This is a great resource, especially for beekeepers who are extracting for the first time.
The OCBA’s extraction equipment is available only to members. The rental charge for one extractor and the accessory tools is $5 per day (or part of day). The equipment may be rented for a maximum of four days.
OCBA has two honey extractors. The smaller extractor is a two-frame, tangential extractor. Because of its size and its plastic construction, it is easier to transport. The larger extractor is a six-frame, stainless steel, radial extractor.
The OCBA also has a full complement of tools and accessories necessary to extract honey:
- 5 gallon filtering system including: cappings tank and lid, 2 filters and bucket with gate valve
- cappings scratcher
- hot cappings knife
- cold cappings knife
- refractometer (optical)
