The first stage / phase – Wax melting and sterilisation: Wax foundation sheets are made from a 100% pure natural wax o n l y! A quality of buyed-in and exchanged wax being always checked. Impure wax never taken in. Raw material/wax is loaded to the sterilisation tank. Wax being heated up to 120 °C, is melted and boiled, until all water contained therein has been evaporated. Note, that just melted wax could contain even 78% of water, older one contains 13%. Then temperature rises up to 140 °C and commences wax sterilisation process. At this high temperature all bee pathogens, particularly viruses, contained therein, die. Sterilised wax slowly being cooled down to 7280 °C. While cooling is in progress, precipitation, dust and other impurities settle down and later being taken away. Next stage – forming / embossing wax foundations: Water-cooled drum, partially submerged in the hot liquid wax bath, slowly rotates while it’s surface forms a thin wax sash, later being separated, cooled down in water and coiled in rolls. Passing drum’s formation, wax sash is directed to the embossing rollers. Embossing roller makes honey comb foundation prints, resembling the worker bee brood cell pattern on the sach. Then we have to cut the sash into separate comb foundation sheets. Especially in spring, the bees use wax excess in building their honey combs doing this considerably faster. One kilogram of thicker foundation sheets contains 10 pcs. Final stage – packaging of foundation sheets: Cutted into sheets, wax foundations are being weighed and packed for 20 PCS.
