The Lyson 216 is a 20 frame, motorized, radial stainless steel honey extractor for the serious beekeeper. This mid-level extractor has full length steel legs for improved rigidity and an easy to use digital controller for the 1/3 HP DC motor. The drum is constructed of 24 gauge stainless steel with a conical base to facilitate honey drainage. Honey is drained through a welded stainless steel 1 1/4″ valve with O-ring seal. The clear acrylic cover lets you observe honey extraction easily without having to open the extractor.
This machine has several safety and economically friendly features. The braking system is engaged when the STOP button is pushed, the Emergency button is pushed, or if the cover is lifted (interlock not shown in picture), which is very useful when little ones are helping with the extraction! The 1/3 HP DC motor allows for precise configuration of acceleration and speed. The motor is only supplied with as much power as it needs. It will also automatically shut down after 15 minutes of inactivity. A great energy saver!
Motor Specifications: A variable speed DC motor is powered by an adjustable controller with digital indication of motor speed. Speed is adjusted up and down through a keypad. The motor speed is controlled by pulse width modulation (PWM), which switches power on an off as needed instead of dissipating (i.e. wasting) power through a rheostat or resistor. The result is very efficient, low power extractor operation with excellent control. The extractor comes with a standard 110V grounded power cord. A five gallon pail will fit under the honey gate if the extractor is mounted on a pallet or thick piece of plywood.
The Lyson 216-20M can hold 4 to 8 deep (9 1/8”), 20 medium (6 1/4″), or 20 shallow frames (5 3/8”). All Lyson equipment comes with a 24 month warranty.
Note: Due to the small diameter, a larger extractor is recommended for deep frames.
