It would seem that what can be a complex and fascinating in beekeeping. However, the process of extracting honey is not just long and complicated, it is also quite dangerous. Removing the honeycomb from the hive, honey production in order to exercise the tense and insecure, despite the presence of a protective suit beekeeper. Flow project is intended to facilitate, accelerate and secure the production of honey.
The principle of operation is quite simple hives Flow. Externally – it’s all the same houses with holes for insects. However, within, Flow strongly differs from the “colleagues”, mainly in that it contains the unique “streamlined” cell. With this technology, as soon as the cell filled with honey, beekeeper simply insert the tube into the hole and turn the lever. After that honey will begin to drain itself, most importantly do not forget to put the capacity of the output. The process of descent of honey takes different times, depending on the variety and quality of the latter. However, such a recovery process is much easier and faster. Much more important is that Flow allows you to not disturb the bees.
