How flow frame work

FAQ

Are the Flow Frames made from BPA free plastic?

We have worked hard to ensure that our Flow Frames are manufactured from the very best food grade materials.

The clear viewing ends of the frames, as well as the honey tube and caps, are made from a virgin food grade copolyester. The manufacturers have assured us that it's not only BPA-free, but it is not manufactured with bisphenol-S or any other bisphenol compounds.

The manufacturers also advise that third-party labs have tested this material and the results have demonstrated that it is free of estrogenic and androgenic activity. The centre frame parts are made from a virgin food grade polypropylene which is also free from any bisphenol compounds and is widely accepted as one of the safest plastics for food contact.

Plastics have been used for many years in beehives for both brood and honey combs and have not been found to have a negative impact on bee colonies.

The blades in our Flow Frames form partial honeycomb cells. The bees “complete” these cells by joining the gaps and drawing the comb out, then coat the entire cell with wax.

We are constantly striving to further develop and improve our products and continue to investigate alternate materials which may be suitable for manufacturing.

How to do cleaning and Flow Frame maintenance

We haven't found the Flow comb itself needs cleaning if it stays in the hive - the bees do a great job of keeping it clean. If you remove Flow Frames from the hive and store them for a while they may need cleaning. You can do this by using hot water (just hot enough to melt wax, no hotter than 70 Celsius / 160 Fahrenheit). A hot water hose is good. Set the Flow comb to ‘cell open’ position, this allows the water to run quite easily through all parts of the frame.

We have designed the honey trough at the bottom of the frame so that any remaining honey can drip back into the hive for the bees to use. If the honey leak-back gap remains clear this works well; however, if the bees block it up some honey may remain in the honey trough after harvest. Clear the leak-back gap prior to harvest and inspect the honey trough. If the honey trough is dirty it can be cleaned from outside the hive using a bottle brush or something similar.
