Radial vs Tangential What is the Difference?

Tangential:

  • Frames are parallel with the center of the basket. Only the comb facing outward is extracted.
  • Frames must be flipped multiple times to extract both sides and to prevent blowouts where the comb breaks due to the weight of the honey.
  • Better for thicker honey as it's easier for honey to move perpendicular, than to move at a slight angle like that of the radial extractor.

Radial:

  • Frames face the center at a slight angle so comb on both sides can be extracted.
  • Frames don’t need to be flipped.
