A wax melter is the equipment used to melt wax when making candles.
- It is a large container that can hold about a heavy amount of melted wax;
- It is simple to operate and quickly melt the wax;
- It has temperature settings from warm to 400°F;
- It offers a speedy process to melt a bulk of wax to make candles;
- It can melt various types of wax-like Paraffin, Beeswax, Soy Wax, and Coconut.
While using a wax melter, always wear protective glasses and clothes.
This tool is designed for melting wax for candle manufacturing and has not been tested for another usage.
Do not set the temperature control dials higher than the product’s prescribed temperature for the wax you want to melt.
When not in use or before cleaning, turn the power off and unplug the appliance. When an appliance is hot, do not clean it.
Wax melting time:
The wax type and its accompanying melting point determine how long wax takes to melt. The thermostat for the melter can be configured to read temperatures between 122°F and 400°F (temperature is maintained within 5 °F). The thermostat sensors detect temperatures from the bottom of the vessel.
How to use it?
- Connect this device to the power supply.
- Before applying wax, ensure the pour spout’s lever is closed (when closed, the knob should face to the right).
- No more than the recommended volume of wax should be added to the melter’s tank. Leave at least 1/2 inch of space between the wax and the top of the melter.
- To save energy, hasten melting, and regulate wax temperature, set the lid of the melter and keep it there as much as possible.
- The desired temperature should be set on the thermostat. The heater will warm up to the desired temperature. The red indicator light will turn on when the heating unit is in use.
- Regularly monitor the wax temperature and make any temperature adjustments.
- To properly mix all the ingredients, the wax should be stirred occasionally.
- Place the pouring container beneath the pour nozzle once ready to discharge the melted wax, and then gradually turn the handle to the left to open.
- To release wax from the device, move the tap’s handle to the left.
- The molten wax will pour from the spout more quickly the closer the lever is to the center. Splashing from (hot) can happen if the spout is opened too far. To prevent overheating the remaining wax as you pour out the melted wax, you might want to lower the temperature or turn the melter off entirely (simply apply this if you are discharging all of the wax simultaneously; else, the wax will start to cool down and you will require to heat it again).
- Switch the thermostat dial clockwise until it stops turning off the equipment.
- When the wax melter has cool enough to handle, wipe it down between uses or waxes with toilet tissue and a little rubbing alcohol. Through this, any debris and dust that may have been present in the tank can be removed easily.
A wax melter is simply used to melt the bulk of wax when it comes to fast making many candles. A variety of top-quality wax melters are available here.
