Winegrowers Supplies - Wax sealing equipment for bottles - two different models
For applying a small wax seal just on one surface:- £245.00
It has a double wall container with heating elements inside the double wall. There is an electric cable through the handle, you can't see this in the photograph.
There is a separate stand to place it on, when warming up and cooling down. The container holds about 150 ml of wax.
The 'dosing device' opens a valve in the centre of the conical bottom; the control lever is operated by thumb, the longer you keep it open, the more wax will come out.
The blob of hot wax can be placed on the top of the bottle over the cork, or on the shoulder or the side of the bottle.
Then while the wax is hot, you impress your logo/seal in the wax using a 'stamp', usually made from brass.
