I'm curious - this article mentions heating honey to get it to pass through the filter.  I don't heat my honey other than the heat of the air in the beeyard.  And I guess if you use one of those electric capping knives, the honey is heated in the cutting/melting off of the cappings.......

Do other people usually heat their honey when they harvest it?

Generally raw honey is not heated as I understand it. However many commerical beekeepers do heat it or pasturization.

if you want to harvest large ammounts of honey you have to heat it, there's no other way. if you want the pump to pump the honey, it has to be at least 70°C. so...any large scale beek, or large scale honey "proces" factory surely sells over-heated honey.
honey should never be heated to more than 40°C
