Compost Windrow Turners
Reliable, efficient, economical, low-maintenance, and long lasting. Extra-hardened, replaceable steel blades are uniquely positioned on the drum to allow for complete blending right to the base of the windrow. Material from the outside is brought inward and from the bottom to the top forming a peak position, allowing the windrow to have a chimney effect for CO2/oxygen flow.Technical support, including database calculations, online batch tracking, monitoring and consultations for making quality compost available. All machines come with one year warranty.
Composting waste is much more efficient when the compost windrow is allowed to breathe. Turning outside or in an open ended building allows for more air exposure.The waste must be exposed to sufficient oxygen in order to increase aerobic microbial activity. Turning the windrow stimulates micro organisms which break down coarse organic matter. It is important that the windrow is turned frequently and efficiently. Turning times will be determined through monitoring. Temperatures are taken with a thermometer probe. Usually more turns are required initially for the proper mixing and to activate the breakdown process. After the first two weeks when the windrow has reached it’s maximum temperature less turning will be required. In the last 2 weeks even less. In total about 5–12 turns maybe required over the 6–10 week period depending on what you are composting.
If managed properly and turned sufficiently at appropriate times, rich, quality compost can be ready in as little as 6 weeks. Efficient composting gives you the tools you need to grow more abundant, high quality produce and have a safer healthier environment.
