What methods are used with compost windrow turner?

In terms of machinery and composting principle aspects respectively, our windrow compost turning equipment adopts two methods to turn manure waste into compost fertilizer.

The ground fermentation method

For one thing, in the mechanical respect, windrow compost turner mainly adopts the ground fermentation method. As the name suggests, the production of compost by piling organic waste into long windrows on the flat ground. Then, driving the windrow compost turning machine to turn and mix the raw materials for speeding up the decomposition of organic fertilizer. Here, no need to build fermentation trenches.

Aerobic fermentation method

For another, the composter mainly adopts aerobic fermentation technology. The function of these windrow turners is to turn and mix the organic waste from time to time. By turning and mixing, you can adjust the organic material piles moisture and oxygen contents to suitable levels. So, the fermentation bacteria can get enough oxygen and water to act to decompose manure. while it generates a large amount of heat to kill pathogens, pest eggs and glass seeds in waste.  It is advisable to keep the temperature between 60℃ and 70℃, which can kill harmful substances in manure and is suitable for beneficial bacteria living.

Therefore, windrow composting machine can help you turn organic waste into compost within 20 days.
