With the development of edible fungi industry, the scale of fungi planting increases greatly. Especially the growing of commercial mushrooms. But it will generate a large amount of waste, including corn cobs, sawdust, cottonseed husks, etc. If leaving the waste alone, it will cause serious pollution to the surrounding environment. Then how to treat the mushroom waste in an environmentally friendly way? Converting it into organic fertilizer is an ideal choice. in this process, composting is an necessary step. SX can provide you with suitable mushroom compost machine to help you finish mushroom litter fermentation quickly and easily.
Tips: Additional materials like gypsum, peat moss, lime, soybean meal, and various other organic items may be added to the compost as well.
What is the key step in mushroom compost making process?
During the mushroom compost making process, the most important process is the fermentation of organic waste. So, it is necessary for you to choose professional machines to help you compost them quickly. With the help of mushroom compost turning machine from SX, you can turn over mushroom soil in a large scale and sold mushroom compost for commercial purpose. SX mushroom compost turner can mix and crush the raw materials in an effective way. So, it is a professional compost turner to help you turn over your mushroom waste materials. Besides, all types of our mushroom compost turning machines adopt the advanced aerobic fermentation technology to ferment the organic waste. As the temperature of compost pile increases, the compost turner began to turn to compost piles and speed up the fermentation time.
What kinds of equipment can help you make high quality mushroom waste compost easily?
In SX company, we have various types of mushroom compost making machines to help you make mushroom waste into high quality compost fertilizer. They adopt the most advanced fermentation technology to decompose the mushroom growing materials quickly. Here are some hot sale mushroom compost machines recommended to you:
Top 1: Self propelled mushroom waste compost machine
Windrow composting is an easy method to make mushroom compost. During this process, mushroom waste will be piled into stacks, whose sections are trapezoidal or triangular. Then compost turner will turn over the material regularly to let the oxygen come into the compost piles to speed up aerobic fermentation. For this, self-propelled composter is an excellent choice. It adopts a four-wheel moving system, so this mushroom waste compost equipment can move forward, backward freely and turn directions without the help of other machines. In addition, by employing steering wheel control system, only need one worker, it can finish the whole process of mushroom litter composting. And it can process 400-500 m³ of mushroom litter into compost fertilizer per hour.
Top 2: Crawler hydraulic mushroom litter compost turning machine
But if you have a larger amount of mushroom waste to dispose of, we recommend you choose crawler hydraulic compost turner. This kind of mushroom compost machinery from SX also adopt windrow composting technology. However, its turning width can reach 2.4-3 m and the turning height of this machine is about 0.6-1.5 m. That is, using it, you can process 500-1500 m³ mushroom waste windrows every hour. Moreover, the highlight of this type of mushroom compost machine is that we have installed the hydraulic push plate on the front of it. So, you do not need to neaten the whole compost piles in composting process, they will form new windrows automatically after turning. What’s more, it also can crush your organic materials, which greatly saves fermentation time and labor cost.
Top 3: Groove type mushroom residue compost turner machine
Is there mushroom litter compost machine that adopts other fertilizer composting method? Of course, we also can offer you groove type compost equipment. Just as the picture showing, all the raw materials for mushroom compost making are stacked into the fermentation grooves. Then, you can use this type compost machine to turn them regularly for better ventilation condition. This helps speed up your mushroom compost making process a lot. Besides, with the turning of raw materials, the temperature of compost piles will grow up to kill harmful bacteria and weed seeds.
Top 4: In-vessel mushroom litter fermentation tank
Do you want to complete the composting of mushroom waste faster? You can choose our in-vessel fertilizer fermentation tank. It is a patent product of our company. The unique closed composting environment design ensures the efficiency of mushroom litter aerobic fermentation. Because it greatly reduces the influences from the outside world, such as seasons, extreme weather, etc. In addition, in-vessel mushroom waste composting also has a characteristic of less occupation. It can even finish the whole fertilizer fermentation in an area of 10-30 ㎡. Therefore, this type of compost turner is popular for commercial mushroom growers who want to make mushroom compost by themselves.
How to processing spent mushroom substrate into organic fertilizer granules?
For many large scale mushroom growing factory, the disposal of spent mushroom compost has become a big problem. But in fact, commercially available ‘spent’ mushroom compost is not always truly spent. Although they can not provide enough nutrients to grow mushrooms well, they can become good raw materials to make organic fertilizer. So, please do not throw them away, just reuse of them to make good fertilizer products.
1. Ferment Spent Mushroom Compost Materials
The main raw materials for fermentation are spent mushroom compost, animal manure, crop straw, and other organic materials. Before fermenting, you need to mix them well and get a better physical condition for aerobic fermentation. Then, choose one suitable compost turning machine to turn them during the organic fertilizer making process.
2. Granulating With Professional Organic Fertilizer Pellet Machine
In order to make more profits from mushroom waste disposal, it is advisable to turn mushroom compost into fertilizer pellets. Then, to make organic fertilizer granules, you need to equip professional organic fertilizer granulators. As a professional fertilizer equipment manufacturer, SX also has various organic fertilizer pellet machine for you.
3. Drying And Cooling Process
After granulating, your composted materials have been processed into fertilizer granules. But, because of high moisture content, they are not suitable for packaging directly. So, the next step for your organic fertilizer making is drying and cooling your fertilizer granules.
4. Screening Best Organic Fertilizer Granules
In order to make high quality organic fertilizer granules products, you need to check the quality of the product before packing them in the bags. In this process, our fertilizer screener can help you a lot. Using this machine, fertilizer granules that do not meet the requirements will be crushed and re-granulated in the organic fertilizer pellet machine. Good and beautiful fertilizer granules will be packed directly.
