How does compost turner work to make organic fertilizer fermentation?
As mentioned above, organic fertilizer composting is a process of killing harmful bacteria, pest eggs and grass seeds in manure by high temperature. The high temperature is generated by microorganism activity. This called aerobic fermentation. And the optimum temperature for organic fertilizer composting is 65℃-70℃. Because it can kill harmful substances but is not too hot to kill beneficial bacteria in organic material. When the fertilizer compost turner is working, it will turn the raw material to ventilate. For one thing, it can decrease excessive temperature of compost to prevent beneficial bacteria death. For another, it can make raw material fully contact with oxygen, so the microorganism can decompose organic material into organic matter faster.
What method can compost turning equipment use to compost organic material?
In general, there are two methods can compost turner use to make organic fertilizer fermentation. Groove type compost method and windrow compost method.
Groove type compost method
Groove type composting is a method to put organic raw materials in the trench to make fertilizer fermentation. Then you need to mount rails on both sides of the fermentation trench. So compost turner can straddle the fermentation trench and move to turn organic fertilizer. Here, we can provide you with groove type compost turner, wheel type compost turning machine and chain plate type compost turner. They are all equipped with a fully automated electrical control system. So you can finish the whole compost process easily. In addition, combining with transfer vehicle, they can realize multi-groove fermentation.
Windrow compost method
If you don’t want to build fertilizer fermentation groove, you can choose windrow compost method. During this process, the organic materials will be piled into windrows, whose sections are trapezoidal or triangular. And then using windrow compost turner to turn them to speed up compost. For this, SX can offer you crawler type compost turner and moving type compost turning equipment. This kind of fertilizer compost turning machine is controlled by control rods or steering wheel. Only one worker, you can compost a large amount of organic waste.
