The compost turner is a special trailed equipment for the production of organic fertilizers. One of the company's activities is the introduction and extension of the technology for composting organic wastes that accumulate in agricultural enterprises in the form of waste from animal husbandry, crop production, vegetable growing, horticulture, etc. For this purpose could be used such materials as:
Aerobic composting is carried out using special equipment - trailed or self-propelled compost turners (aerators).
Composting is a process that is carried out with the participation of microorganisms in the raw material, as well as with the help of bacteria, which, when mixed, can be added with water to windrows. Making turning, crushing, moistening, and mixing, the compost turner creates inside the windrow an optimal environment for the vital activity of microorganisms, which, in turn, carry out the composting process.
The addition of water and bacteria helps to accelerate the decomposition of materials. As a result, already after three or four turnings, the unpleasant smell of manure disappears, and the temperature in the windrows rises to 60 degrees, which means that weed seeds and pathogenic microorganisms die. In a warm period, after 35-40 days (5-15 turnings), you will get an organic fertilizer that looks like soil and does not have an unpleasant odor.
A.TOM company is a Ukrainian manufacturer of trailed compost turners, the design of which meets the main criteria for proper composting. They mix the raw material in windrows. The process of turning (aeration) is based on the replacement of carbon dioxide with oxygen. Drum design with impellers ideally crushes and mixes the raw materials, while oxygen enters the windrow to replace carbon dioxide, maintaining an aerobic environment.
Thanks to the humidification system and the application of an inoculant with bacteria, the process of decomposition of materials are accelerated. Indicators such as humidity, temperature, and CO2 levels are monitored using measuring tools inside the windrow, in order to ensure the optimal rate of aerobic reactions
The convenience of composting with the help of A.TOM compost turners is:
Composting is an opportunity to obtain a highly effective fertilizer rich in nutrients that improves the biological, chemical, and physical properties of soils, and helps to reduce soil mineralization, the accumulation of organic matter in the soil, which gradually leads to the restoration of fertility, stabilization, and increase in crop yields. After composting, the soil is enriched with nutrients, so within 5-8 years, it is possible to increase the humus content in the soil from 1 to 5 percent.
Using A.TOM compost turners, you can get nutritious humus compost, which in the future will give healthy soil, naturally grown products, and healthy animal feed. Call us and we will tell you all about the possibility of producing natural fertilizer both on the scale of small farms and large agricultural enterprises.
