Compost windrow turner refers to the equipment which can compost organic fertilizer materials piles. It can improve porosity and oxygen content, mix in or remove moisture, and redistribute cooler and hotter portions of the fertilizer windrows. Compared to groove typecompost turner, compost windrow turner doesn’t need you to build the composting groove. When working, you just need to put the organic fertilizer materials into long windrows on flat spaces, that can save you a lot of cost and space on building grooves. The high working flexibility of compost windrow turner also is the reason why we recommend it to you.

What equipment is needed to compost windrow fertilizer materials?

Because of open windrow composting, the compost turner must have high flexibility. For this reason, we design moving type compost windrow turner. And there are two types of it: 4 wheels moving compost windrow turning machine and crawler type windrow composting machine.

4 wheels moving compost windrow turning machine

This type of compost turner adopts 4-wheel design, which can move forward, backward and turn around. When working, an operator need to drive it. And you need to pile up the fertilizer materials into windrows, then the moving compost turner bestriding above it. After that, the base materials will be composted, fluffy, piled secondary. When the turner passed, the base materials became new windrow. 4 wheels moving type compost turner is the most economical turning machine in ShunXin.

Crawler type windrow composting machine

Crawler composting machine is the improvement of wheels moving type compost turning machine. More points of strength on the crawler makes the machine working more stable and not easy to skid. The working part of this machine is a horizontal drum with stirring teeth. Like wheels moving type compost windrow turner, it can compost the fertilizer windrow into new piles by various steps. In the process of composting, the turning machine can shatter, crush and reduce the moisture content of materials.

What’s the difference of moving type compost turner and crawler composting machine?

Design of our compost windrow turning machines.

Our compost windrow turners have always been improved. Compared to the traditional moving type compost turners, our new designed fertilizer turning machines have larger capacity and consume lower power.

Spray system

We equip spray system with the composting machines. Because of aerobic composting method the machines adopt, fertilizer materials temperature improves greatly when composting. That can greatly improve fertilizer quality but may cause water loss. To ensure the efficiency of composting, it’s necessary to add waters to the materials. So we design spray device for these machines. When composting, if the materials are too dry, you can turn on the sprayer, and it can spray water evenly to the materials. That will make your composting procedure much smoother.

Crushing function

The biggest technological breakthrough of these machines is the crushing function when composting. With the dewatering of fertilizer raw materials, the cutter shaft can effectively break the fertilizer blocks formed in the composting process of fertilizer. That not only saves your cost on crushing machine, but also improves the efficiency of whole fertilizer plant, reduces the cost of composting.

How important these new designs are? And how does they work?

What problems can be solved by composting fertilizer windrows?

The fermentation of objects usually carries out in hot and humid environment. If you make organic fertilizer material windrows and let them ferment naturally, it will take a long time and cause many troubles. To solve these problems, using compost windrow turner can be helpful.

Smells and flies

Hot and humid environment not only has great benefits to the fermenting of fertilizer materials, but also accelerates growth of flies and produces bad smells. The longer organic fertilizer materials take to ferment, the more serious these problems will be. It will cause environment pollution and also affect your fertilizer making plant efficiency.
Choosing compost windrow turner machine, you can finish the whole composting process in 7-15 days. In the process of composting, because of high-speed rotating of composting teeth, the contact between fertilizer materials and air can increase well. That can help the volatilization of smells. After composting, the new fertilizer windrow has more fluffy structure and better air permeability, and flies don’t have suitable environment to multiply any more.

Why it’s important to pay attention to these problemt?

Pest eggs

The main materials of organic fertilizer always are animal wastes. There may remain many parasite eggs. If they can’t get well treatment, the quality of final fertilizer may be not well.
As mentioned above, composting the materials will produce lots of heat, improve the temperature of fertilizer materials. Plus the aeration condition, the composting of fertilizer windrows can greatly destroy the pest eggs in materials and improve the purity of final organic fertilizers.

Matters needing attention in windrow composting

  • The working site must be smooth and firm, and there should be no concave and convex surface greater than 50mm in the working area. Smooth and firm working site can reduce the wear and tear of machines. The working process can be more efficient.
  • Demands of fertilizer windrows: the width can’t be too large, you can increase the height within 100mm, and the length is also adjustable according to your working place.
  • To make sure the machines can turn around freely and working smoothly, you need to remain an empty field of more then 10 meters around the ends of the material windrows. And the distance between the material windrows should be more than 1 meter.
  • These machines are just suitable for composting fertilizer windrows, they can’t be used as walking vehicle and load-carrying vehicle.

Composting is a pretty important step of making organic fertilizer, choosing right way for materials fermenting and suitable equipment is the key to make quality fertilizer products and profits. ShunXin will help you all the time, just contact us and get the quote.
