Elevating belt compost turner offers a turning capacity of 300-450 cubic meters per hour, with a heap height of 4.3m. It has the similar advantages as groove type compost turner and hydraulic compost turner that helps process organic waste quickly and efficiently, but with a totally different working principle and parts from other composting equipment.
We offer a full line of compost turners, rotary screens and compost grinders to help improve productivity and streamline maintenance.
Elevating Belt Compost Turning Process:
The first stage–grinding and piling:
Grinding: In “parameters affecting composting process”, we have analyzed the great importance of reducing the size particle of raw materials: lowering size of pellet materials will increase the surface area and promote micro-organism activity and accelerate the composting speed. Thereby, vertical grinder should be used to crush compostable raw materials before piling.
Piling: Compostable raw materials, such as sludge, municipal organic waste, poultry litter, chicken manure, swine manure, cow dung etc. are loaded into bunkers separated by concrete walls (left). Composting is done in bunkers with our chain plate compost turner system. The amounts of bunkers to be built depend on the quantities of raw materials to be decomposted.
The second stage–composting:
The mass bed is turned a minimum of every 7 days with a elevating belt compost turner which performs the turning function from the top of the piles. Elevating belt compost turner employs a backward-sloping conveyor with powerful teeth attached to the face of the inclined conveyor to lift the organic wastes up and over itself. The plates or teeth on the turning mechanism can be changed to provide more or less shredding action.
Working process: as the turner moves forward, the conveyor lifts the organic up the face and drop them off the back into the windrow, which allows for good size reduction, aeration and mixing. Its role is to turn the material from the existing windrow through and drop them back the turner machine to construct a new windrow as the material falls in the same bunker. It breaks the pile up with each turn.
The last stage–sieving:
More Details about Elevating Belt Compost Turner:
◇ It usually mount on the front of a wheel loader and powered by the loader’s hydraulic power transmission system that pushes the turner through the windrow or pile.
◇ It is with automatic drive for track operation, often used in under-house channel composting (moving the composting material along the channel with each turning) in the agricultural-animal raising field/poultry operations for fly control and mixing and composting animal wastes, and made for many different size facilities–small- and medium-size plants.
◇ Elevating belt compost turner minimizes aisle space. It shifts the materials from the front to the back and can turn an entire windrow, nearly eliminating the need for space between windrows.
