Things You Need To Focus On About Windrow Composting

The windrow compost turning machine can be said to be the core equipment in the current organic fertilizer production process. It can control the fermentation temperature and the moisture in the stack during the windrow fermentation process. At present, the more advanced compost machines on the market can achieve no dead angle turning, and can complete the composting operation of all materials in one workflow.

So is there anything that needs to be paid attention to in the process of using the windrow compost turning machine to ferment organic fertilizer?

1. Pay attention to the temperature, oxygen content and moisture content in the fermentation raw materials. Temperature, oxygen and moisture are directly related to the windrow fermentation cycle of organic fertilizers and the quality of the finished product. Therefore, special attention should be paid to these three aspects when using a turning machine to ferment organic fertilizers. The purpose of the turning operation is to control the temperature, increase the oxygen content in the material, and reduce the moisture content, but it is also necessary to pay attention not to turn too frequently, so as not to affect the temperature increase in the stack.

2. The stacking should not be too high. When using a turner for fermentation, the width of the windrows can be determined according to the output. The height of the compost should be between 0.8 and 1.5 meters. If the height of the compost is too high, it will affect the air permeability of the raw materials, resulting in oxygen content in the stack. Insufficient amount affects fermentation.


3. Pay attention to the freshness of the raw materials. If the raw materials are stored for too long, anaerobic conditions may be formed. Under the anaerobic state, the organic matter content in the raw materials will gradually decrease, which will affect the quality of the finished products. If such raw materials are used to ferment organic fertilizer, attention should be paid to adding fresh raw materials for adjustment.

4. Pay attention to the turning  time of windrow composting. When using a turning and throwing machine for fermentation, it usually takes 10-15 days for the initial fermentation to decompose. The turning and throwing time can be determined according to the temperature in the stack. It is tossed a second time, followed by a second aging and fermentation, usually 3-7 days.

5. Pay attention to the nature of the fermentation raw materials. There are many raw materials that can be used to ferment organic fertilizers, such as grass and wood fragments, crop straw, livestock and poultry manure, etc., but the carbon and nitrogen ratios in different raw materials are different, and the fermentation cycle is also different. To ensure the quality of the finished product after fermentation, targeted adjustments should be made before fermentation, which can be applied after mixing different raw materials evenly.

Sludge Organic Fertilizer Turning Machine

Organic manure composting site

The sludge fermentation organic fertilizer turning machine is a kind of trough fermentation turning equipment; the trough turning machine is a time-saving and labor-saving turning and turning equipment among the fermented organic fertilizers. It is divided into: shallow trough turning machine, deep Trough type stacker, automatic lift type stacker.

moving type caomposting machine

Organic fertilizer turning machine is currently widely used organic fertilizer turning equipment. It includes ground walking type turning machine, hydraulic crawler type turning machine, trough type turning machine with high accumulation of fermented materials and turning over. It has the advantages of large throwing output and bottom removal of materials. It is a good choice for large-scale organic fertilizer fermentation, especially for high-cost organic fertilizer manufacturers. The unique track design has not only changed the low output of the traditional light rail-only turning machine, but also overcomes the shortcomings of the high cost of transmission accessories of the conventional rack and light rail drive turning machine.

groove type fertilizer composting equipment

Compared with other pile turning machines and fermentation methods, the trough turning fermentation machine has the advantages of high output, small area for turning, material turning and bottom removal, lower moisture in the fermentation process, stable operation of the equipment, and low failure rate. Therefore, it is a common equipment for general organic fertilizer fermentation. The trough turning machine (turning and throwing machine) is an organic fertilizer fermentation equipment, which is suitable for the industrial fermentation of animal manure, domestic garbage, sludge, crop straw and other organic solids. It can also be used for feed fermentation. This product is divided into vertical towers. Fermentation equipment and trough-type fermentation equipment are two series of products; trough-type fermentation equipment adopts a ground trough structure, and can design a series of fermentation products that can be used by one machine and multiple tanks according to the plant structure. It has simple operation, short fermentation period, and sufficient fermentation. , Low pollution and convenient expansion.

large scale wheel type compost turning machine

The innovative point of the trough turning machine produced by FPC is that it fully utilizes the deep pool design of the underground space and the long-distance refurbishment process, and utilizes a limited area to make the large-scale harmless treatment of organic waste a reality.
