Why does the compost have to be moved during conventional composting?
Here is a quote from the manual of a conventional compost unit:
„Small quantities are taken out through the slide opening. For larger quantities:
The composter has to be taken apart first.
The previously inserted material often exerts pressure onto the side walls.
This can complicate the disassembly.
Put aside Upper layers
The moving begins.
Mature compost has to be removed and separated from not-yet ready biomaterial.
This is the point when foul odors may occur.
Remove the mature compost
The composter has to be rebuilt.
The not-yet ready material has to be shoveled back into the composter in alternate layers with materials such as leaves or wood chips.
Nobody can really remove material from the bottom of a pile that weighs approximately 100kg.
To get to the ready material during conventional composting, the pile must therefore be moved.
Hardly anyone piles the material on in layers according to the manual’s instructions.
The new composting with SUPERCOMP
Why I there on moving of the pile with the SUPERCOMP?
After the run-in phase, the downward movement of the pile is braked and simultaneously supported by a patented landing gear at a height of about 25cm off of the floor.
The heap is no longer laying on the ground with its full weight.
The pile is loosened under the device, and is also fully ventilated vertically in its interior (chimney effect).
This way SUPERCOMP allows you to comfortably remove compost from the bottom – without any dismantling or moving around a pile.
The moving is replaced by the gravity, and is therefore no longer necessary.
With the compost regulators, the supporting effect is additionally supported. Afterwards, the regulators no longer need to be moved.
