Crawler type windrow turners for sale

The crawler type turning equipment is popular among our customers for organic composting making. It only needs one driver for controlling its moving and turning. Moreover, it is convenient for you to control the turning teeth. You can raise it up easily if the materials have been turned yet. Besides, there are also hydraulic type turning equipment for your compost making.

The crawler type compost turner belongs to the ground composting and fermentation mode. Firstly, it needs to stack the materials in long strips, then the crawler type compost turner slowly moves and flips on the long strip, regularly stirs and crushes the materials, and finally decomposes the organic matter under aerobic conditions. The crawler type compost turner can replace high-strength manual turning, which greatly saves a lot of time and labor, and creates a better aerobic environment for material fermentation. The crawler type compost turner uses a crawler-type walking design, which has a large contact area with the ground and will not slip. It is powered by a diesel engine with low energy consumption and stable performance. The equipment can automatically adjust the turning speed according to the looseness of the material pile. The operator only needs to control the walking direction of the equipment, which saves time and effort.

The moving type compost turner is a pile turning equipment that integrates the functions of walking, crushing, mixing and turning. It has the advantages of uniform mixing, thorough turning and long moving distance. It is widely suitable for fermentation of organic wastes such as livestock and poultry manure, sludge waste, organic fertilizer plants, mud waste plants, horticultural fields and straw sawdust.

The moving type compost turner has the following advantages:

  • The operation is simple and convenient. It only takes one person to drive the machine to turn over an entire pile of compost. It is easy to start and save a certain amount of cost.
  • The construction cost is low. This method of composting and fermentation only needs to stack organic fertilizers and does not require a professional trench for fermentation. It is simple and easy to operate and is suitable for small-scale production and places where production conditions are not very good. Do not spend too much human resources and material resources to carry out careful debugging.
  • The turning effect is good. The moving type compost turner can effectively turn the organic manure compost so that the compost can obtain sufficient oxygen during fermentation, which increases the fermentation efficiency.

What should you do for preparation of windrow composting?

Composting manure materials by windrow composting, there are something you should do before you use our machines. Doing these steps, the composting process and effects will be better.

Adjusting the moisture content of your organic manure materials for fermentation

Generally, for fermenting well, it is better for you to make the moisture content of your manure materials be about 50%-60%. While, most of fresh organic manure has too much water content, which is not suitable for composting directly. Thus, it is important for you to dewater your organic manure materials. For your reference, SX Machinery has screw press manure solid liquid separating machine for you to control the moisture content. Especially, you can control the water content of dewatered materials easily.

Ranking the dehydrated organic materials into windrows

Using windrow composting equipment, you had better rank your materials into narrow and long windrows. And then you can drive our windrow turners for composting. For your information, when you make manure into windrows, you should control the height and width of windrows within certain limits. Because the compost windrow turner unit should stretch across the windrows. It is necessary to make the height and width of windrows match with the composting machine.

What new technology does SX use in windrow composting equipment?

As a professional organic manure fertilizer windrow turner manufacturer, SX uses new technology and designs for making your composting process better. All the windrow compost turning system takes advantages of aerobic fermentation technology for better composting effects. What’s more, for operation, we employ dynamic composting methods for you to control the machines easily.

Aerobic fermentation technology

SX windrow turner machine adopts aerobic fermentation technology for processing your fresh manure into fertilizers. It is well known that there are anaerobic and aerobic fermentation methods for composting. And our machines ferment your materials aerobically. It can turn your materials for providing oxygen for composting.

Dynamic composting methods

Generally, you can compost dynamically or statically. Our windrow compost turner equipment turns your materials dynamically. When the temperature of your organic manure materials reaches 55 degree centigrade, you can operate the windrow turner for turning materials. About 20 days later, the temperature will not raise and be stable. It means the whole composting is finished. Besides the dynamic windrow composting machine, we also have static fermentation tanks. But the static fermentation is more suitable for large scale organic fertilizer making. Meanwhile, the static fermenter costs more than our window turners.

4 features of Windrow Compost Turner

The windrow compost turner is a machine integrating crushing, walking, turning, and stacking. The crushing function not only saves a crusher but also improves the crushing efficiency and reduces the cost, so it is ideal equipment for your composting.  

Flexible Site

The windrow compost turner is suitable for the composting of small-scale organic fertilizer materials. The organic fertilizer materials are stacked in the shape of long strips. The width can be determined according to the working width of the windrow compost machine. It achieved fast composting by turning the heap back and forth. The advantage of this type of equipment is that the site does not limit it and is flexible and free.  

Better Effect

The window compost turner is designed according to the principle of aerobic fermentation so that the fermentation bacteria have space to fully exert their functions.  

Low Cost

The power of the whole machine is balanced and suitable, the energy consumption is low, and the output is large, which reduces the production cost of organic fertilizer and makes the finished fertilizer form a price advantage.  

Dual Functions

The body is equipped with a drum and a knife-shaped tooth, which has the dual functions of turning and crushing the material, which can not only turn the manure, sludge, and other materials evenly. It can effectively crush the plate agglomeration in the fermented material. Our machine diesel engine has its own electrical and front shovels hydraulic system. And our machine diesel engine uses an international famous brand with low emissions. This will save you some money. For producers who are building a factory for the first time, with a small production scale and insufficient funds, it is more suitable to choose a stacking composter. This kind of turning and polishing machine does not need to build a fermentation tank, but only needs to have a flat cement floor, which can save a lot of infrastructure costs.
