The Dual Chamber System allows the two (2) chambers to operate independently. This ensures the best possible results, at all times and in the most hygienic conditions.
Joraform in-vessel dual chamber composting system process.
Different communities of microorganisms predominate during the various composting phases. Initial decomposition is carried out by mesophilic microorganisms, which rapidly break down the soluble, readily degradable compounds. The heat they produce causes the compost temperature to rapidly rise. As the temperature rises above 40°C, the mesophilic microorganisms become less competitive and are replaced by others that are thermophilic, or heat-loving. At temperatures of 60°C and above, many microorganisms that are human or plant pathogens such as ecoli and salmonella are destroyed.
During the thermophilic phase, high temperatures accelerate the breakdown of proteins, fats, and complex carbohydrates like cellulose and hemicellulose, the major structural molecules in plants. As the supply of these high-energy compounds becomes exhausted, the compost temperature gradually decreases and mesophilic microorganisms once again take over for the final phase of “curing” or maturation of the remaining organic matter. Because temperatures over about 65°C kill many forms of microbes and limit the rate of decomposition, compost managers use aeration and mixing to keep the temperature below this point.
Output material: stabilised organic compost (ready for use without the need for further composting or maturation).
Use: For the growth of above- and below ground food types (all) or for soil rehabilitation / conditioning.
