Jora compost tumbler - Domestic

Jorakompost 125/270 JK Tested and passed
JK 125/JK 270 has been tested and evaluated in a project comprising 466 households in small houses and blocks of flats and day nurseries. The results have proved most satisfactory as has been shown in the Report No. 4229 by the Swedish Authority for Environment Conservation.
A rotating heat compost for convenient and simple use all the year round. Enjoy seeing the conversion of your kitchen waste into nutritious compost earth. Compost earth with which you can fertilize lawns, pot plants, and flower beds.
From apple-core to verdant lawns, come along, all the way!

The key is rotation
Mixing is necessary for making composting work.. Both for making the fresh waste coming into contact with that already mouldered, thereby rendering the process more effective, and in order to add air, necessary for the high demand for oxygen of the process.
This is done in a very simple way, JK 125/JK 270 being constructed for rotation. Furthermore it is very easy to adjust the air supply to suit the quantity of waste by aid of ventilators in the side walls of the machine. Insufficient airing makes a compost smell bad.

JK 125/JK 270 heat and efficiency
Breaking down of a compost generates heat. Different micro-organisms start working at different temperatures. JK 125/JK 270 is well insulated and allows the temperature to rise to as high as +75 degrees centigrade at maximum breaking down. Without insulation it may not be possible to reach such a high temperature, which in turn means that micro-organisms demanding high temperatures for their activity will never start working.
Using an insulated, rotating compost drum you get a more even heat distribution and an active breaking down process in the entire volume. That is why composting is made rapid; approximately 6 to 8 weeks time. The high temperature makes JK125/JK270 especially suited for kitchen waste.
Two compartments, for maximum result JK125/JK270 is divided into two compartments to make emptying and bringing to maturity easier. The compartment filled last is covered by a sheet while the other compartment is emptied of its completed compost.
