Commercial capacity aerating compost tumbler:
The 'Restauranteur' is a Swedish designed and built 'continuous use' rotating compost bin. The Restaurateur Composter (JK400) has the capacity to accommodate for restaurants, cafes, supermarkets, schools or small community garden projects and is easily used, rotated and maintained. The smart dual chamber system allows you to use and make compost concurrently.
The Joraform JK400 Composter utilises the two fundamental principles of good composting - both insulation and aeration. This creates the optimum environment for decomposition, something that a standard composter just can't do.
The Joraform Restauranteur JK400 Composter has a 400L capacity and is recommended for processing between 10 litres of waste per day, with a weekly capacity of 50-80L.
Dual Composting Compartments:
One side is filled while the other decomposes.
The JK400 has two separate composting chambers or compartments, designed to be able to work in a continuous cycle so you can constantly be adding to the composter and decomposing at the same time with no waiting time in between batches.
This gives the best results when composting too as the compost is able to mature properly. We recommend doing so in 6 week cycles between the compartments for best results!
The Perfect Composting Environment - Aeration & Insulation:
The Joraform Restauranteur Composter works on a single, central rotating axis. The contents inside the composter are easily mixed, without the need to use a shovel to turn the contents.
The Restauranteur Composter also has a large turning wheel so rotation is super easy.
Two air vents are located at either end of the unit so that as the composter is spun, air is drawn into the composter which adds vital oxygen into the mixture which is essential for microbial activity.
The internal chambers of the Joraform Restaurateur Composter are completely insulated internally by a high-density polyethylene (HDPE). HDPE is UV stabilised and resistant to both extreme hot and cold temperatures.
This insulation allows temperatures to rise to around 65 °C, which produces optimum conditions for micro organisms to thrive. The enables the processing time to be reduced, with compost being fully decomposed and ready to use in as little as 2 weeks!
Normal issues with composting don't occur with the Joraform Composters as the process is so efficient there is no time for rot or become rancid.
This insulation also ensures there is no problems with pests or rodents as the unit is completely sealed and protected.
