JK400 Joraform Compost Tumbler
This jora rotary composter is the extra large version. We can't believe how quick and efficient this composter is. It takes up very little room and composts so fast you struggle to keep it full. No rodent problems or strong smells, fits easily in a small garden. You can even add cooked meat and fish waste! The compost digester is like a large mechanical stomach that literally digests the organic matter you feed it. A fully insulated bin that bolts on to the side of your house, it’s clean, self-contained, and it turns food waste into rich compost faster than the average household can fill it. The Jora compost tumbler is so well insulated that the internal temperature reaches around 75 degrees centigrade. At that kind of temperature the micro-organisms work so fast that you can almost see the food breaking down before your eyes
Composting occurs at temperature intervals of+2 to +78C. Different micro-organisms work at different temperature intervals. Higher temperatures give a higher degree of hygienic composting, and are, therefore, more favourable.With equal moisture distribution and oxygen configuration in the Jora unit, plus with continued addition of waste, the temperature will rise to 65-75C. You don't have to buy a thermometer, as you will see the steam rising from the contents. In fact, it can get too hot to bury your hand in it - should you wish to do so!
Two Compartments for Maximum Results
The digester is divided into two compartments. When the first compartment is full (approx. 6 weeks) it is covered with a metal plate (provided). When the second compartment is full the first can be emptied of its’ finished compost.
