|Four paddles built into the inside
of the tumbler make it easier to mix
old and new material, wet and dry
matter. They also facilitate aeration,
which speeds up decomposition.
The paddles form handles on
the outside of the bin, for easier
moving and rotating.
|The tumbler’s large opening makes
it easy to fill and empty the composter,
while the door helps control the level
of moisture in warm weather and
keeps rain from washing out nutrients.
|The base of the BluePlanetSMART
makes it possible to collect up to
4.4 imperial gallons, of the compost
liquid runoff, a terrific source
of soil nutrients. To that end,
a scale (in litres and gallons)
has been integrated into the base.
|The rotating system, which enables
the material to be regularly turned over,
is a faster and easier way
of producing compost. Tumbling
improves mixing, aeration and moisture.
It keeps the compost moist by
preventing direct heat and dehydrating
air from slowing down the decomposition
process. The system is made up
of six wheels and six axles.
A manual pump simplifies
the transfer of the compost leachate
to a watering can.
