Marketing Office for Sittler Compost Equipment
recommend using a thermometer with readings from 0 degrees to 200 degrees F to monitor
compost piles or windrows.Temperature should be taken
frequently. In the first week most temperature spikes occur. During this
period it is advised that you take temperatures at least twice daily.
MOISTURE and TEMPERATURE
compost times may be determined
by temperature of the windrow. A 4' probe
thermometer is provided by Global Repair Ltd. with the purchase of a Sittler
windrow turner or may be purchased from us. Please go to our Compost
Accessory page for details.
With proper formulation,
within the first few days you will
notice a steady rise in temperature in a new compost pile as the
microbes reproduce and the process of
breakdown accelerates. If the material is too wet, the temperature may remain quite cool and
constant. Wet material can be dried by turning more
the temperature begins moving up. However, compost that
has over 60 % moisture is usually too wet to turn and will smear. Proper
formulation with wet and dry ingredients, correct C:N ratio and the use of fleece covers helps you
control the moisture content of the compost. For areas that receive
excess rain, or large operations, open ended buildings may be required.
