Continuous Flow Bio-Extractor

Drawing on research and successful implementation of soil microbial-enhancing systems developed in the past several decades, Hiwassee Products is proud to introduce our continuous-flow biological compost extractor. Durable castors make this unit easily movable, and the compact frame conveniently fits through any standard door. Unlike other extractors requiring an industrial grade 230 volt electrical connection, a single 115/120 volt electric feed is all that is needed to power our Bio-Extractor. The stainless-steel construction and high-quality components combined with expert workmanship, provide unmatched strength and durability.
Did we mention Continuous Flow?
Having used batch extractors ourselves, we know full well the complications of aerated extracts and the constraints of large-scale batch extraction. Our customers solve these problems with non-aerated extract produced at a continuous rate.
Many existing extraction systems force air through water to loosen microbiology from bulk compost. This aeration process stimulates microbial activity, limiting the shelf life of the liquid extract. Our Bio-Extractor augers compost materials through a water jet system, rinsing microbiology into a non-aerated extract. Since this process runs continuously, there are no built-in volume constraints. Initial trials have produced up to 5,500 gallons of extract from 1,000 pounds of sifted vermicompost at a continuous rate of 700 gallons per hour at 40 psi. Cleanup of the machine is quick, easy, and efficient.
To achieve a biologically complete extract, the input material must be biologically complete. Water quality will need to be uncontaminated and suitable for irrigation. Every component of the Bio-Extractor has been designed to protect microbiology during the extraction and liquid transfer processes. Best of all, there is no waste from the extraction process as the solid by-products can be recycled into a composting system or used for high-quality potting soil.
