The AirLance Process
The AirLances uniformly inject and remove air three dimensionally throughout the compost pile.
MATERIAL FLOW
In operation compost is removed from the bottom of the cell. The auger is suspended from rails and rotates. As it is rotating the auger moves toward and away from you. As it moves it cuts a slice off compost off the bottom of the cell.

In operation, once a day the auger slices off the bottom of the compost in the cell and the compost in the cell slides down, leaving a void on the top for adding fresh unprocessed compost.

A single auger can be used for numerous cells set in a row. Total processing time to remove 3,000 cu. ft. of compost and mix 20,000 cubic ft. of compost in the cell is about 1/2 hour. The auger then moves into the next cell.

AERATION
The AirLances uniformly inject and remove air three dimensionally throughout the compost pile. Assuring the biomass remains uniformly aerobic and at a high composting rate. The AirLances are also removing excess heat and moisture. As well as collecting odorous air deep within the compost pile before it escapes into the building.
