With stainless steel built-in receptacles the JK5000 Series in-vessel composting product range offers an entirely new dual chamber designed industrial composting machine.
A unique automated paddle-mixer allows for the frequent and efficient composting of food waste.


JK 5100 is an automatic modern compost machine with a preprogrammed unique mixing technique.
This makes composting cooked food waste easy and convenient. The JK5100 can be installed both indoors and outdoors.


How does it work?
  • Food waste is deposited into the hopper and macerated by a built-in grinder before being ejected into the process chamber (1st).
  • Here the food waste is aerated and mixed with daily incoming fresh waste through a newly-developed mixing technique.
  • An automated pellet dispenser dispenses wood pellets into the composting chamber at regular intervals.
  • After two weeks, the mixing mechanism passes the material into the second chamber. This isolates the material from any further contamination with fresh waste. Here it will stay for two weeks In order to complete the maturation process. The maturation chamber is equipped with an independent mixing system that frequently agitates the compost, ensures further oxidation and maturation etc.
The Dual Chamber System allows the two (2) chambers to operate independently. This ensures the best possible results, at all times and in the most hygienic conditions.
