The Centrex 3000 NE utilizes a continuous flow design for very heavy cottage or medium residential use. With a continuous flow system, rotation of the drum moves compost along the larger and longer 3000 series drum, before it drops automatically into the collection housing at the end of the unit. Under normal operating conditions the drum will not have to be turned backwards for emptying.
The Centrex 3000 NE (Non-Electric) is the non-electric version of the Centrex 3000 which is fitted with a 4″ vent stack. Installation of a 12 Volt fan is optional, but it is recommended for heavy seasonal, residential use, or where the installation is particularly subject to downdraft, being surrounded by high trees or hills. We also recommend the fan if you need to install a bend in your vent stack.
In the case of the micro flush model the waste is transferred by the micro flush. The flush of 0.5 litres of water from the ceramic pedestal carries the waste sideways and then down into the drum of the processor. From this point on the two modes are identical. The microflush pedestal can be up to 4 metres away from the composter in a horizontal plain and a couple of floors up vertically.
The Centrex 3000 has received Australian Standards certification and is approved in most states. It can go with either microflush pedestals or waterless pedestals, purchased separately.
Note: If purchasing a Centrex 3000 NE with a waterless pedestal, a waterless kit would be required for the installation.
