The Jora composters are designed so they are off the ground, making it impossible for rodents or other pests to gain access to the waste inside. The Compost Tumbler itself has tight fitting latches to secure the waste/compost. There is even a ring provided to allow you to place a padlock on it if you wish.
The Jora Compost Tumbler is built with galvanized steel panels, which are powder coated to last for years. The stand is also made of galvanized steel and the insulation is made from polyethylene plastic, so all the parts are made to last for many years of use.
The Jora Compost Tumbler has two separate chambers. This allows you to fill one chamber while the compost in the other chamber matures. Once the chamber being filled cannot hold any more, the mature compost in the other chamber can be emptied and the cycle can begin again.
Looking at the photo you can see that it is time to begin filling the chamber on the right while the chamber on the left continues composting to maturity. When the chamber on the right is filled to capacity, it is time to empty the chamber on the left, which will provide you with excellent fertilizer for your garden.
The composting process generates heat from the microorganisms interacting to break down the waste material inside the compost tumbler. The ability to contain heat means more interaction among microorganisms and therefore more heat, which amounts to faster, more efficient composting.
The heavy-duty insulation inside the Jora compost tumbler allows for a high internal temperature, facilitating the interaction of more microorganisms, bringing the temperature above 160 degrees Fahrenheit. This ability results in the quickest and most efficient composting experience possible.
Because the heat being generated is derived from the microorganisms working together to break down the waste, and not from the temperature outside or the sun, the location you’re in is not a factor. Because of the unique type of insulation built into the Jora Compost Tumbler, which is an integral part of the design, you are able to compost through the cold temperatures of winter, long after other composters have stopped working.
As you compost, rotating the tumbler is necessary for the best results. When the fresh waste is introduced and brought into direct contact with the waste that is already decaying, it increases the efficiency of the process by allowing the waste to break down more quickly.
The center axel allows the Jora Composter to easily turn the tumbler by using the gravity or weight of the waste/compost in the tumbler as it turns. You simply turn the composter tumbler by hand when introducing waste.
The Jora Compost Tumbler was designed with a tall stand, which allows you to fill the tumbler easily without bending down. It is just as easy to empty, which is done by placing a wheel barrel or another container beneath it.
