Perfect for medium to heavy seasonal or light residential use,
the 2000 series allows for both a longer composting cycle, and larger
waste volumes. The increased surface area in the evaporating chamber
coupled with the larger heating element also provides better evaporation
on electric units.
When used seasonally by up to 7-9 adults, compost will normally
only need removing annually each spring. In residential use compost
will have to be extracted more frequently.
The Centrex 2000 A/F AC/DC combines the features of the non-electric
and electric units to produce a hybrid unit that will be ideal for
those anticipating 110 volt power in the future, those who are in
an area that sees frequent power outages, or those who would like
to take advantage of the evaporative capacity of the heater when
110V electricity is available to them. Even with the evaporation
capacity, the overflow drain should be installed with this unit
as there will be overflow when the unit is being used in DC/NE mode,
and when it is used to maximum capacity in AC mode.
The Centrex 2000 A/F AC/DC is designed for use with a Sun-Mar
Dry Toilet (purchased separately). This unit is ideal for those
who do not have water, but still want the composting action to take
place outside of the bathroom area.
The Centrex 2000 A/F AC/DC is supplied with a 29 ½"
pipe piece (10" diameter). This is long enough if the floor
of the bathroom is up to 38" above the surface that the composter
is placed on. The pipe piece can be cut to size and additional pieces
ordered if necessary.
The Centrex 2000 A/F AC/DC requires that 2 vent stacks be installed
to handle the separate venting functions. The 2" vent is in
use when the AC fan is in operation, and the 4" vent is venting
the unit passively when there is no power available. As an extra
option, we include a 12 Volt 1.9 Watt fan with the Centrex 2000
A/F AC/DC. You may want to install this fan if the unit is to see
maximum capacity use, and you should install the 12 Volt fan if
you have to put any bends in the 4" vent stack, as you will
then lose the "chimney effect" advantage of a vertical
stack, and will need to provide air movement with the fan.
While in AC operation, the unit should not require that an overflow
drain be connected, unless it is being used heavily. While in DC/Non-Electric
operation, the overflow drain should be connected. Click
