The Centrex 3000 is a new and improved 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.
When used seasonally by up to 8 or 9 adults, compost will normally
only need to be removed annually at the beginning of the following
season. If needed, additional collection chambers are available
for long term compost storage.
The Centrex 3000 AC/DC features a 350 watt 120 volt thermostatically
controlled heater in a sealed compartment beneath the unit coupled
with the standard Sun-Mar 30 watt turbo fan and 2" vent stack.
The Centrex 3000 AC/DC also features a 4" vent stack which
may be used to vent the unit when no electricity is present. We
also include a 12 volt 2.4 watt fan that we strongly suggest installing
in the vent stack, especially if you need to put a bend in the vent
as shown in the diagram.
All 3000 series units are supplied with a 1" drain hose which
should be connected to the 1" drain at the bottom left of the
unit. Click here for more information
on handling excess liquid.
This unit is for use with a Sealand low flush
toilet, purchased separately.
