The Centrex 3000 NE 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 NE also features a 4" vent stack which may
be used to vent the unit when no electricity is present. There is
an optional 12 volt fan that we recommend installing in the vent
stack, especially if you need to put a bend in the vent as shown
at right. No electricity, except the optional fan mentioned above,
is required to operate this unit.
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.
