BACKHUS Lane Turner Closed LTC

The System for Closed Lane Composting


  • Closed dynamic system
  • Fully automated material feed and output
  • Fully automated material transport within the lanes by regular turning
  • Optimized oxygen supply through pressure ventilation
  • Optimized water output through pressure ventilation
  • Fully auomated process control
  • Exhaust treatment of process and hangar exhaust

Advantages of the Dynamic Treatment Procedure Compared to Static Procedures:
  • Homogenization and aeration of the material by turning in one step
  • Prevention of anaerobic areas
  • Efficient moisture management during turning ensures optimum water balance
  • Optimized process control and shorter treatment times

 Advantages of the BACKHUS Lane Turner System Compared to Other Lane Turners:
  • High turning capacity up to 1,500 m³/h shorten the operation time inside the composting hall
  • Different lane widths and heights possible 
  • Batch or flow through operation possible. Optimized oxygen supply through pressure ventilation
  • Turners can either be driver operated or computer controlled
  • Transfer between lanes by transfer vehicle or concrete platform
  • Flexible plant design, less capital expenditure and lower operating costs
