The Nicholson Soil Sterilisers are designed for continuous operation.
Untreated soil is bucketed into a hopper, and for best results the soil is normally graded to below 40mm. An auger feeds a rotating drum with the heater inside, by adjusting the speeds the temperature can be varied from 40c to 85c. Assume diesel fuel usage with sandy soils at 2 litres cu/m and 4 litres cu/m for peat soils, figures can be affected by ambient temperature and moisture etc. Electric variable speeds are fitted throughout the soil steriliser to maintain accurate output and heat settings. Sterilisers are built with in-feed hopper and discharge elevator and in capacities of 5 to 60 cubic metres per hour. Select your fuel choice from gas, diesel, or bio fuel.
The Soil Steriliser is also useful for soil dehydrating
