Micromus re-design

Tue, 07/27/2010 - 13:25 — Compost Stu

The re-designed levelling device in the micromus has now been installed and appears to be working well. It consists of a heavy re-bar with raking forks welded onto the end that sits in the compost chamber. It's fulcrum is where it passes through the wall of the chamber so it extends outwards, where it is easily manipulated from. It had to be heavy enough to rake the dense top part of the pile. The Micromus is still odour free, even after three lots of tenants!!



One year anniversary of the Micromus prototype

Wed, 06/16/2010 - 18:08 — Compost Stu

It's been one year now since I installed the Micromus at the trial site in Barkers Vale. The compost chamber is now full and working well, odour free. The levelling device needs some modification to work effectively. With the bulking agent (hardwood sawdust), the compost was too heavy for the device to push it down the slope. I have raked the heap twice in the last year, using the access hatch in the rear of the chamber. The compost is moist and rich, with breakdown of paper and faeces complete. There is as yet little evidence of macro invertebrates in the heap.

Stu's new loo

Sun, 08/30/2009 - 10:23 — Compost Stu

After nearly two years in the research and development phase, the first prototype of the Micromus waterless composting toilet is now undergoing trialling. The design incorporates many new features and a simplicity that has few rivals. The Micromus is a continuous reaction type toilet, with a single composting chamber and vestibule similar to those in the Minimus design. The underfloor height requirement is only 700mm, making it one of the lowest WCT designs yet. Key to it's performance is a simple yet ingenious mechanism to prevent "pyramiding", a phenomenon common in other similar designs.



Someone grease the wheels please
