The Wind Turbine Ventilator

It’s time to talk about a sometimes overlooked feature of Envirolet® Composting Toilet Systems. The Wind Turbine Ventilator.

A 4” Wind Turbine Ventilator is included standard with all new Envirolet® Systems (except the Envirolet® MS10, which offers it as an option). This is something that others do not include standard or even offer.


Why is the Wind Turbine good?
The Wind Turbine adds performance by increasing evaporation of liquid from your composting system, especially when the power is not on in DC or AC units.

The Wind Turbine is also a great advantage to those who experience frequent power outages or will have occasional extra heavy use.

What happens if there is little or no wind?
The Wind Turbine Ventilator is of course not a sealed component. So, even when there is little or no wind, evaporation will still occur.

The Wind Turbine complements the composting toilet system by adding extra evaporation performance.

Can I add the Envirolet® Wind Turbine to another composting toilet system?
There are other compost systems than Envirolet®? To answer this outrageous question: yes. If you need some extra performance or are not getting good air flow then by all means add our turbine. (And regarding air flow, only Envirolet® has 2 Fans to provide efficient air flow and evaporation. Others have only 1 fan.)

What’s the 4 inch part refer to?
Our turbine has a 4” connection to attach to 4” rigid (vent) pipe.

What is it made of?
Aluminum. Or aluminium if you’re not from North America. Huh?
