Macchinari platee compostaggio funghi

We manufacture machinery for compost facilities, from straw processing to production of blocks for both champignon and oyster mushrooms.

Our range of machinery can satisfy the most diverse production needs, depending on the size of structure and type of process. The larger capacity models are reinforced for more intensive and prolonged use.

All our machines are 100% “Made in ALPIE”, from product design through construction to final testing.

How to recognise an ALPIE machine

Strength and durability

We use almost exclusively stainless or hot-dip galvanised steel, with automatic lubrication systems for parts liable to wear.

Customisation

Thanks to the different models and optional extras, you can fabricate the machines to suit your objectives, right up to tailor-made customisation during fabrication.

Time savings

We give priority to solutions to boost efficiency by reducing the times and workforce required.

Autonomous control

Our machines are designed for ease of use and minimal maintenance. They also come with clear manuals with three-dimensional illustrations.

The compost used to cultivate button or champignon mushrooms (Agaricus Bisporus) is produced in successive phases involving preparation and mixing of the straw with other ingredients, fermentation (Phase 1), pasteurisation (Phase 2) and incubation (Phase 3).

To do this, large quantities of material must be mixed, wetted and moved from one production area to another.

ALPIE makes machines to perform various functions in the process to produce compost for champignon and exotic mushrooms (e.g. oyster mushrooms Pleurotus Ostreatus):

  • Machines for shredding the straw and mixing it with the other ingredients
  • Machines for loading the compost into the bunkers/tunnels
  • Machines for automatically emptying the compost from the tunnels
  • Tunnel net washers
  • Machines for packing the compost in blocks (for both champignon and oyster mushrooms)

Of course, we can’t explain all the details of the process here. You can find more information on the pages dedicated to the individual machines.
But we would like to invite you to find out more and count on us for whatever support you need.

In the meantime, welcome to the world of mushroom growing!
