ECS has always been committed to providing robust compost control and monitoring technologies, continuous product evolution, and first-class customer support. This approach has caused ECS to lose some bids to lower cost providers. But over time, when support issues go unanswered, facility owners start looking for alternatives.
Full featured ECS pilot systems allow operators to run simultaneous batches with different control settings including aeration types (positive, negative, and reversing), retention times, and pile geometries.
With some 150+ technical service projects under our belt, we acknowledge that we are firstly a provider of technical services and secondly a manufacturer of composting systems. This makes sense in that a facility is only new once, but it should run for decades.
No other manufacturer has been designing/improving wireless composting temperature probes as long as Engineered Compost Systems (20 years), and no other wireless probe comes with comparable guaranteed or expected battery life for the RF TeleProbe™.

Once main power had been restored to their facility late that morning, they
discovered a lot of elect...
Naval Air Station (NAS) Whidbey Island installed a competitor’s (non-ECS) in-
vessel composting system in the 1990s. Technical support had been an issue for
some time, and in 2015 the vintage custom control system it came with died.
ECS won the bid to install new controls, VFDs, sensors, and motorized dampers to
control and monitor their eight ves...
The Ottawa Valley Waste Recovery Centre (OVWRC) in Pembroke, Ontario has been
composting green waste amended food waste in an ECS Containerized
In-Vessel system since 2001. The original CompTroller™ 1.0 automated aeration
control and monitoring system served them well for over 15 years. But between
OS legacy issues and part obsolescence, it was bec...
