Description

The Octagon Eco incubators are simple but high quality. They combine the same tough and insulted cabinet as the Octagon Advance incubators with simple proven electronic temperature control to give reliable hatching results of a wide range of species with minimum fuss.

Octagon Eco incubators control temperature with high accuracy with a proven proportional band electronic controller with easy tamper-proof adjustment. A flashing indicator shows that the incubation temperature is controlling steadily and temperature is monitored with a conventional but accurate liquid in glass thermometer.

Autorun cradle is optional with the Octagon 20 Eco and included with the Octagon 40 Eco.

Brinsea Octagon 40 Advance Incubator

Takes the guesswork out of egg incubation

For approximately 48 hen eggs (see comparison for other species)

Brinsea Octagon 40 Advance incubator

Includes Brinsea 3 Year Guarantee

The Octagon Advance incubators combine the high performance Octagon cabinet and egg handling with Brinsea’s Advance digital control system which puts the control of the incubation process firmly in the hands of the user and ensures reliable hatch rates, time after time.

In normal mode the display shows the incubation temperature (in °C or °F) and humidity to very high levels of accuracy. The simple menu allows the user to change incubation settings.

Brinsea have now incorporated a cooling option in all their Advance models of egg incubators for proven increases in hatch rates. This feature turns the incubator’s heater and low temperature alarm off for a selected period but keeps the fan running. After the cooling period is complete the incubator reverts to normal temperature and the alarm is automatically reset.

All Octagon Advance models are supplied complete with autorun cradle.

Humidity is a crucial factor in successful hatching and the EX versions of the Octagon Advance allow the user to set the humidity level which the incubator will automatically and accurately maintain.

Octagon Advance EX incubators are Octagon Advance incubators with the matching Humidity Pump module to maintain total control of the incubation humidity level and additional foam lined egg dividers to protect fragile or damaged eggs and eliminate the effects of jolts.

The standard Octagon Advance incubators provide a readout of incubation humidity but requires the user to alter humidity to achieve the ideal average level. The EX versions with the Humidity Pump effectively maintain the humidity level precisely at the level the user sets irrespective of changes in room humidity within practical limits. This overcomes problems that can commonly lead to eggs failing to hatch – especially in the latest stages of incubation. The Humidity Pump includes an external water reservoir eliminating the chances of water in the incubator harbouring bacteria.

The Humidity Pump module is designed to work seamlessly with Octagon Advance incubators and can be purchased later as an upgrade from an Octagon Advance to an Octagon Advance EX.

About Brinsea's Octagon Incubators

Cabinet

The high quality incubator cabinets are entirely injection moulded from high grade ABS which makes them durable and easy to clean. The base is double skinned and foam filled to reduce heat loss meaning lower electricity consumption and better temperature distribution. The incubator tops are clear allowing good visibility of the eggs and chicks inside.

Humidity and ventilation

Air is circulated by long life computer fans which, coupled with the unique grilles with optimised air diffusers, means extremely even air temperature throughout the egg chamber. Fresh air is controlled with a vent slider and humidity is provided by water in reservoirs in the base (unless the EX pump is used – Advance models only).

Egg handling

To accommodate eggs of different sizes the removable egg trays are supplied with dividers which the user can position to suit their eggs and maximize the number that can be held. Eggs from as small as finches to as large as geese can be incubated. See comparison table below for a guide to the numbers of a range of popular species which will fit each incubator.

Egg turning is achieved by rocking the whole cabinet from side to side either by hand (hence the Octagon shape) or with the automatic turning cradle which moves the incubator through 90° approximately once each hour. External egg turning keeps the incubator interior free from motors and mechanisms which makes cleaning easier.

Protected by Biomaster

Biomaster antimicrobial additive is proven to reduce bacterial growth by 99.99% and 100% safe for eggs, chicks and humans. Protects hatches from microbial transfer by cross contamination helping to reduce unexplained hatching failures.
