BRINSEA - Takes the guesswork out of egg incubation
Octagon 20 Advance
The Octagon 20 Advance incubator builds on decades of success of earlier Octagon 20's with an all new intelligent design combining latest digital and materials technology with Brinsea's 30 years of experience. The result is an easy to use, accurate and high performance incubator with exactly the right controls to give the hatching results you need. The Octagon 20 Advance is also available in EX form which includes full automatic control of humidity. This flexibility and value mean the Octagon 20 series remains the ideal choice whether you are breeding macaws or geese, hens or peafowl. This extra option is available below. The specially designed control system is the heart of the Octagon 20 Advance. In normal mode it shows the incubation temperature and humidity to very high levels of accuracy. A simple menu allows the user to change the incubation settings. Features include high and low temperature alarm and choice of °C or °F. The menu also allows full control of humidity with the optional Advance Humidity Pump (please contact us to add to your order). The high quality incubator cabinet is entirely injection moulded from high grade ABS which makes it tough and easy to clean. The base is double skinned and foam filled to reduce heat loss leading to lower electricity consumption and better temperature distribution. The top of the incubator is clear allowing good visibility of the eggs and chicks. Air is circulated by a long life computer grade fan which, coupled with the unique grill with optimised air diffuser leads to extremely even air temperature throughout the egg chamber. Fresh air is controlled with a vent slider and humidity is provided by water in two reservoirs in the base. To accommodate eggs of different sizes the Octagon 20 Advance's removable egg tray is supplied with dividers which the user can position to suit their eggs and so maximise the number of eggs that can be held. Eggs from as small as finches to as large as geese can be incubated and a guide to the numbers of a range of popular species which will fit is give in the specification table. Eggs are turned during incubation as the whole incubator is automatically rocked from side to side every hour by the Autoturn Cradle included.
Brinsea have now incorporated a cooling option in all their Advance models of egg incubators for 2012 for proven increases in hatch rates. This feature turns the incubators 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.
