The Octagon incubator Range – the latest technology in a familiar shape
The Octagon 20 Eco incubator is a simple but high quality egg incubator using the same tough and insulated cabinet as the Octagon 20 Advance coupled to a simple proven electronic temperature control to give reliable hatching results of a wide range of species with minimum fuss. There is no facility for humidity measurement control. This is an incubator for the cost-conscious and those who require simplicity over features.
Egg capacity of 24 hens eggs or equivalent
Simple and accurate proportional band electronic temperature control
Temperature factory preset at 99.5 F with easy tamper-proof adjustment
Flashing temperature indicator andconventionalbutaccurateÂ liquid in glass thermometer
Fan assisted air circulation proof adjustment
Good visibility of the eggs
Tough and hygienic cabinet
Insulated for low energy use and optimal temperature distribution
The Octagon 20 Eco controls temperature with high accuracy using a proven proportional band electronic controller with easy tamper-proof adjustment. A flashing indicator shows that the incubation temperature is being controlled steadily and temperature is monitored with a purpose made liquid in glass thermometer.
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.
Humidity and ventilation.
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 Ecos 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 as small as finches to as large as geese can be incubated and a capacity guide for a range of popular species is given in the specification table. Eggs are turned during incubation as the whole incubator is rocked from side to side hence the Octagonal cabinet ends. Turning is performed automatically by the auto turn cradle supplied with the unit which turns the eggs hourly.
