HEKA Jumbo XL - Incubator for 1.360-1.500 Hen-Eggs or ca. 2.500 Bantam-Eggs

Product number: Jumbo XL
Weight: 125 kg
Ready for shipping
The HEKA Jumbo incubators are addressed to all those, you run a big poultry farm or want to start one. Even the smaller HEKA Jumbo XL offers a capacity of remarkable 1.360-1.500 hen-eggs. On request (surcharge of 600€) you can also get this incubator with water cooling system as it is serially installed in the incubators HEKA Favorit-Olymp 2200, 2100/S, 1500 and 1500/S (also described there). You can arrange this incubator in different variations, which you please choose above and which are explained below for making your decision for your right equipment as easy as possible.

1. Half-automatic or fully-automatic egg-turning

The continuously and reliably turning of the eggs
is necessary for successful brooding - at least
2-3 times per day in the 1st phase of breeding
(hen eggs: 18 days --> then 3 days hatching). If
you choose your HEKA-Incubator with half-auto-
matic egg-turning, you don't have to turn every
single egg, but you just have to push and pull
the trays. Inside the tray, the eggs lay on fluted
wooden bars, which theirselves lay on the left
and on the right on rubber-strap. By pushing
or pulling the trays, the bars of the tray turn
and so will also turn the eggs.

If you choose your HEKA-Incubator with full-
automatic egg-turning, you don't have to do the
work described above. Behind the incubator,
there is installed a 3-phase-turner motor
(exterior, covered), which is connected with the
trays by a push-rod and an aluminium
connector - the motor pushes and pulls the
trays automatically forward and backward. For
best success in brooding, all our incubators do
12 turnings per day. Of course, this turning can
be deactivated by a switch for hatching-phase.


2. Electronic regulation or processor-control-system

   With electronic regulation temperature is set by
   the silver adjusting knob and it's shown on the
   angle-thermometer on the right side of the
   incubator. Highly suitable for export-markets,
   because these electronics make it impassible for
   oscillations in power-supply, and all electronic
   components can be exchanged easily in case of

   The processor-control-system provides a
   pleasant "Plus" of comfort in handling. The
   brooding-temperature can be adjusted in one-
   tenths of a degree - both set-temperature actual
   temperature are shown simultaneously. Further,
   an alarm is included. You set the alarm-
   temperature digitally - if this temperature is
   reached, the alarm-control-light flashes up
                                                                                      (acoustical alarm on enquiry).

3. Double thermostat

A double thermostat brings an even higher level of safety
to your incubator. If the main thermostate should allow the
temperature in your incubator to rise too high because of
technical failure, the double thermostat switches off the
heating and prohibits damage to the eggs. This is not
really necessary with a high-class HEKA-incubator - but it
is a pleasant addition. In all incubators with electronic
regulation there is installed a membrane-regulation as
double thermostat, in all incubators with processor-
control-system the double thermostat is integrated in this
control-system. The value for the double thermostat is
preset by us - you don't have to reprogram any values,
but you can just start  brooding, when you get your


4. Cooling timer

   If you brood waterfowl, it is absolutely necessary to cool-down the
   eggs once a day up from the ~11th day (up to the hatching-
   phase). With incubators without cooling timer you have to do this
   by opening the door for 20-30 minutes. If you choose your HEKA-
   incubator equipped with a cooling timer, you don't have to operate
   this cooling by yourself (with the risk to forget closing the door),
   but the incubator itself deactivates the heating for your desired/set
   time, so that the temperature inside the incubator decreases. It is
   essential, that all other functions of the incubator remain enabled -
   only the heating is disabled.



5. Single glazing or double glazing

The lower insulation value of the single glazing is advanta-
geous in export-markets with hot surrounding temperatures,
because the incubator can lose temperature through the
door. But the disadvantage of steaming windows at higher
values of humidity, persist.

In middle- and north-european countries, the insulated
glazing is definitely the right choice. The insulation value is
much better, whereby the power-consumption decreases.
Further, insulated glazing begins to steam up just up from
~80% humidity - beyond those values, which are needed

The incubator is completely equipped with all the accessories, which are needed. Included is the interior lighting of the incubator, eight trays/hatching-trays of your choice, an hygrometer, a tripartite water basin, a detailed manual and further the accessories, which belong to your chosen equipment; i.e. an angle-thermometer, if you choose the electronic regulation.
Further, reasonable accessories, which are not included, could be a candling lamp for checking eggs on fecundity; more trays/hatching-trays (if needed) and the right disinfectant for cleaning/disinfecting the incubator after hatching (we recommend: Amo-Des).
