1. Fully-automatic egg-turningAt the rear of the incubator, there is a turning-
motor connected with the trays by a push-rod
and the white connectors (powder-coated
aluminium) - the motor pushes and pulls the
trays automatically forward and backward at
the rate of 12 turnings per day. With connec-
tors of different length, you can turn any num-
ber of trays. Of course, this turning can be de-
activated by a switch for the hatching-phase.
2. Processor controlled temperature regulation
To match the high-class cabin we install the
probably most reliable controls on the market
(besides our HEKA-microprocessor controls).
With an absolutely precise temperature
regulation, this control has a failure rate of
under 0,1% in the first 5 years - a value, which
confirms the incomparable high quality of
3. Double glazing
All incubators of the series "HEKA-Turbo" are
equipped with double glazing. The insulation value is
much better in comparison to single glazing, whereby the
power-consumption decreases. Further, insulated glazing
begins to steam up just up from ~80% humidity - beyond
those values, which are needed normally.
4. Wooden trays or plastic traysThe wooden trays feature a favourable price - because
they are made of moisture-resistant (sauna-)wood,
these trays achieve a long life with perfect stability
without any deformations.
The plastic trays in addition offer the advantage of a
hygienically easy-to-clean surface: especially for the
usage of our incubators in laboratories and research
facilities an inestimable advantage - but equally for
brooders, who are keen on cleanliness. Because the
plastic trays are produced with a smaller frame (at the same stability), they offer a 15%
higher capacity - an optimal price-performance ratio!
5. Top-Version with plastic trays
- computer-control with highest precision and reliability
- control with storage-mode for collecting incubating-eggs
- special-ventilator with nearly 0 specific heat
- plastic trays with higher capacity and nearly endless lifetime
The Top-Version contents a lot of small advantages, which might make the difference in decisive moments. The computer-control of the Top-Version regulates the temperature with highest precision and goes straight to incubating-temperature, when you start the incubator (or after having opened the door for re-filling water, candling etc.). Further, the control has a storage-mode: by pressing the set-button the heating is completely deactivated. You can use all other features, so that you can collect/store incubating-eggs in the best possible way: you generate high humidity with the water-bowls, the eggs are turned by the fully-automatic turning - and thanks to the special-ventilator the temperature inside the incubator stays at circa room-temperature. This special-ventilator moreover brings an decisive advantage, if you (must) incubate at/in higher room-temperatures. Normal ventilators become warm (specific heat) - together with the specific heat of the eggs it can happen (depending on the positioning of the air-vents) up from room-temperature of ~25°C, that the temperature inside the incubator rises - without any heating of the incubator. With these special-ventilators this happens only above 30°C room-temperature and thus is nearly impossible. Further, in this version the trays are made of plastic - longlasting for decades like the whole incubator.
6. Eco-Version with wooden trays
- processor-control with adjusting-phase at start
- normal-ventilator with specific-heat
- wooden trays with slightly less capacity
Eco-Version without the advantages of the top-version like described above. The adjusting-phase lasts for ca. 30 minutes - but this has no negative impact to the incubating-eggs. Normally you have absolutely the same huge hatching-success.

AccessoriesThe incubator is completely equipped with all the accessories, which are needed. Included is the interior lighting of the incubator, two trays/hatching-trays of your choice, an hygrometer, a tripartite water basin, a detailed manual and different connectors for turning any quantity of trays.
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).
