288 chicken egg incubator + 160 egg hatcher
HEKA-incubators with a separate hatcher allow maximum flexibility, enabling you to vary temperature and humidity in the incubator to ensure the very best hatching conditions prior to moving the eggs into the hatcher sited above the incubator.
With this model you could set around 145 chicken eggs, or 220 pheasant eggs every week, for continuous hatching. Once the eggs are moved to the hatcher you are able to create the best conditions for hatching, particularly the higher humidity that is so vital at this stage. The remaining eggs in the incubator can then still be brooded with lower humidity until they also are ready for the final 3 or 4 days of hatching and are transferred into the hatcher.
We particularly recommend having this separate hatcher when brooding poultry or game birds continuously, and for waterfowl, because the high humidity is extremely important for success in hatching. Both compartments are technically completely independent machines, but they operate as one associated harmonious unit.

Fully-automatic egg-turning for the incubation compartment.
Behind the incubator, there is a turning-motor (exterior, covered), which is connected with the trays by a push-rod and white connectors (powder-coated aluminium). The motor pushes and pulls the trays automatically forwards and backwards. For best success in brooding, all our incubators do 12 turnings per day. With connectors of different length, you can turn any number of trays. Of course, this turning can be reprogrammed or deactivated by you for the hatching-phase.
Fully-automatic humidification for both incubator and hatcher.
The incubator is equipped with a fully-automatic humidification system. It includes a water- canister, which is the water reservoir for the humidification. A float valve regulates the water supply from the canister to a water container with a heater. Every time while heating (continuously at heating up and in short impulses when set-temperature is reached), the water- heater is activated, which heats the water and evaporates it.This is a failure-free and reliable technique for best success in brooding. It's also possible to connect the incubator directly to your water line. If you request this, we then adjust your machine for this higher water pressure.
Microprocessor controlled temperature regulation for both incubator and hatcher.
To match the high-class cabin we install probably the most reliable control system on the market 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 HEKA incubators. Temperature, humidity, turning and cooling can be programmed with just a few key presses
Double glazing for both incubator and hatcher
All incubators in the HEKA Euro-Lux series are equipped with double glazing. The insulation value is much better in comparison with single glazing, and uses less energy. Also, insulated glazing does not begin to steam up until higher than ~80% humidity, and higher values are not normally required.
The incubator is completely equipped with all the accessories that are needed. Included is an interior light, four egg trays of your choice for the lower incubation compartment, and two uncovered hatching baskets for the upper hatcher, a detailed manual and different connectors for turning any quantity of trays in the incubation compartment.
