The HEKA Favourite 168 has a capacity of 168 (on wooden trays) or 192 hen eggs (on plastic trays). This "good size" and very good value for money has lead to the fact that this machine is our best seller in this range.
The standard equipment includes: Fully automatic egg turning, humidity and temperature regulation, insulated glazing, interior lighting, 4 wooden incubating trays.

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.
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.
Processor-controls with complete regulation by computer
The reliable computer-controls feature a high- class functional range. Temperature and humidity are shown so that you can check the precise regulation of your incubator at any time. On the other hand, temperature, humidity, turning and cooling can be programmed with just a few key presses.
All incubators in the HEKA Favourite 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.
Wooden trays or plastic trays
Wooden trays feature a favourable price - because they are made of moisture-resistant (sauna)wood. These trays last for very many years with perfect stability and without becoming deformed. The plastic trays offer in addition the advantage of a hygienic easy-to-clean surface, of particular importance when our incubators are used in laboratories and research facilities, but also important for brooders, who are keen on cleanliness. Because the plastic trays are produced with a smaller frame yet achieve the same stability, they have a 15% higher capacity.
The incubator is equipped with the following as standard; an interior light, four wooden incubating trays of your choice, a water canister, a detailed manual and different connectors for turning any quantity of trays.
