The HEKA Favourite 84 is the right choice for all breeders who want to incubate relatively small numbers but with a perfectly equipped plastic-incubator. The HEKA Favourite 84 is on the same high level as the bigger incubators in the Favourite Series but in its dimensions as compact as it is possible for a proper incubator. There are two trays each holding 42 chicken eggs if you choose wooden trays, or 48 eggs each in the plastic 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, two wooden incubating trays of your choice, a water canister, a detailed manual and different connectors for turning any quantity of trays.
