 A.B. Houbara Type 12volt dc Portable Incubator

 $2,420 (includes GST)

Technical Specifications:                                 

Specially designed for use transporting Eggs needing to be incubated during transit. It can be used as a standby unit during mains supply failure.

The A.B.Houbara Type 12v DC Portable Incubator has been developed to provide a robust cabinet to cradle delicate and rare eggs whilst providing conditions required to sustain embryonic development. The units’ construction will conserve heat and thus electrical energy from a vehicle or battery supply. Being a Moving-air Incubator, the air is circulated by a fan in the bottom of the inner incubation area, the air is drawn over the heated sides, and upwards to enter the egg area. This gives an even air flow throughout the incubating area. The sides of the incubator are aluminium and the egg holders are PVC plastic, mesh floored trays, in which the eggs are held in size specific trays, built to suit each order.

The Incubator operates from 12v DC supply, via a special lead with a cigar lighter plug fitting, or a similar lead which has crocodile clips for use on a battery. The 4 power resistor heaters are closely regulated by the latest microprocessor thermostat housed in a control box in the front of the cabinet. A full range of temperatures can be obtained via the press button adjustment panel on the front of the control box. (2O.O°C - 37.O°C). (Note; maintaining incubation temperatures are subject to an ambient of 1O°C/5O°F or more) The cabinet is constructed of epoxy coated 9mm, 5 ply timber with 25mm high insulation layers. A strong integrated carrying handle is fitted across the top of the cabinet.  Access is via the lift up hinged lid. The inner case has sides of aluminium, aluminium floor. No Ventilation holes are provided on this model as there would to greater heat loss, resulting is excessive power consumption

Cabinet size 355mm x 355mm x 330mm, integrated handle and steel lockable latches

Incubation area = 3 trays, each 240mm wide, 240mm deep, 65mm high.

Power consumption: 52.9 watts @ 12 volts, 4.45 Amps at start up, reducing to typically 2.5amps at operating temperature. (dependant on ambient temperature)

Temperature control by microprocessor controller and pt100 class A sensor with a system accuracy of +/-0.3 degrees C or better

Single 60mm air circulation fan ensure even temperatures throughout the egg chamber

Supplied with leads to connect to an auto cigar lighter and clips for a 12v battery
