Additional Information

The Octagon® 40 Eco combine the high quality cabinet and airflow systems of the Octagon®range with a proven and reliable electronic temperature control to provide reliable hatching results with minimum of fuss.

Temperature is measured using the purpose made liquid in glass thermometer that is supplied with the incubator and the incubation temperature adjusted to suit the eggs being incubated as listed in the user instructions. A flashing indicator shows that the incubation temperature is being controlled steadily. The Octagon® 40 is supplied complete with autoturn cradle.

Brinsea’s Octagon® 20 and 40 incubators have been popular with bird breeders for decades and the latest models provide a combination of performance and value whichever model you choose.

Cabinet 

The high quality incubator cabinets are entirely injection moulded from high grade ABS which makes them durable and easy to clean. The base is double skinned and foam filled to reduce heat loss meaning lower electricity consumption and better temperature distribution. The incubator tops are clear allowing good visibility of the eggs and chicks inside.

Humidity and ventilation 

Air is circulated by long life computer fans which, coupled with the unique grilles with optimised air diffusers, means extremely even air temperature throughout the egg chamber. Fresh air is controlled with a vent slider and humidity is provided by water in reservoirs in the base (unless the EX pump is used – Advance models only).

Egg Handling 

Egg turning is achieved by rocking the whole cabinet from side to side either by hand (hence the Octagon® shape) or with the automatic turning cradle which moves the incubator through 90° approximately once each hour. External egg turning keeps the incubator interior free from motors and mechanisms which makes cleaning easier. Autoturn cradles are supplied as standard with all Octagon® 40 models. To accommodate eggs of different sizes the two removable egg trays are supplied with dividers which the user can position to suit their eggs and maximize the number that can be held. Eggs from as small as finches to as large as geese can be incubated. The Octagon® 40s hold up to 48 hens eggs or equivalent.
