Borotto Lumia Egg Incubator

by Borotto

Benefits of the Lumia Automatic Incubator

  • A small, entry-level incubator with the latest technological features developed for professional incubators
  • Perfect for backyard chicken keepers, small-scale breeders and schools
  • The automatic egg rotation, temperature control and humidity creation save time for busy breeders
  • Suitable for a wide range of birds including chickens, pheasants, guinea fowl, quail, partridges,
  • Fitted with a clear plastic lid so that you can watch the eggs hatch
  • Hatches eggs from multiple breeds in the same tray - hatch geese next to quail without adjustment
  • Includes technological innovations to improve hatch rates
  • AI temperature control compensates for external fluctuations in temperature
  • External water reservoirs mean that the incubator never needs to be opened, maintaining humidity and preventing contamination
  • Made from heat-resistant ABS to maintain temperature
  • Biomaster silver ion additive prevents the growth of harmful bacteria on incubator surfaces, improving hatch rates
  • Comes with a vehicle cigarette lighter adaptor in the case of transport or a power outage

Prevent contamination

Bacterial contamination decreases hatch rate and chick viability. The Lumia 8 incubator is made from ABS plastic with Biomaster silver ion technology, proven to prevent the growth of bacteria. External water reservoirs reduce the risk of contamination and are fitted with “dust plugs” to prevent dirt or germs entering. The Lumia 8 keeps the area around the egg more hygienic, improving the hatch.

Maintain temperature and humidity

Lumia incubators incorporate all of the latest features to maintain constant temperature and humidity, and to prevent any heat loss. Heat-resistant ABS and insulated ventilation maintain uniformity of temperature throughout the unit. The incubator design creates ideal levels of static humidity throughout the entire incubation period.

Artificial intelligence and microcomputer control

The sophisticated thermostat integrates AI, offering industrial-standard temperature control with an accuracy of +/- 0.1 oC. The temperature is taken by an NTC sensor which uses an advanced Proportional-Integral-Derivative (PID) algorithm to compensate for external temperature and prevent oscillations when adjustments are made.

Energy efficient

Hatch the largest number of eggs in a small space, reducing energy consumption. Made of heat-resistant ABS and equipped with insulated ventilation, Lumia incubators conserve heat for energy efficiency. Combined with AI temperature control and the external water reservoirs, the Lumia 8 is a high-performance machine that meets the growing demand for environmentally friendly products.
