LUMIA 8 really is an amazing little incubator! It's the perfect starter incubator for small batches.

It is the brand new model from Borotto and is a technologically advanced, high performance machine. Its elegant design with “smart” technology makes this incubator smart and easy to use and one of the best in its class.

 

FEATURES:

EGG TURNING SYSTEM: LUMIA 8 automatically turns the incubated eggs for the entire incubation period. The microprocessor inside is programmed to regularly (and randomly) change the inclination degree of the eggs, always varying it differently, exactly as it happens inside a nest.

STATIC HUMIDIFICATION SYSTEM: the humidity needed for embryonic growth is generated by static effect. There are special grooves on the bottom of the incubator, which are designed to generate the proper level of humidity during the entire incubation period.

MAXIMUM VISIBILITY INSIDE: the incubator lid, also in heat-resistant ABS, is entirely transparent to ensure full and constant internal visibility, without ever having to open the incubator during incubation or hatching. This is perfect for classrooms or home use to ensure everyone can watch as the chicks are hatching!

LIMITED ENERGY CONSUMPTION: The limited requirements of the device are an effective response to the growing demand for energy saving and environmental protection.

FILL THE WATER FROM THE OUTSIDE: This amazing feature is incorporated in all of the Borotto small incubators. Without having to open the lid to add water the temperature and humidity can stay constant throughout the entire incubation process.

PATENTS 

LUMIA 8 is covered by a double patent:
A. SPECIFIC DESIGN and MODEL  
B. TECHNICAL SOLUTIONS under three different design aspects:

1. UNIVERSAL EGG HOLDER ALVEOLUS SYSTEM: first egg holder in the world that can vertically hold any type of egg: from goose to quail ones. Each cup can hold: 1 hen egg (or larger size species) or 4 small eggs, up to a total of 32 quail eggs. An innovative system in egg logistics that contains the most number of eggs in a limited space, thus drastically reducing energy consumption.
NOTE: the vertical position of the eggs during incubation is the same used in the latest generation of industrial incubators. It always guarantees significantly higher hatching percentages compared with horizontally incubated eggs.

2. WATER FILLING UP FROM OUTSIDE, WITH “DUST STOP” PLUGS: it is filled up through two fillers on the outside of the incubator, which drastically cuts down humidity loss that would otherwise be wasted by opening the machine (models with an internal basin have to be opened). The outside fillers are closed with special “Dust Stop” plugs, which are made of ABS polymer with BIOMASTER antibacterial silver ion additive, to prevent the water from being contaminated by germs and dust, thereby keeping the area around the egg cleaner and more hygienic.


3. INSULATED VENTILATION: internal ventilation is supplied by an axial fan that sucks air from the centre and carries it onto the side walls. Moreover, this air movement, together with a refined aerodynamic design, besides guaranteeing a better temperature and humidity uniformity inside the incubator, generates a warm air barrier that ensures effective heat insulation.
