Borotto Sirio - automatic humidifier for all incubators (not just Borotto)


The stability of relative humidity during the incubation process is one of the key element in ensuring a good hatching rate and the birth of healthy and viable chicks. With this goal in mind, we have designed and built the SIRIO automatic humidifier  which allows water to enter the incubator automatically  without any operator intervention.

This device, designed for Borotto machines, but adaptable to any brand of incubator, allows  an adequate level of humidity during incubation and hatching to be maintained, regardless of  ambient humidity changes, enhancing the percentage of successful hatchings of incubated eggs.

SIRIO includes a double-head  peristaltic pump controlled by a microcomputer that, thanks to a modified PID algorithm, continuously  controls  water delivery. A connected latest-generation electronic sensor (Swiss-made Sensirion), precisely measures the humidity within the machine during the entire incubation cycle,  and this absolute stability is guaranteed for more than ten years.

SIRIO draws from an external water reserve, such as a normal bottle or small tank,  entering the amount of water required to ensure the ideal level of humidity as previously set on its liquid crystal  display. As the water is supplied, the display shows the rotation of the motor, providing direct visual information about the device’s operation.

 

SIRIO satisfies the requirements of the automatic humidity control of  incubators with capacities  of up to 500 eggs.

 

Please follow the enclosed instructions carefully.

 

  • Please note that humidity pumps will struggle to regulate humidity when outside "relative" humidity conditions are high. Just as an incubator will struggle on really hot days all humidity pumps will not be effective on really humid days.
