LUMIA 8 EXPERT Incubator Patented automatic digital In HEAT-RESISTANT ABS with BIOMASTER.
LUMIA 8 EXPERT is designed and built to better meet farmyard poultry and valuable species breeding requirements.
Thanks to the use of innovative materials and a functional and ergonomic design, LUMIA 8 EXPERT is an indispensable instrument that is easy to use, both for the professional breeder and for all new breeding enthusiasts who want to try breeding farmyard animals for the first time, with expectations of a good result.
LUMIA 8 EXPERT is covered by a double patent:
A. SPECIFIC DESIGN and MODEL
B. TECHNICAL SOLUTIONS under three different design aspects:
1) UNIVERSAL EGG TRAY SYSTEM
The first professional egg tray in the world capable of holding any type of egg vertically, from goose eggs to quail eggs. In every single lodging it is possible to 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 in old incubators, now technologically obsolete.
2) PATENTED AUTOMATIC HUMIDIFICATION SYSTEM
Thanks to the automatic SIRIO humidifier, the desired humidity level is set using buttons on an intuitive LCD display. SIRIO then pumps water into the incubator to achieve and maintain the right humidity level, regardless of environmental humidity changes, thus optimising the hatching rate of the incubated eggs.
SIRIO consists of a dual-tube peristaltic pump controlled by a computerised hygrostat with a modified PID algorithm. This receives information from a latest-generation humidity sensor (Sensirion Swiss technology) with a precision of +/- 1 % (the most accurate in its class), which measures the humidity in the incubator throughout the entire incubation cycle with extreme precision. Once the microprocessor has obtained the information from the sensor, it activates the peristaltic pump to supply small drops of water, which evaporate to allow control of the humidity. As it approaches the set value, the microprocessor slows down the flow of water from the pump until the value is reached.
This PATENTED intelligent system keeps the humidity level stable with absolute precision.
During operation, SIRIO displays the actual humidity value inside the incubator and the value previously set by the user.
AUTONOMY UNTIL THE HATCHING: the desire of every owner of an automatic incubator... The fully automated incubation process without the need for periodic checks and top ups. With the use of SIRIO, properly fed with a tank of water, you can finally stop worrying about checking the water level. Even incubating goose eggs, for 30 consecutive days there will be no need to top up and check the water levels, thus allowing you to have the coveted AUTONOMY UNTIL THE HATCHING. All this is absolutely not allowed with the classic tank humidifiers that, instead, must be constantly top-up with water every 2 - 3 days.
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.
INCUBATOR STRUCTURE IN HEAT-RESISTANT ABS WITH BIOMASTER ANTIBACTERIAL ADDITIVE: with the precise aim of reducing heat loss during incubation and hatching, LUMIA 8 EXPERT is made of a specific HEAT-RESISTANT ABS polymer with high mechanical resistance, which gives the machine a tough and robust design. A specific BIOMASTER antibacterial silver ion additive is added to the material to prevent the harmful growth of bacteria on the machine surfaces during operation, with consequential bacterial infections to the embryo, which is one of the main causes of death when hatching chicks.
ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE CONTROL: a sophisticated electronic temperature control device in the incubator allows the user to keep the microclimate inside constant, with an accuracy of 0.1°C. The electronic system keeps the set temperature uniform despite the external environmental temperature, thus ensuring embryonic growth without decompensation and with higher hatching results!
The system works on the principle of feedback: the temperature taken by the NTC sensor is digitally processed by an advanced Proportional-Integral-Derivative (PID) algorithm, which eliminates the oscillations that are typical of the simplest adjustments, thus offering quick response and good temperature stability, equal to control solutions used on much more sophisticated equipment.
EGG TURNING SYSTEM: LUMIA 8 EXPERT automatically turns the incubated eggs for the entire incubation period. The microprocessor inside is programmed to regularly change the inclination degree of the eggs, always varying it differently, exactly as it happens inside a nest.
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.
NON-STOP POWER SUPPLY: the LUMIA 8 EXPERT, powered at 12 V, is supplied with an extra cable that can be connected to a vehicle cigarette lighter.
If there is a power cut in the house, this device can be connected to any 12 V socket, such as that in a vehicle, to prevent the incubation process from being interrupted.
LIMITED ENERGY CONSUMPTION: The limited requirements of the device are an effective response to the growing demand for energy saving and environmental protection.
LUMIA 8 EXPERT: A “life generator” that, at the moment, represents the highest technological level you can ask of an incubator of its class.
