The Octagon 20 Advance incubator builds on decades of success of earlier Octagon 20's with an all new intelligent design combining latest digital and materials technology with Brinsea's 30 years of experience. The result is an easy to use, accurate and high performance incubator with exactly the right controls to give the hatching results you need.

The Octagon 20 Advance is also available in EX form which includes full automatic control of humidity. This flexibility and value mean the Octagon 20 series remains the ideal choice whether you are breeding macaws or geese, hens or peafowl.

The specially designed control system is the heart of the Octagon 20 Advance. In normal mode it shows the incubation temperature and humidity to very high levels of accuracy. A simple menu allows the user to change the incubation settings. Features include high and low temperature alarm and choice of °C or °F. The menu also allows full control of humidity with the optional Advance Humidity Pump (see Octagon 20 Advance EX).

The high quality incubator cabinet is entirely injection moulded from high grade ABS which makes it tough and easy to clean. The base is double skinned and foam filled to reduce heat loss leading to lower electricity consumption and better temperature distribution. The top of the incubator is clear allowing good visibility of the eggs and chicks.

Air is circulated by a long life computer grade fan which, coupled with the unique grill with optimised air diffuser leads to extremely even air temperature throughout the egg chamber. Fresh air is controlled with a vent slider and humidity is provided by water in two reservoirs in the base.

To accommodate eggs of different sizes the Octagon 20 Advance's removable egg tray is supplied with dividers which the user can position to suit their eggs and so maximise the number of eggs that can be held. Eggs from as small as finches to as large as geese can be incubated and a guide to the numbers of a range of popular species which will fit is give in the specification table. Eggs are turned during incubation as the whole incubator is automatically rocked from side to side every hour by the Autoturn Cradle included.

Improved control for valuable and hard-to-incubate eggs.

Humidity is a crucial factor in the success (or otherwise) of eggs and the (Optional)EX version of the Octagon 20 Advance puts accurate control of humidity in the hands of the user.

The Octagon 20 Advance EX is an Octagon 20 Advance incubator with the matching Humidity Pump module to maintain total control of the incubation humidity level and additional foam lined egg dividers to protect fragile or damaged eggs and remove the any effects of jolts from the turning system.

The standard Octagon 20 Advance provides a readout of incubation humidity but requires the user to alter humidity to achieve the ideal average level. The EX version with the Humidity Pump effectively maintains the humidity level precisely at the level the user sets irrespective of changes in room humidity and so overcomes problems that can commonly lead to eggs failing to hatch – especially in the latest stages of incubation. The Humidity Pump includes an external water reservoir eliminating  the chances of water in the incubator harbouring bacteria.

The Humidity Pump module is designed to work seamlessly with the Octagon 20 Advance and can be purchased later as an upgrade from Octagon 20 Advance to Octagon 20 Advance EX.

Brinsea have now incorporated a cooling option in all their Advance models of egg incubators for 2012 for proven increases in hatch rates. This feature turns the incubator's heater and low temperature alarm off for a selected period but keeps the fan running. After the cooling period is complete the incubator reverts to normal temperature and the alarm is automatically reset.

Now protected by Biomaster antimicrobial additive: proven to reduce bacterial growth by 99.99% and 100% safe for eggs, chicks and humans. Protects hatches from microbial transfer by cross contamination helping to reduce unexplained hatching failures.
