Premise: SIRIO, the only one of its kind of which PATENTED, works to maintain a humidity rate previously set inside the incubator, exploiting the benefit of natural evaporation, as occurs in industrial incubators, therefore nothing to do with obsolete ultrasonic humidifiers now banned from industrial incubators: the embryo during its incubation needs sterile natural water vapor and not ultrasonic nebulizations! Notion induced by all the genetic laboratories of the world.
The stability of relative humidity during the incubation process is one of the fundamental elements to ensure a good percentage of hatching and the birth of healthy and viable chicks. With this goal, the SIRIO automatic humidifier was designed and built, a device that allows, without any operator intervention, to introduce water into the incubator in a totally automatic way.
Thanks to SIRIO, the desired humidity percentage can be set using the keys located on an intuitive LCD display, once this operation has been performed, SIRIO will pump water into the incubator (taking it from a bottle that the user will have previously prepared) in order to reach it and stabilize it regardless of the variations in ambient humidity, optimizing the percentage of hatching of the incubated eggs.
SIRIO consists of a double duct peristaltic pump controlled by a computerized hygrostat which, thanks to a modified PID algorithm, receives the information detected by a connected latest generation humidity sensor (Sensirion of Swiss technology) with an accuracy of +/- 1% ( the most accurate in its class), which measures the humidity inside the incubator with extreme precision during the entire incubation cycle. Once the microprocessor has obtained the information from the sensor, it activates the peristaltic pump in order to deliver small drops of water which, evaporating, allow the regulation of humidity. As the set value approaches, the microprocessor gives the pump the order to slow the water flow down to the set value.
This intelligent PATENTED system keeps the humidity percentage stable with absolute precision.
During operation, SIRIO shows on the display the real humidity value present inside the incubator and the value previously set by the user.
SIRIO satisfies the need for automatic humidity control of any incubator, of any brand, with a capacity of up to 500 eggs without making any modifications (perforations) to the bodies, modifications that would void the guarantee of the same.
AUTONOMY UNTIL CLOSING: the desire of every owner of an automatic incubator… The completely 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 forget about running to check the water level. Even if you incubate 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 desired AUTONOMY UNTIL THE CLOSING.
All this is absolutely not allowed with classic tank humidifiers which, on the other hand, must be constantly supplied with water every 2 – 3 days.
SIRIO: comfort, safety and technology at your service.
QUESTION: what is the difference between the ultrasonic humidifier and your dynamic one?
ANSWER: The principle of ultrasonic humidifiers is very simple: like the room humidifiers we use in our homes, they do nothing but make the water vibrate, making it nebulized in the form of micro-particles, and therefore volatile; micro-particles that also carry bacteria, pathogenic microorganisms and limescale with them!
Consequently, the nebulized micro-particles, depositing on the eggs, cause the bacteria to penetrate inside the egg leading to the death of the embryo during the hatching phase due to infections or diseases, while the limestone deposits on the shell of the egg. egg causing the obstruction of the pores responsible for the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide between the embryo and the environment outside the egg, with a consequent decrease in oxygenation of the embryo (and relative weakening).
Furthermore, it must not be forgotten that after 4/5 incubation cycles with an ultrasonic humidifier, all the substances carried by the micro-particles of nebulized water go to soil (see the limestone, which is also difficult to remove) the interior of the incubator, the probes, parts of its structure, fan bearings, etc. causing its progressive deterioration with consequent malfunctions of the incubator.
Instead, with dynamic evaporation, a principle used by SIRIO, humidity is produced directly by the evaporation of water.
Consequently, this steam, being free of limescale, does not bring any deposits on the egg shell, nor on the internal components or even on the structure of the incubator, while the water particles, as sterile, are free of bacteria.
Furthermore, the ultrasonic humidifiers, to transport the nebulized water inside the incubator, are helped by a small fan, consequently oxygen is also introduced into the incubator, thus altering the concentration of CO2, in fact with the increase of oxygen its concentration decreases, all this is not optimal for incubation and hatching as the shells do not weaken sufficiently.
IMPORTANT NOTION: We must keep in mind a very important factor for an excellent hatching, both the embryo and the structure of the egg shell need an adequate level of carbon dioxide (C02), which must be about 2,000 ppm in the phase of incubation and about 5,000 ppm in the last 3 days prior to hatching. The C02 acting as acid oxide weakens the entire structure of the shell during the entire incubation phase, making it practically more friable, in addition, maintaining a value of about 5000 ppm during hatching, the chick, by survival instinct, is stimulated and forced to break the shell.
For these series of reasons, BOROTTO does not recommend the use of ultrasonic humidifiers, but to use methods that apply natural dynamic evaporation, as occurs in industrial hatcheries and in nature under a hen.
QUESTION: Why does SIRIO use the peristaltic water pumping system?
ANSWER: The classic centrifugal pumps have limescale problems and become clogged easily. For this reason we have designed SIRIO with a peristaltic pump, requiring no maintenance, it can work safely with tap water.
