HatchTech Pre-Humidification Unit Ensures Uniform and Superior Chick Quality
Dr. Inge van Roovert-Reijrink M.Sc.
The HatchTech Pre-Humidification unit is positioned behind the air handling unit, before the air enters the incubator. In the air handling unit, the air temperature is increased and the Pre-Humidification unit adds water droplets of 1 micron to the air to increase relative humidity. When the air has passed the air handling unit and the Pre-Humidification unit, it has always a temperature of 25ºC and a relative humidity of 50%. The humidification system in the incubator itself is still needed to fine tune the relative humidity, but the use of the humidification system is minimized.
