The Lifeline Pet Supplies Puppy Kitten Pet Incubator Icu with Digital Humidity System
The incubator itself before adding any of the additional options includes the following:
1 - Lifeline Pet Supplies Puppy Kitten Pet Incubator Icu Housing - BPA free, acid-free, PVC free, lignin free, and recycle #5 making them safe for puppies, kittens, and other small pets. We use pre-fabricated housings which allows us to provide a cost-effective unit that is both portable and affordable. This lightweight design utilizes a two-part assembly. The tray has 2 locking mechanisms on each side and can easily be removed to clean and sterilize.
1 - PTC Forced Air Heater Fan - This unit uses a PTC forced air heater fan that distributes heat evenly throughout the incubator. The PTC forced air heater fan design pulls filtered outside room air into the unit and then heats that air circulating the fresh heated air throughout the unit. Because the unit is constantly circulating fresh air there is virtually no chance of carbon dioxide build-up inside the unit. The forced air technology used in this unit is similar to that of units priced 2-3 times higher.
1 - Heater Fan Protection Cover - This protection cover completely covers the entire heater and electrical connections preventing any animal from coming into contact with the heater or electrical wires controlling the heater fan. We take safety seriously and want you to understand we care about the animals you place inside this unit.
1 - Digital Temperature Controller Box - This newly designed digital temperature controller box uses state of the art technology to precisely control the temperature within the incubator. The controller allows precise independent control of both the PTC Heater Fan "Heating" and the Overheat Protection Fan "Cooling" independently. The digital temperature controller box includes instructions and recommended starting temperature settings on the top for quick reference, color-coded connections for heating and cooling allowing simple error-proof connections to the heater fan and the overheat protection fan. The digital temperature controller box includes our new slide-n-lock design which allows for easy removal of the controller box(es) from the incubator. This is perfect as it allows you to use the box to control a heating lamp or pad in a whelping box or similar area when the animals inside transition from the incubator. The slide-n-lock design also allows you to easily remove the box if it were in need of repair drastically reducing shipping costs and transit times that would occur in shipping the entire incubator back for service. A 6 ft power cord is provided with the controller box. The box also includes a 10 amp 250v fuse installed and one additional replacement fuse found in the power connection plate.
1 - Digital Humidity System - The digital humidity system included with this incubator provides precise digital humidity control inside the incubator. The digital humidity controller engages or disengages the external humidity pump automatically keeping the humidity inside the incubator at the desired range. Humidity is critical for most animals to keep them from dehydrating in elevated temperatures. The controller connections are now color-coded for ease of use and error-free installation. You simply plug in our humidity system per instructions, fill the water reservoir with distilled water & you are ready to add humidity to the incubator. The flexible and expandable tubing allows you to place the humidity system up to 5 feet away from your unit. When using our incubator you simply plug the tubing into the humidity port on the side of the incubator (front right closest to the door) - connections provided. The humidity pump system has auto-shutoff protection that will shut down the pump if you run out of water. This will prevent the motor from running dry and burning up. The digital humidity system includes 1 - Digital Humidity Controller Box with Slide-N-Lock technology 110-120v (color-coded connections & fused power connection) and 1 - Humidity Pump with fill bottle, tubing, and attachments. (Pump has auto-shutoff protection). Please Note: You should only use distilled water in the humidity pump. You will void the manufacturer warranty if you use any other type of water or additives to this pump.
1 - Overheat Protection Fan - The overheat protection fan provides the capability to protect the unit from overheating. It also allows independent control over air circulation as the animals placed inside get older. This allows you to increase the number of air exchanges in the unit and provides a variety of uses for the unit. Another interesting feature of the overheat protection fan is you can use it to dehumidify when the animals inside are nearing the end of the incubation period.
2 - Filtered Fan Guards - Dual filtered fan guards filter the outside air and protect the unit from dust and contaminants. There is one filtered fan guard above the PTC heater fan found on the top of the unit and another filtered fan guard is found on the overheat protection fan at the back of the unit.
2 - Built-In Cup Holders - The two cup holders are able to fold down and adjust. This allows you to use a cup(s) of water with a sponge or rag inside or you may also use humidor jars that will evaporate providing manual control of humidity inside the unit.
1 - Humidity Connection Port - The humidity connection port is found on the right-hand side closest to the door. It allows you to connect the humidity tubing from the pump included in the digital humidity system. The black plug can easily be removed so you can connect directly to the humidity pump or you can also just remove the black plug for additional air circulation as needed.
1 - Nebulizer Connection Port - The nebulizer connection port is to be used with our Nebulizer Connection Pack and Nebulizer pump (both purchased separately). This connection allows you to connect a nebulizer pump to the machine utilizing it as a nebulizing chamber. Please read the Nebulizer section of the add-on items for more information regarding nebulizers and their use.
1 - Oxygen Connection Port - This port is plugged as not all users will need to provide supplemental oxygen to the unit. You may purchase a 2-way oxygen connection if you choose to use the unit with an oxygen concentrator
(a 2-way connector is an add-on option and now purchased separately)
1 - Set of Instructions broken down by component as follows:
- Incubator instructions - Provides detailed information regarding how to set up the incubator correctly and you can also access pdfs and videos via the tabs on the website product page
- Digital Temperature Instructions - Provides precise instructions on using the controller including changing temperature and internal parameters
- Digital Humidity Controller & Setup Instructions - Provides precise instructions on using the controller and setting up the digital humidity system, tubing, and attachments included
*The connections and cords for the incubator, humidity pump, and connections are color-coded and/or marked for ease of use and error-free installation!
Please Note: This incubator is not designed to "cool" it is not an air conditioner. It is designed to heat and mainly used for newborn animals who cannot regulate their own body temperature. The recommended time frame for keeping animals in the incubator is 10-14 days. Animals older than this are putting off their own body temperature which will drastically affect how the unit functions. Placing adult animals inside the unit with the babies is not recommended. The unit is not capable of cooling under the room temperature it is kept in. Animals that are regulating their own body temperature will make the internal temperature rise and will affect the internal temperature the unit can cool down to. Please see the tab labeled 'Manuals and Instructions' for additional information on recommended temperature, oxygen, and humidity settings.
Additional Information: Bedding, pads, and additional attachments can be purchased here on our website at the time of purchase or separately. We are no longer including bedding with the purchase so it allows the user to choose their choice of bedding.
*Please Note: You DO NOT have to purchase any of the additional options offered to use the unit. The additional options simply enhance the functionality of the base unit and allow you additional functionality and use of the incubator turning it into a true portable intensive care unit.
