PHILOSOPHY & DESIGN
was established thirty years ago by an engineer with
an interest in breeding birds. The interest became a
passion, and the engineering knowledge channeled his
enthusiasm to produce the most innovative incubators
and brooders available.
The intervening thirty years have seen the successful
application of more patents than the rest of the small
incubator industry combined, culminating in 2003 with
the introduction of the world’s first
A desire to understand the problem, to objectively analyze
the available data and find practical solutions, has
been the driving motivation. We don’t seek to
re-invent the wheel but we do try to be certain that
a ‘wheel’ is really what is required and
that we use the right ‘wheel’ for the job,
irrespective of what other people may do. We believe
that even well tried ideas are capable of improvement,
even our own.
We always keep in mind that simplicity is key. With
the advent of digital electronics there is the temptation
to add whistles and bells which few people want and
which often confuse. Brinsea’s products are designed
to be simple to operate and simple to service.
Our products are designed to be long lasting and energy
efficient. Incubators and brooders have cabinets made
of high quality moulded plastics, stainless steel or
other impervious materials which are smooth and washable
and withstand scrubbing. Good insulation ensures minimum
power consumption, careful air flow design ensures uniform
temperature within cabinets and optimum response to
Our all new Octagon
20 Advance series features the latest state-of-the
art digital control systems, providing instant reading
of temperature and humidity with inbuilt alarms. Precise
control of humidity is a simple, inexpensive add-on.
All our control systems are electronic and heavily protected
from power spikes. All our fans are brushless DC computer
types, which run silent and cool last many times longer
than others. If a new technology comes along, we will
evaluate it and adopt it as appropriate so long as it
offers better quality or value for money.
Brinsea® has its own in-house facilities for an unusually
wide range of manufacturing procedures from electronic
assembly, sheet metal working and numerous methods for
moulding and forming plastics. Every step of every process
is subject to quality assurance procedures independently
assessed under ISO 9002. This enables us to have tighter
control over quality and supply than depending on a
myriad of suppliers. It also facilitates testing of
new ideas and prototyping of new products, which in
turn helps us respond efficiently to the requirements
of our customers. Our technical department has its own
state-of-the-art three dimensional computer aided design
In thirty years Brinsea® has developed into a highly
professional team, each member of which is properly
qualified for the job. However, Brinsea® is still very
much a family business devoted to the production of
bird breeding and veterinarian products of the finest
quality and value for money, and to the best possible
service to customers.
The introduction of the first Contact Incubator will
not allow us to rest on our laurels. Rather, it signals
an acceleration of radical new product introductions
over the next few years.
