A twin stage air filter ensures that harmful bacteria and fungal spores are effortlessly removed from the brooding chamber; air is gently circulated by an internal fan in a way that minimises airborne dust; and the whole unit can be easily disassembled for easy and effective cleaning.

Questions & Answers

What’s the difference between a TLC Eco and TLC Advance?

The main difference between the TLC Eco’s and TLC Advance’s is the humidity display and humidity control function. The TLC Eco doesn’t have a humidity display and the humidity must therefore be controlled manually.

The TLC Advance models also have an interior LED lighting system.

The Advance model has a humidity display, and although the humidity still must be controlled manually, you can optionally purchase a humidity pump that provides automatic humidity control. This difference in specification applies to all the TLC 40 and 50 range.

The TLC 30 range is slightly different. A TLC 30 Eco does not have a digital display, it simply has a liquid in glass thermometer to display the temperature. The temperature can be adjusted via a dial. The TLC 30 Advance features a digital temperature display and the temperature is adjusted using buttons on the display. Neither the TLC 30 Eco or Advance have a humidity display or any humidity control.

Customer Reviews

Helping Haxby Hedgehogs
This is a great incubator, high quality and a good size. It was delivered within 24 hours of ordering. Very impressive!
Mrs Patricia Wallinger
As a small, comparatively new hedgehog rescue if was felt that an intensive care facility was essential. An appeal to the supporters was made and these fantastic people gave enough to purchase two incubators. Now the rescue is ready to face the future care needs of more hedgehogs.
Tessa Dunbar
I bought this for my hedgehog rescue. I ordered it and it was delivered the next day. Excellent service and an excellent product. I have 2 of the smaller incubators and I wanted a bigger one so there was room for a hedgehog and food and water bowls. The TLC40 is perfect for this and by that evening it was in use. Many thanks Brinsea!
