Introduction to the Tilapia egg incubator 3 jars

For tilapia hatcheries who handle smaller amounts of tilapia eggs we have developed the tilapia egg incubator with 3 jars. Tilapia eggs will be transferred to one of the three Mc Donald hatching jars of the tilapia incubation system plug and play. Each hatching jar has a volume of 8 litres at a density of maximum of 20,000 eggs per jar, resulting in a total density of 60,000 eggs per cycle. Please check out our larger tilapia incubation system (with six hatching jars) if you require a system for larger production. After a period of 3 to 5 days, the eggs will hatch. After hatching, the yolk sac fry will flow out of the jar into a white reception tank. After complete yolk sac absorption, the fry should be transferred to the tilapia fingerling systems.

Specifications of the system:

  • 3x Mc Donald hatching jars, approximately 8 litres each
  • 3x Tilapia fry reception tanks
  • Sedimentation filter tank (mechanical filtration) allows for removing all the solid particles from the system water flow.
  • Pump tank in which pump, freshwater supply and overflow pipe are installed.
  • Frame (out of SS304) with adjustable stands for easy installation of the system.
  • Connection for freshwater supply (1x floating valve (automatic filling), 1x ball valve (manual filling))
  • 1x Messner pump (48 W – 240 V) (made in Germany)
  • 1x 40-watt VGE UV-C unit with SS304 housing (made in The Netherlands)
  • PVC piping and fittings to connect the different system elements.
