incubator temperature readings whack
    #1046201 - 11/12/02 02:10 PM (14 years, 26 days ago)

Ok, I built that rubbermaid incubator to a tee, few inches of water with a fully submersible 100 watt visitherm heater with thermostat. inside i have some poo and a few jars. the air temperature just off the bottom, where everything sits, has always been 84-85 degrees, but the thermostat is set at 88. So today for kicks, I put the sensor of my thermometer directly on the plastic sitting under the poo. i got temp readings from 92-94 degrees!! definately too hot. anyone else have this problem? It makes it difficult to set things up correctly with 3 different temperatures. I think i may build a rack to suspend my stuff just above the plastic

I noticed this same problem with jars and felt this was a bad happening. I think that a simple way to solve this problem is to put a blanket or clothing ariticle underneath the casing. there hasn't been any problems with the jars sitting on the plastic as far a colonization but I might try to suspend them. Probably safer.

Try lowering the thermostate. 85 is optimal, but as long as you get it in the 82-87 range you'll be cool, I'd say shoot for lower than higher.

The neighborhood armadillo put 2 thermometers in the cabinet. He found that with the thermostat set to 86,the water temp was 86, as was the bottom of the upper box. The air temp however was only 80degrees. He thinks it has to do with how the heat is absorbed by different materials.

Do you have the upper box surrounded by water,or is it only making contact on the bottom?

I hated that shit. could never get the temp right with a fishtank heater. If i was still using one now, i would put water and the heater in the bottom of a rubbermaid tub, and put the same size with a lid in that. it'd create a decent seal (minus the cord) and you wouldn't have as much problem with the water coolong the heater. I think una did it like this, but i like having it sealed. some guy had a big ling thread about the sealing idea.
