Heat Bomb and Humidity in Incubator?
    #4052842 - 04/14/05 01:56 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)

I have a heat bomb in my incubator. I dont have a jar tall enough to house my entire submersable heater, so the jar of water w/ the heat in it is open at the top. I have to add a little water to it each day to keep the water level above the line on the heater. I was just wondering if this is causing too much humidity in my incubator? My jars seem to be colonizing nicely, but is it possible to have too much humidity in there w/ them? If the open top is causing too much humidity i think i could kind of wrap it shut with some sara-wrap and it would keep the humidity down.

You'd cause + pressure and that would suck...imagine coming home to a broken pickle jar and a hot hot hot fish tank heater laying on melted plastic right next to an eletric cord :smirk:

Get a bigger jar, I would....Humidty in your incubator is un-necessary and only helps bacteria grow.....There's humidity in ur jars, good eunf...Gl

all i want to know is if the humidity hurts the jars as long as it doesnt cause contams?

they've been going 2-3 weeks and are contam free.

As long as contamination is not an issue, no problem.

I solved a similar problem in my old incubator by putting a plastic shopping bag over the heater container, leaving it loose at the bottom. It reduced evaporation considerably.

actually, the whole idea of me doing the heatbomb tek was just that it would never
ever have to be 'cared for' in terms of evaporated water and such..

anyway, id highly recommend you to read my tek again and fix a bomb as outlined in there,
besides that i doubt the humidity to be a problem as long as you care for your inc to be CLEAN.
peace ohm :mushroom2:

Go to the store and look for bigger jars. Pickles and condiments come in some pretty big jars. Plastic is ok to use. You just have to keep the heater away from the plastic on the inside of the jar. The way I do this is by wadding up some aluminum foil and putting it in the bottom of the jar. Then I wrap about a 1 inch thick wad of foil around the top of the heater. Then place heater in jar pushing it into the foil in the bottom. Adjust your top foil so that your heater stays centered. If you can't get it right, you can wrap the hole heater in a big foil wad and put it in the jar. Foil conducts heat just fine. Fill the jar full of water and close your lid.
