I have asked the Nor-Lake if their walk in Models NA50RL-1 and NA50RS-1 can be
raised to the 60 to70 degree range for a day or two by means of an electric
heater. They said "Don't go above 55." Feeling that this may be an
appropriately conservative response for a manufacturer, I wonder if someone
has already raised these incubators to higher temperatures to get rid of
mites, and could tell me if any damage was done. These "Evironmental Rooms"
are joined by a connecting door and are controlled for humidity, light and
temperature. They are normally run at 17 and 25 degrees.
The incubators are obviously expensive and not my own, but I am hoping to
provide the owner with information that will help decide a plan of action.
