What cam is adequate for use in an incubator ? I found a sight called surplus and they have everything, even have turner motors from 1.5 rpm and up.

The run of the mill computer fan, 60mm or 80mm is just fine.

It runs on a maximum of 12volts. If you use a cell phone charger it will run typically at 5v output which will calmly turn those fans. If you find a charger/adaptor at 8volts, it will turn faster and move air more aggressively.

If you run it at its maximum with a 12vout output charger, it will typically be noisy but will really create a hurricane of air movement.

It's your choice.

22 has plenty of 12v and 120v fans to choose from. I ordered my two from amazon and of course I ordered 2 in case the one craps out. I ordered a 120v just so I can wire it in to come on when my light bulb comes on.

I did not want to mess with the 12v and having to use a 12 adapter. My fan moves a lot of air, but it works and works well.

I can not remember what kind it was.....hmmm let me check.


Model AV=12038MB
AC115V Speed = 2600
Double Ball Bearing

I am sure I could use another kind or another voltage, but it works for my needs.

Hope this helps ya out.
