Directions and Operating Instructions for X-Ray Egg Candler DIRECTIONS After removing from carton, screw wood- en handle securely on threaded bolt, and connect plug to cur- rent. Candler is for 110 voltage (but can supply for 32V or 220V upon request). Candler is provided with automatic switch in socket for turning current on and off, without dis- connecting from the socket. FOR CANDLING EGGS Simply move Candler over top of eggs in tray. Large end of egg should be pointed toward Candler. The spotlight on the air cell of the egg illuminates the entire contents. As the germ always rises to the top, it is in plain view. Dead and weak germs, blood spots, cracked shell and clear eggs are detected instantly. Candler will not injure germ upon being held in close contact with egg. If egg tray will not permit removal of un- desirable eggs while testing, they may be marked and later removed or replaced, thereby keeping rows intact. With an X-Ray Egg Candler, a dark room is not necessary for testing. A TIME SAVER With the X-Ray Egg Candler, it is possible to candle 75 to 100 eggs or more, per minute. SPECIAL ADVANTAGES To obtain most satisfactory Candling results, allow all eggs to .emain in incubator, undisturbed, for 83 hours. Then after being candled, they should be turned regularly. White eggs can be candled with accuracy after 72 hours. It is not necessary to turn eggs until they have been set at least four days. Infertile eggs candled on the third or fourth day will still have a market value. A bad egg throwing off a disagreeable odor can be located instantly with Candler, and removed at any time. DANGER OF CHILLING AVERTED With the X-Ray Candler, hundreds of eggs can he candled in a very few moments, thereby eliminating danger of the eggs being chilled before they are replaced in incubator.
