Original Press Release:
New and Improved Bulb Eater(TM)
The "Premium" Bulb Eater(TM) system not only crushes spent fluorescent lamps of any length into 100% recyclable material, but also captures over 99.99% of the vapors released! The system, which is mounted to a 55-gallon container, can hold up to 1350 4' fluorescent lamps. A three-stage filtering process removes hazardous particulates and gases. A recent study showed non-detectable levels of escaped mercury vapor even after crushing 1500 lamps. A new safety control panel has also been added, giving the operator added security by monitoring seven aspects of the machine to better ensure operator safety. In addition to providing EPA and OSHA compliance, the Bulb Eater(TM) frees up valuable storage space normally filled with boxes of spent whole lamps, reduces handling and related labor costs, and typically cuts recycling costs.
Air Cycle also offers the benefits of a national recycling service to pick up lamps (both intact and crushed), ballasts, batteries, and computer hardware. For more information contact Air Cycle Corporation toll-free at (800) 909-9709 or at www.aircycle.com.
