The Bulb Eater® 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 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® frees up valuable storage space normally filled with boxes of spent whole lamps, reduces handling and related labor costs, and typically cuts recycling costs by 50% or more.
Create a safer work environment – EPA studies show an estimated 2-3% accidental breakage rate while boxing lamps prior to pick-up. The 0.001% emission rate from the Bulb Eater® lamp crushing system provides for less mercury vapor emission.
