Next Generation Bulb Eater Introduced

William Opalka

BulbEaterThe next generation of the Bulb Eater lamp crushing machine that captures more than 99 percent of released vapors has been introduced.  Air Cycle Corp.’s Bulb Eater 3 with Intelli Technology crushes spent fluorescent lamps of any length, u-tubes, and CFLs into percent recyclable material in less than one second.

The system, which is mounted to a 55-gallon drum, can hold up to 1350 4-foot fluorescent lamps. A five-stage filtering process removes hazardous particulates and vapors.

Filtering system features include:

•    Cyclone separator filters most of the particulates back into the drum;
•    Upgraded cartridge filter catches any fine particles (second stage);
•    Dual-action, replaceable HEPA filters remove fine particles (third and fifth stage); and
•    Fourth stage Activated Carbon filter captures and neutralizes mercury vapors released during the controlled crushing of lamps.
