The system, which mounts to a 55-gallon drum, can hold up to 1350 x 4′ T8 fluorescent tubes. Three-stage filtering removes hazardous particulates and gases. A new safety control panel added, gives 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 tubes, reduces handling and related labour costs, and typically cuts recycling costs by 50% or more.
