BE money saving small

Air Cycle is proud to announce that The Bulb Eater® was named a 2012 Money-Saving Product by Buildings Magazine. The Bulb Eater is part of an elite group of 77 products chosen out of over 150 submissions. Finalists were based on the money-saving qualities offered to building owners and facility managers in areas such as energy consumption, water savings, lighting, envelope improvement, and maintenance.  

The Bulb Eater®  can reduce lamp recycling costs by 50% or more, typically between 10 cents and $1 per lamp. The Bulb Eater holds up to 1,350 4-foot fluorescent lamps in one 55-gallon drum, reducing storage space requirements for the same quantity of boxed lamps by 80%. It can crush 4-foot fluorescent lamps in 1 second, speeding the lamp packaging process. The crushed material is 100% recyclable, and the process captures over 99.99% of mercury vapors. EPA and OSHA compliant! 

Recycling spent lamps with the Bulb Eater is simple and convenient, encouraging a high recycling participation rate among facility workers, increasing regulatory compliance, and reducing the risk of fines. When a drum of crushed lamps is full, Air Cycle will arrange for it to be picked up and recycled at the nearest EPA-approved recycling facility.

The Bulb Eater® lamp crushing system from Air Cycle is fast and easy to use. It can save up to 20 hours of lamp disposal labor per 1000 lamps, and conserves valuable storage space by compacting lamp size by up to 80% for storage prior to recycling.
