The best features in recycling
New lamp crusher to be unveiled at RWM Exhibition
Lamp recycling solutions manufacturer, Balcan Engineering will unveil their latest lamp crusher at this year’s Recycling and Waste Management (RWM) Exhibition in Birmingham.
The Balcan Lamp Crusher – updated from an already-existing version used by waste management companies in the UK, South Africa, Ecuador, Columbia and Cuba – will use a two-filter system to remove mercury from lamps and deposit crushed remains into sealed containers. A fan-operated air filter and an activated carbon filter will remove dust down to five microns, and will eliminate toxic mercury vapour.
“Most lamps contain mercury, so it is vital that they are destroyed correctly,” said Julian Rinfret, a sales director at Balcan Engineering. “The Balcan Lamp Crusher can minimise all types of commonly used lamps, in all shapes and sizes, including straight fluorescent, u-tube, HID and compact fluorescent bulbs before shipment to a recycling plant.”
Balcan Engineering will unveil the latest Balcan Lamp Crusher at their stand at the NEC in Birmingham, from 11-13 September.
