Air Cycle's Bulb Eater® Named a 2012 Money-Saving Product

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.
