Unlike companies who supersede or discontinue equipment, Balcan Lamp Recycling endeavours to ensure their equipment has sustained use and can be adapted to meet clients' needs.

The original Balcan  lamp crushers used a water spray during the crushing process to control the mercury vapour.   However, as the Balcan Lamp & Bulb Recycling System is a dry system (the industry standard), the new mercury lamp & Cfl bulb recycling kit controls the mercury containing dust & mercury vapour emissions by use of extractor fans and filters, to provide a bag, or drum, of dry lamp debris that can be recycled by Balcan.

As long as the Balcan Lamp & Bulb Crusher is in good working order, a mercury lamp recycling filter unit can be added to your machine (a power supply will be required).

New Balcan Lamp & Bulb Crushers sold are automatically supplied with a mercury lamp recycling filter kit (unless specified by the client).

Remember, utilising lamp & bulb crushing offers the following advantages:

  • Fluorescent tubes & other mercury lamps are crushed as they are generated therefore needing less storage space.
  • Once crushed, there is no risk of accidental damage, vandalism or using the lamps as weapons.
  • The resultant mercury debris is stored in clearly labelled sacks, minimising the risk of incorrect disposal.
  • The sacks or drums overcome the risk of pollution from the crushed mercury lamp debris.
  • Utilisation of a lamp crusher still provides the cheapest, most efficient & environmentally friendly lamp disposal method.
  • No uncontrolled mercury emissions to atmosphere that may be associated through transportation of large stills/containers when mercury lamps are unavoidably broken.
