What makes this the BEST fluorescent lighting waste compactor in the World? –

Handles everything

The single machine crushes all linear, CFL, and U-bend lamps

Efficient filtration

The Cyclone separator upstream of the filtering system acts as a gross pre-filter to extend the life of the filters downstream

Safe filtration

The Cyclone Five stage filter system: 1) Cyclonic Separator 2) Cartridge Filter   3) HEPA filter   4) Activated Carbon Filter   5) Final HEPA filter – means it passes all EPA tests meeting strict USA standards.

Safe connections

Only two hose connections. No casual connections of hoses – eliminates accidental disconnections

Smart Technology

On-board controls with Intelli Technology

  • Multiple sensing points that assist with machine diagnostics and maintenance/filter change-outs.  Eliminates guesswork for filter changes and ensures that the system is operating safely
  • LCD display that advertises which mode the machine is in and any faults that might occur.  It also alerts the operator to a full drum.

Training & Support

Terracycle – and their subsidiary, AirCycle have sold thousands of machines around the world.

They have developed a robust Online Certified Bulb Eater® 3 Training Program – Insures baseline training level for operators & supervisors
