Thanks to our specialized services designed to assure you peace of mind, RLF is offering you many benefits towards efficient fluorescent lamps management.

Lamps treatment

The Model 2000 processing system is specifically designed and engineered to strict operating requirements. The result is a totally self-contained, continuous flow process for disposal of all types of fluorescent or HID lamps.
- Straignt fluorescent lamps (4', 6', 8')
- U-shaped fluorescent lamps
- plastified fluorescent lamps
- Compact fluorescent lamp (CFL)
- HID lamps
- and more...

. Lamps enter the system through a negative air chamber where they implode releasing mercury vapor wich is immediately captured and filtered through a continuous duty, multi-stage filtration system. Lamp components are subject to air separation, mechanically sized, and separated by a patent pending sieving process. The entire recycling process is conducted under negative pressure. Components exiting the system are aluminium and other metals and lamp glass all of which contain insignificant levels of mercury (90 to 95% below toxicity and leachate limits set by the Ministry of Environment).

The Model 2000 has additional features which include 60,000 lamps per day capacity, low work area emission levels to meet OSHA mercury level requirements in the work area, and almost non-existent mercury levels emitted through the system exhaust. The RLF is only one among more than fifteen facilities utilizing the Model 2000 processing system. This provides the confidence and assurance that your lamps are being recycled through the safest and most economical method feasible. Through this network of facilities, we can provide economical lamp recycling services across Canada and the United States. While other companies are still attempting to perfect their systems, RLF is positioning itself to be the industry leader in this dynamic emerging field.
