Abstract
(EN)
There is disclosed apparatus for comminuting waste fluorescent light tubes comprising: (i) comminuting means (10, 11) for receiving the tubes and located within an enclosure (15); (ii) storage means (17) for receiving the comminuted tubes; (iii) means (19) for exhausting air from said enclosure (15) and said storage means (17) and discharging to atmosphere through a filter system (22) including an absorption filter for mercury vapour; and (iv) a port (30) to the storage means (17) through which its contents may be extracted by vacuum suction.
(FR)
Cette invention se rapporte à un appareil qui sert à broyer des tubes lumineux fluorescents usagers et qui comprend à cet effet: (i) des moyens de broyage (10, 11) dans lesquels sont introduits les tubes et qui sont logés dans une enceinte (15); (ii) un moyen de stockage (17) destiné à recevoir les tubes broyés; (iii) un moyen (19) servant à évacuer l'air de l'enceinte (15) et du moyen de stockage (17) et de décharger cet air dans l'atmosphère par l'intermédiaire d'un système de filtrage (22), lequel comporte un filtre d'absorption pour les vapeurs de mercure; et (iv) une ouverture (30) ménagée dans le moyen de stockage (17) et par laquelle le contenu de ce dernier peut être extrait par aspiration par le vide.
