How fluorescent bulbs are made

Tuesday, November 3, 2009
I recently ran across this really cool video detailing the entire fluorescent bulb manufacturing process. The video shows every step, from the shaping of the glass tubes to the cutting of the wires inside, as well as the insertion of all the needed components. Pretty intricate process for such a simple result!

One thing the video shows is the insertion of drops of mercury into each bulb. Mercury is required for the bulb to work, but its presence means that proper disposal is needed (and often required by law!). Fortunately, we here at LampRecycling.com have a neat solution that solves the bulb disposal problem: prepaid EasyPak recycling containers.
