Clean up Mercury Spills with Micromeritics’ Compact, Low-cost Mercury QuikVac - 2/25/2009

For many years, mercury has been used in a number of products, processes, and laboratory operations. Mercury is universally regarded as a hazardous material. Health and safety regulations require that anywhere mercury is used, a means of managing spillage and human exposure must be provided.



Micromeritics’ Mercury QuikVac is an excellent low-cost alternative for quickly containing mercury spills. The instrument is capable of collecting liquid mercury droplets and mercury-contaminated particulate matter. Its compact size and light weight make it ideal for laboratory applications. A replaceable 0.3 – 0.5 micron activated carbon filter traps mercury vapors and exhausts clean, safe air. The instrument also includes a large capacity 250-mL recovery bottle.
