Tubing Cutters

How am I able to safely collect or extract Mercury from a thermometer?

please help... thank you...

Obviously, a glass tubing cutter will make a scored line around the thermometer. Then snap it and pour out the mercury. But, let's think this through. Liquid mercury by itself is actually pretty benign. The problem is that Mg won't stay in the benign liquid state. Some will invariably get spilled, and some may evaporate.

There are reasons why we don't want Hg in the environment, and why many scientific equipment companies are helping to collect mercury thermometers. You don't want Hg to get into the food chain, and you certainly don't want to breathe Hg vapor.

Here are some things to look forward to when the mercury gets away from you:
