I don't think that this single tilde is being used as a comparison sign since, in the second instance in this example, it follows a "less than" sign. This tilde means “approximately” much in the same way the tilde means “not” in logic. (It is a qualifier here, not a sign of comparison.) I would braille it unspaced from the number to which it applies.
