Union Process Introduces Mini Laboratory Circulation Attritor
Akron, Ohio. . .Union Process, Inc., known globally as a manufacturer of particle size reduction and dispersing equipment as well as related services for a broad range of research and industrial applications, has produced the Q-03, a small bench-top laboratory-sized circulation grinding mill.
Union Process developed this smaller circulation Attritor so users can perform lab trials with the advantage of the circulation grinding system using much smaller samples (from 1/2 gallon to one gallon). The Q-03 Circulation Attritor offers all of the advantages of larger laboratory or production sized circulation Attritors including a high circulation pumping rate, narrow particle size distribution, good temperature control and the ability to sample and make formulation adjustments on the fly.
Circulation grinding utilizes a separate holding tank that is larger than the size of the Attritor grinding tank. During the circulation process, the material makes multiple passes through the grinding chamber until the desired particle size is achieved. The entire contents of the holding tank are passed through the milling chamber of the Attritor a minimum of seven times per hour. The high circulation rate and multiple passes result in a faster grind and narrow particle size distribution.
Union Process is the inventor and developer of Attritor technology and manufactures wet and dry grinding mills as well as small media mills.
