Flexible Design SD-50 Attritor Provides Numerous Customer Benefits

Akron, Ohio. . .Union Process, Inc., known globally as a manufacturer of size reduction and dispersing equipment for a broad range of industrial applications, has produced a new Batch-type Attritor that offers multiple benefits to the customer by allowing wet or dry grinding and the interchangeability of different tank sizes on one mill.

The unique design means that users can operate the mill either as an SD-50 or a smaller SD-30 (if using smaller batches) by simply interchanging the tanks. The customer enjoys the advantages of two mills with one footprint.

The energy-efficient SD-50 can handle a broad range of dry grinding applications including ceramics, carbides, metal powders, pigments, glass frits and mechanical alloying. This particular mill was constructed with an optional explosion-proof design that features explosion-proof controls and variable frequency drive that is mounted outside the hazardous area.

Further expanding the flexibility of the mill, special covers can be purchased that allow for cryogenic grinding and grinding under an inert atmosphere.

Batch-type Attritors are ideal choices for fast, efficient grinding and repeatable results. The heavy-duty mills are manufactured for long-term, low maintenance operation.

Union Process is the inventor and developer of Attritor technology and manufactures wet and dry grinding mills as well as small media mills.
