Union Process Builds Large, Powerful Dry Grinding Attritor for Growing Battery Industry
Akron, OH. . .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 built a large SD-250 for an application in the lithium battery industry.
The dry grinding SD-250 Attritor features a 400 HP TEFC inverter duty motor with a heavy duty variable frequency drive controller.
Union Process Sales Manager Emery Li commented, "This is one of the largest and most powerful metal-free Attritors we have ever built. A steel frame riser was also provided to support and elevate the Attritor (not shown in photo) so that the multiple bottom product discharge valves will be easily accessible for material handling purposes. Noise insulation for the grinding tank was also provided to reduce the dB levels during processing. The high tech needs of the lithium battery industry require highly engineered equipment. As such, we are proud that Union Process Attritors are playing a vital role in the burgeoning green technology market."
The SD-250 has a gross tank volume of ~288 gallons, a material capacity of ~125 gallons and a media volume of 187 gallons. Batch Attritors are designed to allow material to be charged into the mill at the top, ground for a predetermined time, then discharged through the bottom.
Union Process is the inventor and developer of Attritor technology and manufactures wet and dry grinding mills as well as small media mills.
