ATTRITOR ACTION
The operation of an Attritor is simple and effective.
The material to be ground is placed in a stationary,
jacketed tank with the grinding media. Carbon steel,
stainless steel and chrome steel balls (3/16" or 1/4")
are commonly used media. The material and media
are then agitated by a rotating internal shaft with arms.
The final result is a fine, even particle dispersion.
Attritors are produced in three types:
circulation (Q-series),
continuous (CH-series),
and batch (S-series).
ADVANTAGES
• Features high pumping rates
that result in faster grind and
narrower particle size
distribution.
• Easily grinds down to 20 microns – 10 microns.
• Reproducible results from batch to batch.
• Allows continuous monitoring of slurry and addition of ingredients
to the premix tank at any time during the grinding.
• Low power consumption.
• Low maintenance with minimum down time.
• Has a jacketed grinding tank specially designed for temperature control.
The holding tank is also jacketed for greater temperature control.
DIMENSIONS AND WEIGHTS ARE APPROXIMATE.
Circulation Attritors designated as “QL” include specially configured arms
and disks.
*Pumping rate is somewhat lower with higher viscosity slurries.
**Dimensions and weights are for complete system.
