Cellulose Applications for Dry Grinding Mills

Cellulose, the fibrous part of all grasses, plants and trees, has a remarkably wide range of applications, including:

  • Textiles
  • Consumer products like sponges and wallpaper paste
  • Paper, paperboard and card stock
  • Additives for processed food
  • Ethanol and biofuel production
  • Fillers for drug tablets

For most applications, the cellulose needs to be broken down through a combination of particle size reduction and chemical means. Its fibrous nature makes cellulose challenging to grind.

But dry grinding mills from Union Process are particularly well-suited to this challenge. The impact and shear forces created by our Attritors are very effective at reducing the cellulose to the necessary micron particle sizes.

Union Process offers both dry grinding batch and continuous mills.
