Union Process Introduces S-400 Attritor
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 S-400 batch, wet-grinding Attritor for a customer in the building materials industry.
The S-400 represents the largest Attritor ever built by the 66-year old company. Batch Attritors have the advantage of grinding material ten times faster than ball mills. They are simple to operate, energy efficient and require no premixing.
The oversized frame utilizes a pivoting drive cantilever design which allows for easy removal of the agitator shaft for maintenance and cleaning. The Attritor features a 400 HP TEFC inverter duty motor with a heavy-duty variable frequency drive controller.
The large tank accommodates 12,000 lbs. of through-hardened carbon steel grinding media.
Sales Manager Emery Li commented, “As indicated by the request for this largest ever batch Attritor, our reputation among building products manufacturers is growing. They are finding that Attritors, no matter how large, are reliable workhorses that can handle the needs of virtually any requirement.
Union Process is the inventor and developer of Attritor technology and manufactures wet and dry grinding mills as well as horizontal bead mills.
