Original Press Release:
Union Process Builds S-50/SD-50 That Can Mill Wet or Dry
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 the flexibility of allowing the customer to use it as either a wet or dry grinding mill.
By purchasing just one frame, tank, motor, gear reducer, and drive, one can enjoy the flexibility of grinding either wet or dry. The only changeover required involves changing the shaft/arm assembly, the bottom discharge and in some cases, the cover.
When operating as a wet grinding mill, the S-50 can handle a broad range of applications from ceramics and carbides to inks and chocolate. When operating as a dry grinding mill, the SD-50 (the "D" is added to designate dry grinding) can be used in applications ranging from metal powders to mechanical alloying, pigments, glass frits, and minerals.
Because dry grinding requires more horsepower, the mill is built with a larger motor to accommodate dry grinding.
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.
