Akron, Ohio. . .Union Process, known globally as a manufacturer of size reduction and dispersing equipment for research and industrial applications, has manufactured a custom model SDL-30 dry grinding batch Attritor for a customer producing desiccants (sorbents) for the food, pharmaceutical, medical/diagnostic and electronics industries.
This SDL-30 Attritor has a special cover with a Teflon shaft seal for grinding under low temperatures. It features a vent port for liquid nitrogen as well as two ports for charging separate ingredients.
Featuring a gross tank volume of 52 gallons, the mill is constructed with a 50 HP motor with a variable frequency drive (VFD). The controller is installed in a separate enclosure and displays RPM, percent load (torque) KW, amperage, Hz, and output voltage. The operator station, mounted on the Attritor, includes start/stop pushbuttons and a speed potentiometer. The mill was also specified to have specially configured arms to improve milling efficiency.
Union Process batch Attritors are ideal for long-term, heavy-duty operation. The mills are easy to operate, energy efficient, and up to ten times faster than a traditional ball mill. Also, because no special foundation is required for an Attritor, the versatile mill can be operated in virtually any plant location.
