The 30SD Attritor is explosion-proof, and has a gross tank volume of 53 gallons. The attritor options include a process control timer system, as well as an integrated process temperature control warning/shut-off system.

The mill is powered by a 40 HP, TEFC, inverter duty motor and uses a 460 V / 3 HP / 60 Hz, variable frequency drive.

Arno Szegvari, President of Union Process, says: "We have seen a significant increase in the use of our Attritors in emerging green technologies including lithium ion batteries and other forms of alternative energy. We are excited to have our equipment and processes continue to play a role in developing better and better technologies for the world."

Batch-type Attritors are useful for fast, efficient grinding and repeatable results. The durable mills are manufactured for long-term, low maintenance operation, Union Process says.
