Union Process, a manufacturer of particle size reduction and dispersing equipment, has custom built an SD100 Attritor for processing a very dense material.

‘Our customer's application required a very robust mill that could accommodate the very dense material they are processing,’ said Chuck Major, sales manager for the company. ‘Therefore, this dry grinding mill required a larger motor, reducer and shaft than we would normally build for a mill of this size.’

Because material is discharged into two different 55-gallon drums, Union Process was required to build a heavy-duty riser upon which the SD100 sits. The mill features a dual discharge (front and back) so the material can be discharged into both drums. The dual discharge configuration allows the product to exit more quickly, increasing turnaround time for each batch.
