Union Process, which makes particle size reduction and dispersing equipment, has built a QL100 circulation Attritor (grinder) for a large automotive accessories supplier.

‘We recommended a large 1,000-gallon pre-mix holding tank as part of the system to increase their total production capacity with only one circulation ‘Q’ system Attritor,’ said Chuck Major, sales manager with the company. ‘This same customer previously purchased a large S400 batch Attritor and this time needed a much larger capacity that we could accommodate with the QL100.’ 

The machine features a grinding tank with a gross volume of approximately 111 gallons, while the mill is powered by a 125 HP, 2-speed explosion-proof motor with a variable speed drive. It also has a 1,000 gallon stainless-steel, pre-mix holding tank and the customer ordered 4,000 lbs of ¼ inch through-hardened carbon steel grinding balls.
