Union Process Inc, which specialises in particle size reduction and dispersing equipment has built a new grinder for its in-house pilot plant.

The Attritor features a frame to accommodates two tanks constructed of stainless steel. The mill has an explosion-proof motor and uses a remotely mounted variable frequency (inverter) drive. On the Attritor, there are stop/start push buttons with a potentiometer for controlling the speed.

‘This versatile design provides us with an opportunity to quickly and easily switch between S-10 Attritor and S-15 Attritor tank assemblies,’ said Chuck Major, sales manager. ‘Additionally, the S-10/15 Attritor can be configured for wet, dry, inert atmosphere or cryogenic milling.’
