Large Circulation Attritor System

Large Circulation Attritor System

Union Process Inc. has built a QL100 circulation attritor for a large automotive accessories’ supplier.

"A number of things made this project a win-win,” said Chuck Major, sales manager, Union Process Inc. “Not only did the attritor need to be explosion-proof, but the customer had limited space. So, instead of purchasing several large batch attritors, we recommended a large 1000-gal pre-mix holding tank as part of the system to increase their total production capacity with only one circulation "Q" system attritor. 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 attritor features a grinding tank with a gross volume of approximately 111 gal. The mill is powered by a 125-HP, two-speed explosion-proof motor with a variable speed drive. An IEC starter and pushbuttons with a digital AMP display and emergency stop are mounted in a NEMA 7/9 enclosure and completely wired to the motor.

A large 1000-gal stainless-steel, pre-mix holding tank completes the recirculation system. The customer also ordered 4000 lb of ¼-in through-hardened carbon steel grinding balls.
