Union Process: Continuous Attritor

Union Process, Inc. has built its first C-60 Continuous Attritor™ for an environmentally conscientious manufacturer of ceramic proppants and other ceramic media. The C-60 will aid in the grinding of ceramic material pulled from the manufacturer’s waste stream, which will save the manufacturer money and will also assist in complementing a developing green trend in the ceramic industry.

The C-60 features stationary arms that are built into the sides of the grinding tank. These stationary arms help to interrupt mass or buildup, and they also decrease the amount of wear on the tank. The stainless steel grinding tank of the C-60 has a gross volume of 79 gal and is jacketed for cooling. In addition to these features, the unit is equipped with a stainless steel inlet assembly with check valve. The media discharge valve is located at the bottom of the tank.

Continuous Attritors are ideal for the continuous production and fast grinding of large quantities of material. They are designed to deliver a low-cost, low-maintenance operation. The company also offers production-sized mills, grinding media, lab services, Attritor refurbishing or reconditioning, and custom toll processing.
