Union Process, Inc. recently supplied a redesigned C-40 Continuous Attritor for a customer’s large-scale continuous production of zinc oxide and iron oxide. The unit features a 125 HP, T.E.F.C., inverter-duty motor with a variable frequency controller. The LED was programmed to display motor rpm, percent load, amperage and output voltage. With a gross tank volume of 49 gal and a media volume of 44 gal, the C-40 has an approximate throughput of 3000 to 3500 kg/hr. The mill is constructed with a stainless steel agitator shaft with arms, as well as stationary arms built into the side of the tank to interrupt mass or buildup and improve wear. The stainless steel tank is jacketed for cooling and is equipped with a gear tilting assembly, which facilitates the removal of the agitator shaft to allow for easy maintenance and cleaning. The pump assembly is based on an air-operated diaphragm pump with stainless steel housing and Teflon diaphragms and balls.
