UNION PROCESS: Attritor
The CL300 mill reportedly has a design that allows for continuous feeding of dry materials and liquid simultaneously with no need for pre-mixing.
Union Process, Inc. has manufactured a CL300 attritor for processing a silica-based slurry for the construction industry. The CL300 mill reportedly has a design that allows for continuous feeding of dry materials and liquid simultaneously with no need for pre-mixing. In addition, media separation screens are not used or needed. Initial feed size can range up to 10 mm and larger, in some cases. A 250-HP, non-explosion-proof motor with a variable frequency drive powers the mill. The grinding tank is rubber-lined stainless steel and has a gross volume of approximately 390 gal. The mill includes a two-piece 316L-stainless steel cover with a Teflon® floating seal.
“We worked with the customer at our pilot plant in our facility to test their material and ultimately to determine what type of equipment would work best for their particular application,” said Chuck Major, sales manager. “Even though prior to this application, we had manufactured CL attritors exclusively as part of a limestone grinding system, our pilot plant experience told us that a CL300 would be ideal for this customer.”
