UNION PROCESS, INC.: Attritor for Fiberglass Recycling
The stainless steel mill features an elongated design and a flanged inlet for screw feeding the material.
Union Process, Inc. has manufactured a dry grinding SDL250 attritor that its customer will use for recycling fibrous material. “This is a fairly new application for our attritors,” said Chuck Major, sales manager. “The customer needed a specially designed heavy-duty mill for continuous dry milling of fiberglass, and our SDL250 met their requirements. We included a specially designed material deflector to aid in material feeding.”
The stainless steel mill features an elongated design and a flanged inlet for screw feeding the material. It has a 250-hp TEFC motor suitable for a variable-frequency drive (VFD). The mill includes a G-series reducer comprised of a heavy-duty right angle gear box with cooling fan. Specially configured hardened tool steel agitator arms increase milling efficiency. Product discharge is achieved via two metering valves for material discharge flow control.
“Our customer is thrilled to be able to recycle material that they had previously been discarding as scrap,” said Major. “This is good for them and great for the environment.”
