Akron, Ohio, June 16, 2021 – Industries around the world have experienced supply chain disruptions and raw material shortages due to COVID-19 shutdowns and other factors. These disruptions have provided insight into the fragility of manufacturing processes and the importance of tight controls to reduce or eliminate the loss of costly and scarce raw materials and other raw materials.
For food processors, chemical suppliers, paint manufacturers and many others, Union Process has played a critical role in managing and maintaining bulk materials and other resources. Based in Akron, Ohio, the company manufactures attritors, horizontal bead mills (DMQX series), and other industrial grinding and size reduction systems that serve as key components in complex manufacturing and manufacturing networks.
Versatility is one of the reasons why industrial products made by Union Process are used in so many different industries. Attritors can work in conjunction with mixers as part of a grinding system, but are also available as standalone units. The mixing containers can also be purchased separately. Union Process customers can specify precisely the components that are required for their very specific tasks.
Union Process Mixing Tanks are available in capacities from 5 to 1,000 gallons and can be configured in many different ways to meet specific needs. Typically, a mixing tank is equipped with a disperser, which can have a large number of different impellers. Connected to a central shaft and powered by a variable frequency drive, these impellers provide slow shear for mixing, high shear for dispersion, and everything in between. An anchor stirrer, a U-shaped device, tracks the walls and bottom of the tank to prevent material from sticking to the surfaces.
The tanks can be jacketed and have a stainless steel wall and another carbon steel or stainless steel wall. Jackets are available for applications that are required for heating or cooling. For example, material that moves very quickly can generate heat and friction that must be cooled. Explosion proof models are also available.
âWe can offer a variety of options when it comes to mixing tanks,â said Brian Li, Union Process Sales Manager. “These tanks are an important part of our processing solutions that work effectively and reliably.”
Union Process has provided custom grinding and dispersing solutions for a wide variety of applications to customers around the world since 1946.
