The Attritors is often referred to generically as an “internally agitated high energy media (ball) mill.” The operation of Attritors is simple and effective. The material to be ground and the grinding media are placed in a stationary, jacketed tank. Commonly Media used types are carbon steel, stainless steel, chrome steel and ceramic. The material and the media are then agitated by a shaft with arms, rotating at high speed.
Shearing and impact forces on the material, resulting in optimum size reduction and dispersion. No premixing is necessary. The material can be directly fed into the jacketed grinding tank of the Attritors. Those portions of the formulation requiring only slight grinding can be easily added later.
Attritors are equipped with specially designed high starting torque, two-speed electric motors. The high starting motor means no clutches, etc. is needed. The lower speed is used for charging and discharging and the high speed is used for grinding. For material discharging. The final result of the grinding action is a fine, even particle dispersion.
