Union Process Builds DMQ-80 For Lithium Ion Battery Market
Akron, Ohio. .. Union Process, Inc., known globally as a manufacturer of particle size reduction and dispersing equipment as well as related services for a broad range of research and industrial applications, has manufactured a custom DMQ-80 Mill for a customer producing materials for lithium ion battery technology.
Union Process President Arno Szegvari explained, "Because of our customer's requirements for a metal-free milling system, this DMQ-80 was custom built using all zirconium oxide (yttria-stabilized) product contact parts."
The unique design of the DMQ-80 Mill allows for fast, efficient grinding of submicron materials with the cost-effective advantages of a circulation mill. Circulation grinding offers numerous benefits including:
- a narrow particle size distribution
- the ability to continuously monitor the product and make formulation adjustments on the fly
- excellent product temperature control
The DMQ-80 utilizes a cartridge-type double mechanical seal for easy maintenance. A special media separator features a large open discharge area which maximizes throughput and flow rate. The media separator's adjustable discharge openings allow for the use of a wide range of grinding media sizes.
Union Process is the original developer of Attritor technology and manufactures wet and dry grinding mills as well as small media mills.
