Union Process supplies attritors to confectionary manufacturer

Chocolate sales grew by as much as 13% during the COVID pandemic and are expected to reach $20 billion by 2025

A large confectionary manufacturer has reportedly purchased four Q-Series Chocolate Grinding Attritors from Union Process based in Akron, Ohio.

Each of the specialised grinding systems includes a 450% starting inverter duty motor and an LCD screen to display agitator RPM, motor AMPS, and horsepower at any given time.

“The precision grinding capabilities of the Q-Series are important for chocolate producers because chocolate must be ground down to 20 microns and under,” said Chuck Major, Union Process Sales Manager. “The Q-50 Attritors produce a fine, even particle dispersion that result in a very consistent end product.”

Chocolate sales grew by as much as 13% during the COVID pandemic and are expected to reach $20 billion by 2025. Many different types of food processors have turned to Union Process, the company says, to help keep up with rising demand and to manage supply chain disruptions caused by the pandemic, labour shortages, and other factors.
