Anode Jacks for Aluminum Smelting Joyce

Aluminum smelters are faced with the problem of maximizing efficiency and potline up time, despite wear and tear on various components of their smelting equipment. Although anode jacks have a typical life of 10 to 30 years, many smelters were originally constructed in the 1950s through the 1970s. As existing anode jacks at these facilities increase in age, so do instances of jack failure. An

Aluminium for Future Generations Anode Production

Anodes are large carbon blocks which are used to conduct electricity during the aluminium reduction process. As they do so they are consumed, at a rate of around 450 kg per tonne of aluminium produced. The two families of smelting technology in operation today Søderberg and prebake are characterised by the types of anode employed.

Aluminium smelting

Electrolyte: The electrolyte is a molten bath of cryolite (Na3AlF6) and dissolved alumina. Cryolite is a good solvent for alumina with low melting point, satisfactory viscosity, and low vapour pressure. Its density is also lower than that of liquid aluminium (2 vs 2.3 g/cm ), which allows natural separation of the product from the salt at the bottom of the cell. The cryolite ratio (NaF/AlF3) in pure cryolite is 3, with a melting temperature of 1010 °C, and it forms a eutectic with 11% alumina at 960 °C. In industrial cells t

Aluminum Smelter an overview ScienceDirect Topics

As regards anodes for the electrolytic cell there are two types of anodes generally used in aluminum smelter plants, and they are pre-baked carbon anode and the other Soderberg anode. Figures 1.2 and 1.3 above show the construction of these anodes. Both these type of anodes are made from the same basic materials and react in the same way. Although Soderberg anode may be more energy efficient

The Aluminum Smelting Process and Innovative Alternative

08/05/2014 The corrosion products, caused by the dissolution of the anode material into the electrolyte, predominantly will end up in the metal phase and thereby contaminate the aluminum produced. Hence, the anode corrosion should be low enough to give impurity contents corresponding to the present specifications for smelter grade aluminum.

Tin Dioxide-Based Ceramics as Inert Anodes for Aluminium

The behaviour of tin dioxide-based ceramics as inert anodes was examined in a laboratory-scale aluminium smelting cell over a range of electrolyte compositions with operating temperatures between 830 975°C.

Prebaked consumable carbon anode

During the smelting process, these anodes are suspended within the electrolysis cell(s) containing the aluminium oxide or aluminium fluoride. The process consumes the anode at a rate of roughly 450 kg of anode per tonne of aluminium produced. "Spent" anodes have little industrial use and are generally discarded; however, anodes that have been used to process aluminium fluoride may contain some amount of hydrogen fluorideand require hazardo

Currently, primary aluminium smelting relies on carbon anodes, which produce CO 2 as they degrade. Innovation efforts are under way to develop inert anodes, which are made from alternative materials, do not degrade, and produce pure oxygen rather than CO 2.
