Manufacturing of Dysprosium-Iron Alloys by Electrolysis in Fluoride-Based Electrolytes. Electrolysis in a Laboratory-Scale Cell
Some Phenomena Taking Place at the Electrodes in Aluminium Cells with Inert Anodes
Inert anodes may replace carbon anodes in the future, but there are still many obstacles to overcome. The present paper deals with three different phenomena related to inert anodes. With anodes based on nickel ferrite, consumption of the anode itself by an "autocannibal" reaction will take...
Wetting Phenomena in Aluminium Electrolysis
Interfacial tension and wetting phenomena are important in all industrial processes, and the aluminium electrolysis is no exception. The present paper explains some of the basic principles related to interfaces, including the Young equation and principles for computing the shape of surfaces. An anal...
The Future of the Hall-Héroult Technology
In the authors' opinion, it is not likely that there will soon be an alternative to the Hall-Héroult process for making primary aluminium. The energy consumption in the traditional process is steadily decreasing, and there is still more room for improvement. The present paper discusses some opp...
