Study of Surface Phenomena at the Interface Between Anode and Cryolite-Alumina Melt
The multistage character of the anode process in a cryolite-alumina melt [1–4] calls for a close study of the processes occurring at different current densities. This is of particular importance in the determination of anode consumption under industrial conditions. It has been shown  that the quantity of “carbon scum” in the electrolyte depends to a considerable extent on current density. A study of the resistance of carbon electrodes to disintegration is therefore of practical interest.
