Abstract

The development history, design features and current results from Alcoa’s large prebaked anode cell designs; P-155, P-225 and A-697 are described. The P-155 and P-225 designs produced in the sixties optimized return on capital for the U. S. costs of that period. The redesign of P-155, designated A-697 adjusts this optimum to the costs of seventies. Redesign of the P-225 is underway.
