Implementing Pot Operation Best Practice



LMRC has implemented current best practice standards in smelters around the world based on experience on the smelter production floor and a wealth of knowledge accumulated in research conducted in our labs and around the world. 

The improved operational practices is standardised in order to get a consistent quality outcome from each and every operator impacting positively on the overall performance of the smelter. Using correct operation procedures in areas such as: 

  • Start-up
  • Anode change
  • Metal tap
  • Liquid level measurements

will reduce carbon consumption, keep the pots operation stable, reduce energy consumption and increase current efficiency. 

Having a quality operational practices and stable operation allows further reduction in cell voltage and energy consumption while maintaining high current efficiency
