Abstract

The authors investigated the effect of current density, anode-cathode distance, times and current intensity ratios of forward and reverse current periods on polarization voltage, cell voltage and specific energy consumption in electrolytic copper refining by current-reversal. Incomplete four-variable interpolation polynomials were used to describe the relationships between the above variables. On the basis of evaluation using the methods of mathematical statistics, the current density and the anode-cathode distance were found to affect the specific energy consumption significantly in the range of variation investigated.
