Abstract

Six wt% AlCl//3 was contained in binary chloride electrolytes chosen from NaCl, KCl, LiCl and MgCl//2 with melting points from 398 degree to 670 degree C. Electrorefining was at 700 degree C. The cathode current efficiency is lower with time and increasing current density. The diaphragm should be 4. 5 mm thick to assure current density of 0. 1 A/cm**2 for electrorefining at voltage of 0. 5v. Electric power consumption will be under 1,700 kwhr per ton excluding heating energy for bath temperature if the cathode current efficiency is 90% or more.
