Аннотация: Optimally designed modern aluminum electrolysis cells are made of high-quality materials and are designed for service life of more than five years. Their productivity and technological efficiency are largely determined by the quality of the electrical contact created between the cathode blocks and steel collector bars. Before colleПоказать полностьюctor bar casting, preheating of the cathode blocks is required, for which several technologies are used. One of them is gas preheat, which does not provide the necessary uniformity of heating. In 2014-2018, "ISO" Ltd, together with "RPC MHD", Ltd, we designed, manufactured and implemented installations for preheating of cathode blocks before casting of the cast iron for the following cell technologies: S-8B, S8Ba, S8BM, OA-300M2, SHpVV, SHpBM, SHpVV-120kA, SHpVV-105kA. We have put in operation the installations of the type UENB-R-01, UENB-R-02 and UENB-R-03 in Krasnoyarsk, Bratsk and Shelekhovo branches of "ISO" Ltd, in which electric heating is used with the help of tubular electric heaters developed by "RPC MHD" Ltd. Cooperation to improve the designs of installations allowed replacing gas heating which achieved the required characteristics, in particular, uniform temperature distribution on the surface of the cathode blocks and steel collector bars in the ranges of 350 - 410 °C and 430 – 550 °C, the difference between the average temperature of the blooms and the average temperature of the cathode blocks not least than 100°C, the period of preheating is 120 minutes. The efficiency of electric preheating is confirmed by reliable and long-life operation of the cathodes in electrolysis cells of type S-8B, S8Ba, S8BM, OA-300M2.
