“Current efficiencyCurrent efficiency” is an important cell parameter which shows how efficiently current is used to produce aluminiumAluminium. Operational parameters that affect current efficiencyCurrent efficiency have been widely studied in the aluminium industryAluminium Industry, and factors like electrolyte composition and superheat have been changed to improve the current efficiencyCurrent efficiency. However, the industrial cell is a complex system where all parameters are closely interrelated, which makes it difficult to change any parameter independently. Sterten and Solli developed a laboratory cell specifically designed to study current efficiencyCurrent efficiency. Many studies have been made using the cell to study the effect of various operational parameters on current efficiencyCurrent efficiency. As a result of improved understanding, the operational parameters presently used by the industry have changed, which is reflected by new operating condition standards for the laboratory cell. This study focuses on the challenges faced when implementing new standards in the current efficiencyCurrent efficiency laboratory cell; these standards (11.5% AlF3, 5% CaF2, 4% Al2O3, cryolite ratio 2.2, temperature 965 °C) are comparable to typical parameters in the aluminium industryAluminium Industry today.
