Résumé

The production of primary aluminum is carried out via the Hall-Héroult process in electrolysis cells using carbon anodes. Their consumption during electrolysis requires the production of a large number of anodes. The final step in the production of anodes is the baking that takes place in large ring furnaces. It is difficult to determine directly the impact of design changes in these furnaces on their performance and anode quality. Modelling allows the evaluation of such modifications in a cost-effective manner. The reliability of mathematical models in the design and optimization of these furnaces has been demonstrated on several occasions. A 3D design model was developed including all the important phenomena occurring in the furnace and was validated using plant data. In this paper, the model is described and the results are presented, which show how the model predictions help improve the baking of carbon anodes and their qualities.
