Properties and Behavior of Green Anodes

  • S. Wilkening
Extractive & Process Metallurgy


In this paper, the author explores the testing schemes needed to ascertain the physical characteristics of green anodes at various stages of production. The article cites examples of analysis of composition, apparent density, and porosity measurements. It also addresses thermal behavior and the evolution of volatile matter during storage and baking. Finally, the work suggests relationships between green anode properties and typical failure modes observed in anode processing.
