Training Courses

R&D Carbon has developed a training course for professionals to learn in four days the essentials about anode production and performance in the pots. With this course we would like to offer a forum to the participants to exchange information and experience beyond the limits of their corporation.

These topics are discussed:

  • Anode raw materials
  • Green anode production
  • Baking
  • Rodding
  • Thermal shock resistance
  • Burning behaviour in pots
  • Performance of slotted anodes
  • Quality improvements
  • Specifications
  • Process optimization
  • Cost evaluations
  • New technologies

Concise information to advance your professional skills:

Whether you are an anode raw material supplier, an anode manufacturer, an anode user or trader: This course is intended for technical and commercial people as well as new employees who want to broaden their knowledge about the carbon used for aluminium production.

Alternatively, we give this course as a whole or tailored to the customer's needs onsite for individual smelters or as a corporate training course in a centralized location.

Your benefit:

  • Understand the link between the anode raw materials and the resulting anode quality
  • Get familiar with the instruments to optimize the processing parameters of the paste plant and bake furnace to improve the anode quality and performance in the pots
  • Learn how to reduce the anode consumption and how this affects the smelter costs & savings
Every participant receives a copy of the exhaustive course proceedings which contains all discussed tables and figures - a great reference book that helps to implement the findings of the course in your daily work. Did we attract your interest?
