Anode changing

The Hencon Anode Changing machines are used used in Prebaked 'end to end' plotlines of the primary aluminium production. They pull out the used anodes (butts) and replace the used anodes for a new anode. The Anode Changing Machine can also be used to reposition anodes.

Precise handling of the anode is achieved by choosing the right tools and controls. Besides the right options a good view on the anode and the pot is essential to assure a smooth proces. Besides these substantial requirements, the type of pots (reduction cells) and the production process itself determine the optimal design of the Anode Changers.
