Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Zinc is produced from ores by two general methods, distillation and electrolysis.

The general principles involved in the electrolytic zinc process of today were known as far back as 1880. Difficulties encountered in purifying the solution for electrolysis and lack of suitable mechanical apparatus were the main reasons that such a long time elapsed before the process was used to produce zinc in commercial quantities.

It has been proven by research and years of experience, that before electrolytic zinc is possible, the electrolyte, as zinc sulfate solution must be prepared as pure as is economical. In other words, the ideal electrolyte must only be a solution of one metal - zinc. Every other metal and carbon must be excluded if good recovery and a firm deposit is to be obtained.
