The Effect Of Ferric Iron Upon The Current Efficiency And The Deposition Of Copper In The Electrowinning Of Copper From Copper Sulphate Solutions, James L. Owings May 1952

The Effect Of Ferric Iron Upon The Current Efficiency And The Deposition Of Copper In The Electrowinning Of Copper From Copper Sulphate Solutions, James L. Owings

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

In the hydrometallurgy of copper, probably the most widely used method for the precipitation of copper is by electrolysis using insoluble anodes. The process is similar in many respects to the electrolytic refining of copper; one of the main differences is the use of insoluble anodes in electrowinning as compared to the use of impure copper anodes in electrorefining. Impurities, however, are common to both processes. The nature of these impurities differ and the problem of purifying the electrolyte is also different.


The Effect Of Iron Upon The Electrowinning Of Copper With An Amalgam Electrode, John A. Alexander May 1952

The Effect Of Iron Upon The Electrowinning Of Copper With An Amalgam Electrode, John A. Alexander

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Current commercial use of the mercury cathode cell is limited to two types of electrolytic sodium cells-­the Castner cell and the Sorenson cell. Mercury as a cathode medium has also found application in polarographic analysis, a method of a simultaneous quantitative and qualitative analysis of several metal components of solution.


Electrowinning With Amalgam Electrode, Ralph V. Anderson Jr. May 1951

Electrowinning With Amalgam Electrode, Ralph V. Anderson Jr.

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Amalgam Metallurgy, a relatively new expression in the technology of metal extraction, was first chosen to describe certain new processes developed at the Duisburg Copper Works in Germany. The idea of using mercury, a costly and poisonous metal, as an intermediate in heavy chemical industry and in polarography are of recent origin; with the exception of a series of patents of little signif­icance and occasional comments in the literature, the work is hardly known.


Refining Of Low Grade Zinc-Gold Precipitates, John C. Stentz May 1942

Refining Of Low Grade Zinc-Gold Precipitates, John C. Stentz

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The purpose of this investigation was to ascertain if advantage could be taken of the copper in the precipitates as a collecting agent of the precious metals in the direct smelting furnace.The products produced to be low grade anode bullion and a slag low in precious metals, high in zinc and lead.


Electrolysis Of Molten Mixtures Of Galena And Lead Chloride., Donald Q. Cole May 1940

Electrolysis Of Molten Mixtures Of Galena And Lead Chloride., Donald Q. Cole

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Electrolysis of molten mixtures of lead chloride and galena was carried out under various conditions of temperature, time, composition, and current densities; without a diaphram, and with various diaphrams. Continuous runs, with necessary additions of lead sulfide and lead chloride to maintain a melt of the proper composition, were attempted on a small scale.
