Electrical Insulation

Electrical Insulation


Aluminium reduction is an electrolytic process that requires a large DC electrical current to be transmitted through the various structures and equipment that compile a potroom. Hence, components of negative and positive voltage potentials must be isolated electrically to prevent short circuits and to allow the series-connected cells in the potroom to function.
