Abstract

Fines in smelter-grade aluminas are recognized as a significant process problem in aluminum smelting. However understanding the nature of this fine material and how it impacts the reduction process arc, less clearly understood The combination of new analytical methods such as variable pressure scanning electron microscopy and very; high field solid state nuclear magnetic resonance provide new insights into the phases present and their spatial distribution within aluminas, and suggest how such fine materials are generated, particularly during calcination in the alumina refinery.
