Current Distribution in Modern Copper Refining

The copper industry was based essentially on the use of a copper starter sheet as the substrate for the refined copper deposition. In the 1970's operating current densities with this technology were typically around 220-250 amps per square metre. There was a clear recognition that the maintenance of

In the electrolytic refining of copper, a thin sheet of high-purity Cu serves as the cathode. The blister copper plates are taken and used as anodes in an electrolyte bath of copper sulfate, CuSO4, and sulfuric acid H2SO4. As current is passed through the solution, pure copper from the anodes is plated out onto pure copper cathodes and the ...
