Anode changing vehicles

Our anode changing machines are a common feature of primary aluminium production sites. They pull out used anodes, replacing or repositioning them like no other. Precise handling is achieved by selecting the right tools and controls. They also provide an essential wide view of the anode and the pot.

Change or reposition

The changing vehicles pull out the used anodes (butts) and replace the used anodes for a new anode. The anode changing machine can also be used to reposition anodes.

Tools will fit your requirements

Precise handling of the anode is achieved by choosing the right tools and controls. Besides the right options a good view on the anode and the pot is essential to assure a smooth proces. The type of pots (reduction cells) and the production process itself determine the optimal design of the Anode Changers.
