Prabhakaram, P and Murthy, H P S (1961) A Study of the Production of Soederberg Paste from Indian Raw Materials. In: Symposium on Light Metal Industry in India, Feb. 14-17, NML, Jamshedpur.
CONTINUOUS self-baking electrodes of the Soederberg type are used in electrolytic extraction of metals such as aluminium and in electric smelting of pig iron and certain Ferro -alloys. These electrodes are made of carbon paste tamped in situ in hollow sheet metal colum- ns that travel downward as the electrodes get consumed in the furnace. The descending paste gets baked by heat of the furnace and thereby becomes it fairly rigid and dense conductor when it contacts the electric bus-bars. Below this point there is virtually no difference between this and prebaked amorphous carbon electrodes.
