The purpose of this investigation was to design and construct a laboratory size electrolytic cell in which to reduce alumina, using the same basic materials that are used in a commercial size cell. The cell was designed to have a capacity of approximately 100 grams of metallic aluminum produced every 8 hours. The cell was constructed so it could be operated continuously.
