NTIS: PB 247 327 :21 pages
Electrowinning of copper from chloride solutions in a diaphragm cell was studied by the Bureau of Mines. The copper powder product was shaken periodically from the cathode and removed from the bottom of the cell. The effects of copper concentration, brine concentration, copper chloride species, and cell voltage were investigated. Power consumption of 1.1 and 2.1 Kw-hr/kg were obtained with cuprous and cupric chloride solutions, respectively.
