Title
(EN) INTERVENTION TOOL FOR USING AN ELECTROLYTIC CELL
(FR) OUTIL D'INTERVENTION POUR L'EXPLOITATION D'UNE CUVE D'ELECTROLYSE
Abstract
(EN)
The invention relates to an intervention tool (2) that is movable and designed to reposition an anode assembly (38) of an electrolytic cell (3). The intervention tool (2) comprises a frame (22) provided with one or more bearing surfaces (220) allowing the intervention tool (2) to bear against and to be stably supported directly on at least one element of the electrolytic cell (3) and an intervention unit designed to reposition the anode assembly (38).
(FR)
Cet outil (2) d'intervention est déplaçable et destiné à repositionner un ensemble (38) anodique d'une cuve (3) d'électrolyse. L'outil (2) d'intervention comprend un bâti (22) muni d'une ou plusieurs surfaces (220) d'appui permettant à l'outil (2) d'intervention de prendre appui et d'être supporté de manière stable directement sur au moins un élément de la cuve (3) d'électrolyse et une unité d'intervention destinée à repositionner l'ensemble (38) anodique.
