Title: METHOD AND ARRANGEMENT FOR CONTROLLING THE ELECTRICAL CIRCUIT IN AN ELECTROLYTIC PROCESS
Abstract:
The invention relates to a method and to an arrangement for controlling the electrical circuit in an electrolytic process. The method comprises electrically connecting at least one first electrode (1) of an electrolytic cell (3) to at least one first electrode (1) of an adjacent electrolytic cell (3) by placing at least one shorting device block (7) into a position to short circuit said electrolytic cell (3) to provide with the shorting device blocks (7) and with the first electrodes (1) a path for the electrical circuit in the electrolytic process past the second electrodes (2) and the electrolyte in said electrolytic cell (3) to the first electrodes (1) of said adjacent electrolytic cell (3).
