The effects of iron,silicon,nickel and copper on the reaction of aluminum subchloride process were investigated by the flow method of aluminum trichloride at reduced pressure and in the temperature range of 900°∼1100°C.
In all cases, the extraction rate of aluminum decreased with the increase in the contents of alloying elements, and increased with increasing temperature and supplying rate of aluminum trichloride. The extraction rate of aluminum could be expressed by the following equation including activity of aluminum and partial pressure of aluminum trichloride.
V = 1.28aAl2 · PAlCl34/3 · e-11800/RT (Al g/cm2 · min)
