AP60 and APXe - A breaktrough in productivity,
energy consumption and emissions

AP60 technology, fabrication, aluminium smelter
At Rio Tinto, we are proud to announce the latest generation of AP Technology™ pots built at industrial scale.

The AP60 pot enables a step change in productivity by overcoming the challenges of very high amperage smelting technology. It's the result of years of continuous and focused efforts in R&D and pilot-scale operations.

The APXe pot adresses the challenges of very low energy consumption (12.3MWh/t) at the amperage over 500 kA

Both AP60 and APXe are based on the same optimised framework (busbars, shell and superstructure).
AP60 and APXe redefine the industry benchmark, providing with the world's most advance and competitive smelter technology.
