For efficient operation of high-power aluminum reduction cells with prebaked anodes,full-time monitoring of the main technological parameters is required.This article discusses a multifunctional crust breaker of the automatic alumina feeding system. It provides the alumina supply to the bath by breaking the continuously solidifying crust on the surface of the melt. The multifunctional crust breaker is also a part of the automatic alumina feed system, providing regular automatic measurements of the process parameters.This article describes the development of a laboratory bench with a multifunctional crust breaking device. The goal and objectives are set. The design of the device is presented in the paper. The paper shows the advantages of using an automatic alumina feeding system with the developed multifunctional crust breaker.The positive effect of using the bench in the training process is discussed.
