AbstractAn improved apparatus and process for electrolytically producing a particulate crystalline metal product having limited adherence to the surface of a cathode, comprising a vertically elongated cathode, at least one vertically elongated anode spaced from said cathode, a vertically elongated permeable diaphragm disposed between said anode and cathode having a mesh member disposed adjacent to the surface of said diaphragm nearest said cathode, agitating said anode to substantially reduce the polarization voltage of said anode, and agitating said cathode to dislodge a portion of said crystalline product from said cathode by engaging said product with said mesh member.
