Application and performance of graphite electrode

Types for  Graphite Electrode

UHP (Ultra High Power); HP (high Power);  RP(  Regular Power )


Application for graphite Electrode

1) Graphite electrode material can be mainly used in electric furnace steelmaking. Electric furnace steelmaking uses graphite electrode to introduce working current into the furnace. the strong current at the lower end of the electrode can affect the arc discharge through these gas environment, the heat generated by the arc is used for smelting. The size of the capacitance, equipped with graphite electrodes with different diameters, continuously usable electrodes, connected to the electrode joint between the electrodes



2) Used in mine electric furnace. Used for the production of mainly iron furnace ferroalloy, pure silicon, yellow phosphorus, calcium carbide and copper matte, its characteristic is that the lower part of the conductive electrode is buried in the charge, so in addition to the electric plate and the charge between the arc to generate heat, the current through the charge by the resistance of the charge also generate heat.


3) Used of resistance furnace.  In the production process, graphitization furnace for graphite material products, melting furnace for glass and electric furnace for production and silicon carbide are all resistance furnace. The material management in the furnace is not only a heating resistance, but also the object to be heated.


4) Hot die-casting mold and vacuum furnace heating element and other special-shaped products

It should also be noted that in the graphite materials including graphite electrode, graphite mold and graphite crucible 3 kinds of high temperature composite materials, three graphite materials at high temperature, graphite is easy to oxidation combustion reaction, thus on the surface of the plastic material of the carbon layer, improve the porosity of the structure of life.
