graphite electrode

In the steel making process, iron scrap gets melted in an electric arc furnace and recycled. Graphite electrodes, a kind of conductor, are an essential component in this kind of furnace. They can melt scrap at a temperature of about 1600℃.

What are Graphite Electrodes?

Continuous development in Electric Arc Furnaces & Ladle Technology has led to the need for Graphite Electrodes of very stringent quality. Emergence of DRI, HBI, Sponge Iron as a potential source of raw material as against steel scrap revolutionized Electric Steel Making Industry, Higher Capacities of Electric Arc Furnace with bigger size, UHP Electrodes are common requirements of Electric Steel Industry. The emphasis is on better consumption norms & least electro-mechanical problems. ZhongTang keeps abreast of technological developments in EAF’s at its customers end in order to carry on R&D efforts to meet their ever-changing and or their demanding requirements.

Graphite Electrodes Varieties

For DC Furnaces (direct current furnaces) / Size: 20-28 inches

Electrodes for DC furnaces, which require 1 column of graphite electrodes. High maximum current density. The diameter of these electrodes is getting bigger.

Graphite Electrode-DC

For AC Furnaces (alternating current furnaces) / Size: 16-28 inches.

Alternating current furnaces require 3 columns of graphite electrodes. They mostly use 20-28 inch electrodes, the standard size in electric furnaces.

For LF Furnaces (refining furnaces) / Size: 8-18 inches

These electrodes are for refining materials like molten steel. LF Furnaces have a smaller capacity than DC.
