What is HP graphite?
HP graphite electrode is basically made of calcined petroleum needle coke and coal tar pitch, to be used in high-power electric arc furnace for steelmaking or to refine steel in ladle furnace that withstands current density of 18-25/cm2. Graphite electrodes of different diameters are used according to the capacity of the electric furnace. If you are looking for best price HP graphite electrode, RP graphite electrode or UHP graphite electrode, KFCC with more than 20 years production experience can definitely help with your project!
How does high-power graphite electrode work?
The principle of graphite electrode is to generate an electric arc by discharging between the electrode and the charge in the electric furnace, resulting in electric energy in the arc light. Converted into heat energy, while laying and heating of the arc melts metal and slag, smelting steel of various compositions.
What are large graphite electrodes used for?
The large graphite electrodes are important conducting material for electric furnace steel-making that releases electric energy in the form of arc to heat and melt furnace burden. Additionally, HP graphite electrode can also be used as conducting material to smelt yellow phosphorus, industrial silicon, abrasive material and production of alloy steel, metal and nonmetallic materials, mainly include:
- Arc furnace for steelmaking.
- Production of ferroalloy, pure silicon, yellow phosphorus, copper ice, calcium carbide mine thermoelectric furnace.
- Melting glass furnace and electric furnace for producing silicon carbide.
