Graphite electrode steelmaking is to input electric energy into the electric arc steelmaking furnace through the graphite electrode, and the electric arc generated between the electrode end and the charge is used as the heat source for steelmaking. The electric arc furnace uses electric energy as the heat source, and the atmosphere in the furnace can be adjusted, which is extremely beneficial for smelting steel grades that contain more oxidizable elements. When smelting various alloy steels and ferroalloys, graphite electrodes are used.
At this time, a strong current is introduced into the smelting zone of the electric furnace through the electrodes to generate an electric arc, which converts electrical energy into heat energy, and the temperature rises to about 2000 degrees, so as to achieve smelting or reaction. purpose. In addition, when electrolyzing metal magnesium, aluminum, and sodium, the anode of the electrolytic cell also uses graphite electrodes. The resistance furnace that produces emery also uses graphite electrodes as the conductive material of the furnace head. The produced graphite electrodes of various specifications such as ordinary / high power / ultra high power / impregnation, etc., have the characteristics of wear resistance, high temperature resistance, corrosion resistance, impact resistance, oxidation resistance, and easy electrical conductivity and heat conduction.
