UHP electrodes are the latest breakthrough in graphite electrode production technology, and they provide several key advantages over traditional graphite electrodes. Some of these advantages include:
High current density: UHP electrodes have the highest current density capability currently available, up to 150-200 kA/cm2. This allows for more efficient use of energy and higher production rates.
High mechanical strength: UHP electrodes have greater mechanical strength than traditional graphite electrodes. This makes them better able to withstand mechanical vibrations and shocks and to reduce electrode breakage.
High resistance to oxidation: UHP electrodes offer superior resistance to oxidation when used at high temperatures. This helps to extend their life span and enables them to be used in extreme conditions.
High thermal conductivity: UHP electrodes are able to transfer heat away from the arc easily, which helps to reduce the risk of slag and oxidation on the electrodes.
Reduced electrical erosion: UHP electrodes have much lower electrical erosion rates, reducing the accumulation of dust and slag.
High control: Advanced production technologies have allowed UHP electrodes to be easier to control and adjust compared to traditional graphite electrodes.
In conclusion, UHP graphite electrodes offer a wide range of advantages over other types of graphite electrode, such as superior current density, higher mechanical strength, superior oxidation resistance at high temperatures, high thermal conductivity and low electrical erosion. These advantages make UHP electrodes an ideal choice for many different industrial applications, such as electric arc furnaces, ladle furnaces and so on.
Our advantage for graphite electrode is: We can produce diameter from 100MM to 800MM (For DIA bigger than 650mm, it is RP GRADE). And different grades according to user’s request.
