The common five applications of graphite electrodes

1.Graphite electrode for AC arc furnace steelmaking
2.Graphite electrode for DC arc furnace
3.Graphite electrode for mine electric furnace
4.Graphite electrode for resistance furnace
5.Graphite electrode for the preparation of shaped graphite products

1.Graphite electrode for AC arc furnace steelmaking

Graphite electrode for AC arc furnace steelmaking

Electric furnace steelmaking is the largest use of graphite electrodes. The graphite electrode for steelmaking accounts for 70% to 80% of the total amount of graphite electrode.

2.Graphite electrode for DC arc furnace

Graphite electrode for DC arc furnace

Electric furnace steelmaking is the largest use of graphite electrodes. The graphite electrode for steelmaking accounts for 70% to 80% of the total amount of graphite electrode.

3.Graphite electrode for resistance furnace

Graphite electrode for mine electric furnace

The ore electric furnace is mainly used to produce industrial silicon and yellow phosphorus. The graphite electrode is about 100kg for every 1T silicon produced, and about 40kg for graphite electrode is produced for each 1T yellow phosphorus.

4.Graphite electrode for AC arc furnace steelmaking

Graphite electrode for resistance furnace

A graphitization furnace for producing graphite products, a melting furnace for melting glass, and an electric furnace for producing silicon carbide are all electric resistance furnaces.

5.Graphite electrode for the preparation of shaped graphite products

The graphite electrode blank is used to prepare shaped graphite products, such as: processed into various types of crucibles, molds, boats and heating elements, graphite electrode joints and other shaped graphite products.
