What is Graphite Electrode?

Artificial graphite electrode is an indispensable material used in the electric arc furnace steel making, for its excellent electrical conductivity and remarkable anti-thermal shock capability.

In general, carbon is produced by carbonizing mixed coke substances with binding pitch at 1,000°C in a baking furnace. When this carbon is graphitized in an electric furnace at 3,000°C, the amorphous carbon body takes on the structure of crystalline graphite. This is called graphite. Carbon materials are usually pitch impregnated and re-baked to enhance electrical and mechanical properties before graphitization.

Graphite has the features of---
High temperature strength
Good thermal and electrical conductivity
Low thermal expansion
Appropriate machinability

These features make graphite electrode the most suitable material to melt scraps, DRI, etc. by arc energy.Raygroup can produce diameter from 100 MM to 800MM (For DIA bigger than 650mm, it is RP GRADE). And different grades according to user’s request. We warmly welcome your inquiry!
