Carbon Graphite Solutions - Industry Leader Since 1939
Graphite electrodes are used in electric arc furnaces (EAF) and ladle furnaces (LF) for steel production, ferroalloy production, silicon metal production, and smelting process. The rising production of steel using the electric arc furnace process is expected to increase the demand for graphite. In refractories, natural graphite is used in the manufacture of crucibles and mag-carbon bricks. Graphite is also used as lining in steel converters and electric arc furnaces.

In the smelting process of graphite electrode consumption, the first problem to be solved is the joint fracture problem. The second consideration is the oxidation resistance and thermal shock resistance. How to reduce the consumption of the three electrodes is the technology of the carbon manufacturer and the smelting manufacturer.
Main ways to reduce graphite electrode consumption in ...
Synthetic graphite is extensively used for manufacturing graphite electrodes, which are used in electric arc furnaces for smelting metals such as steel and in the metallurgy industry. China is a major producer and consumer of steel at the global level despite a fall in demand for the metal in the country as compared to 2015.
Global Synthetic Graphite Market to Reach around US$ 7 Bn by 2026
Graphite electrode consumption during smelting is a significant component of the cost of steel production in EAF operations. Increased electrical conductivity holds the potential to reduce consumption losses in electrodes by utilising higher voltages and lower currents (long-arc operation). To further enhance electrode service, Hexagon developed
ASX Announcement 161129
Domestic resources of graphite are relatively small, but the rest of the world’s inferred resources exceed 800 million tons of recoverable graphite. Substitutes: Synthetic graphite powder, scrap from discarded machined shapes, and calcined petroleum coke compete for use in iron and steel production.

Doing this avoids the unproductive consumption in smelting. As a technical manufacturer, we know that the mismatch between the graphite electrode body and the nipple will lead to the electrode breaking during use. This not only just is an unproductive consumption in smelting, but also increases the amount of carbon in the molten steel.
