Reduce the consumption of electrode oxidation in EAF steelmaking
• Reducing the oxidation consumption around the electrode, strengthening the sealing of the furnace and reducing the air intrusion into the furnace; minimizing the exposure time of red-hot electrodes outside the furnace and standardizing the oxygen blowing operation.
• For smelting furnaces, if conditions permit, spray cooling technology can effectively reduce the side oxidation consumption of electrodes.
• Spraying antioxidants on the surface of electrodes in steel plants or using antioxidant impregnation technology before the electrodes leave the factory can improve the antioxidant performance of the electrodes.
