Is graphite A electrode? Graphite electrode market and use
After graphitization process, the electrode would become graphite electrode, So let DanCarbon talk about Is graphite A electrode? Graphite electrode market and What is the use of graphite electrodes.
1. Is graphite A electrode?
Graphite is a crystalline form of the element carbon with its atoms arranged in a hexagonal structure. It occurs naturally in this form and is the most stable form of carbon under standard conditions. It is a good conductor of heat and electricity. Its high conductivity makes it useful in electronic products such as electrodes, batteries, and solar panels. Due to that feature,after graphitization process, the electrode, which is made of needle coke or petroleum coke and coal tar pitch, would become graphite electrode.
2. What is the use of graphite electrodes
Graphite electrodes are used primarily in Electric Arc Furnace or Ladle Furnace steel manufacturing. Graphite electrodes can provide high levels of electrical conductivity and capability of sustaining the extremely high levels of generated heat. Graphite electrodes are also used in the refinement of steel and similar smelting processes.
3. Graphite electrode market
The market is segmented based on the product type as ultra-high power (UHP), high power (HP), and regular power (RP). UHP is expected to remain the most dominant as well as the fastest-growing electrode type. Higher durability, higher thermal resistance, and superior quality are some of the properties that are propelling the demand for UHP graphite electrode, especially in the steel industry. Dan Carbon is a China-based enterprise, specializing in manufacturing graphite electrodes with various specifications, ranging from the diameter of 350 mm to 750 mm, and length up to 3000 mm.
