Chinese uhp graphite electrode and china uhp graphite electrode price
By:YvonneSep 24, 2020
At present, the quality of China's ultra-high power graphite electrodes is comparable to that of Europe, America, Japan and Russia.
Chinese uhp graphite electrode UHP graphite electrode main ingredient is high-value needle coke which is made from either petroleum or coal tar. It's used for the recycling of steel in the big electric arc furnace industry.
Graphite electrodes are machined into cylinders and threaded regions are machined at both ends. In this way, the graphite electrodes can be assembled into an electrode column using electrode nipple. In recent years, Chinese graphite electrode manufacturers have invested a lot of energy in the research and development of ultra-high power graphite electrodes, and have been able to produce ultra-high power graphite electrodes with a diameter of 800 mm in small batches. Local graphite electrode manufacturers in China include Fangda Carbon, Kaifeng Carbon, Dan Carbon, Jilin Carbon and so on. DanCarbon's ultra-high power graphite electrodes with a diameter of 800mm have been tested and qualified in Japanese steel plants.

In 2020, the market price of graphite electrode in China has dropped significantly, with the price of ultra-high 550mm and 600mm graphite electrode dropping by 17% compared to the end of March and 60% compared to the same period in 2019. At present, the price of graphite electrode is basically close to the historical low, but the price of raw materials is relatively high at this stage, so suitable for ordering.
According to customs data, from January to December in 2020, China exported 306,000 tons of graphite electrodes, 13.8% less than the same period last year. The total amount of graphite electrode export was USD742.977 million, which was USD140718.3 million less than last year.... ...Read More>>
