What are eaf electrode and eaf electrode price
By:Win May 13, 2021
Due to the great change of electrode raw material price and long production cycle, the electrode price of all electric arc furnace changes very fast.
Electric arc furnace electrode is extended into the electric arc furnace as a conductive rod used. It converts electrical energy into heat and melts scrap steel.

Electric arc-method steelmaking is the general method in steel production. The electric arc generated by the discharge between the graphite electrode and the metal charge is used to heat and melt the charge. More than 90% of the world's electric arc furnace steel is produced by EAF, and a small amount is produced by induction furnaces and electroslag furnaces.
1.The thermal efficiency of electric arc furnace steelmaking is as high as 65%, reducing energy waste.
2.The temperature below the electrode is as high as 3000℃, which can melt all kinds of metal charge.
3.Electric arc-method steelmaking is easy to adjust and control, which can smelt different steel grades.
