Uhp 600 graphite electrodes, uhp vs hp electrodes
UHP electrode is the electrode used in ultra high power arc furnace, which can shorten melting time and improve production efficiency effectively.
Uhp 600 graphite electrodes
More than 600mm in diameter is the electrode used in ultra-high power arc furnace of over 100 tons, UHP (ultra-high power) electrodes is made of needle coke and coal tar pitch through calcination, extrusion, impregnation, graphitization and mechanical processing.

Uhp vs hp electrodes
According to the power, there are 3 types of graphite electrode: RP, HP and UHP.
Hp graphite electrodes current
HP electrode is produced from high quality petroleum coke (or low grade needle coke) and requires dipping treatment. It has higher physical and mechanical properties than RP electrode, low resistivity, and allows a large current density.
UHP electrode must be produced by high-grade needle coke, and the graphitization heat treatment must be carried out in the inner series graphitization furnace, with the graphitization temperature up to 2800 ~ 3000°C. Lower resistivity, allowing greater current density, smaller linear expansion coefficient, excellent thermal shock resistance.
