700mm UHP Graphite Electrode

Graphite electrodes are a crucial technological component in the energy-saving production of steel from steel scrap. They enable the precise processing of scrap into new, high-quality steel grades in electric arc furnaces. The electrodes conduct the current directly into the furnace, where they create an arc hotter than 3,500 °C between themselves and the scrap, causing the steel to melt. The cylindrical graphite electrodes are manufactured in an extremely complex production process. Graphite electrodes are characterised by high thermal conductivity, low electrical resistance and high mechanical strength. They are also extremely heat-resistant.

TOKAI ERFTCARBON supplies graphite electrodes to steelworks all over the world. As one of the market leaders in this segment, we are a classic hidden champion that helps to conserve resources and reduce CO2 emissions with our quality products.
