Graphite Electrodes: A Trend Report

Follow us on LinkedIn -Graphite Electrodes offers excellent current carrying capacity and thermal resistance, and are primarily used in electric arc furnaces for scrap steel and iron melting purposes. Graphite electrodes are manufactured by using petroleum coke, which is first mixed with coal tar pitch, followed by extrusion and shaping of the mixture. Strong demand for graphite electrodes from the steel and aluminum sectors is expected to drive growth in the market over the coming years. While the steel industry ranks as the largest end-use sector, future growth will stem largely from other emerging applications such as rechargeable lithium–ion batteries. Lithium–ion battery manufacturers currently prefer spherical graphite electrodes over synthetic electrodes, as the former offers a larger surface area and improved porosity.
