The electrode paste market has developed by leaps and bounds since 2005. The good development of the electrode paste Market is due to the renewal of China’s carbide industry and the opportunities brought by the great development of the carbide industry.
The electrode paste is also called self baking electrode. The electrode paste is roasted by the heat in the submerged arc furnace. Therefore, matching the consumption speed of the electrode with the roasting speed is one of the keys to the use of the electrode paste. Due to the development of the submerged arc furnace technology, the electrode paste is gradually developed in the direction of large-scale and airtight. During the roasting process, the more heat transfer and radiant heat obtained by the open furnace type in the past are only one type of heat transfer, So that the heat obtained by the electrode from the furnace is greatly reduced. Electrode paste is a conductive material used for electric furnace equipment such as ferroalloy furnace and carbide furnace.
It can withstand high temperature and has a small coefficient of thermal expansion. The electrode paste has a relatively small resistance coefficient and can reduce the loss of electric energy. It has a small porosity and can slow the oxidation of the heated electrode. Moreover, it has high mechanical strength so that the electrode will not be broken due to the influence of mechanical and electrical loads.
