How does the quality of the electrode paste affect the electrode?
Electrode paste is a conductive material used for electric furnace equipment such as ferroalloy furnace and carbide furnace. How does the quality of the electrode paste affect the electrode? The following is a detailed explanation for you:
1. The ash adhesion strength of the electrode paste is poor, and the adhesion strength is even worse at the place where the ash is concentrated. This place consumes quickly and is easy to be hard broken due to mechanical strain. Therefore, the ash content should be kept ≤ 3.
2. If the softening point of the electrode paste is low, the coking value after sintering is low, and the strength of the motor is poor, it is easy to cause electrode accidents.
3. The high resistivity of the electrode paste indicates that the graphitization degree of the electrode paste is low, the conductivity is poor, the oxidation resistance of the electrode is poor, and the electrode after baking is rigid and the electrode is easy to break.
