calcium carbide furnace

Electrode paste application range

The use of electrode paste to supply ferroalloy furnaces, calcium carbide furnaces and other electric furnace equipment has become another trend. The main raw materials for the production of electrode paste are anthracite and metallurgical coke. Currently, two electrode pastes with different formulations are produced.

One is the so-called standard electrode paste. It is widely used in ferroalloy furnaces and medium and small calcium carbide furnaces. This electrode paste uses medium pitch with a softening point of 65-75°C (determined by the mercury method) as the binder.

The height of the electrode paste

The height of the electrode paste refers to the height from the upper end of the electrode clip to the top of the electrode paste. If the electrode paste is too high, the coarse and fine particles in the electrode paste are prone to stratification

What is electrode paste

Electrode paste is a conductive material supplied to electric furnace equipment such as ferroalloy furnaces and calcium carbide furnaces. Electrode paste is also called self-baking electrode.
