graphite manufacturing process
The main process characteristics of graphite manufacturing process
Graphite is an important allotrope of carbon that we have learned in middle school chemistry textbooks. In the natural state, carbon can only be formed at high temperatures. In many parts of the world, such as New York in the United States, Heilongjiang in my country, etc., are places rich in graphite.
The graphite electrode is a material made of graphite for production and experimentation. High-purity graphite electrode is a graphite electrode with a content of more than 99.9%, and it is a good quality product among the graphite electrodes. Now, let us briefly understand the main process characteristics of high-purity graphite manufacturing process.
What is called a block graphite electrode in the industry is a dense crystalline graphite electrode. Its main structural feature is relatively dense crystals. This kind of graphite electrode has good stability, very compact, relatively strong, high grade but not very good plasticity and slipperiness, which is mainly due to its compact structure.
Scale graphite electrode
The graphite crystal of the scale graphite electrode is different from the dense crystal graphite electrode, and its crystal is scaly like its name. Although the taste of this graphite manufacturing process is not very high, it has very good plasticity and surface lubricity.
Cryptocrystalline graphite electrode
In addition to the above two, there is a more common type of graphite electrode that is cryptocrystalline. The crystal diameter of this graphite manufacturing process is very small, the surface of the graphite electrode lacks luster, and the lubrication performance is relatively poor, but the advantage is that it has a relatively high taste, so it is still widely used.
