uhp 500 graphite electrode reports: India’s HEGuhp 500 graphite electrode production will increase by 31% year-on-year. India’s HEG company, which has an annual production capacity of 80,000 tons of uhp 500 graphite electrode, is expected to produce 72,000 tons in 2018, compared with about 55,000 tons last year, a source of the company disclosed to Carbon. The source said that the supply of needle coke last year was tight, resulting in low output of uhp 500 graphite electrode.
We mainly export to the Middle East and the United States,” the source said. The current CIF price of 600mm ultra-high power uhp 500 graphite electrode is at 15,000-16,000 US dollars/ton, and it is expected to stabilize in the first quarter of next year. They currently have no inventory. The company mainly It produces mm high-power and mm ultra-high-power uhp 500 graphite electrodes, and imports oil-based needle coke from the United Kingdom and the United States. The output of mm ultra-high-power uhp 500 graphite electrodes accounts for about 55%.
About 85% of its needle coke needs to be imported. Currently, the ex-factory price of 600mm ultra-high-power uhp 500 graphite electrode in the Chinese market is 110-120 thousand yuan/ton, the same as at the beginning of the month. Source: uhp 500 graphite electrode (www.fzhsts.cn)
