  • Basic information of graphite electrode

    The graphite electrode is mainly made of petroleum coke and needle coke, and coal tar is used as a binder. It is made by calcination, compounding, kneading, pressing, roasting, graphitization and machining. It is an electric arc in the electric arc furnace. A conductor that heats and melts the charge. Graphite electrodes are used in steelmaking electric arc furnaces and refining furnaces as ...

  • What is a Rotary Tube Furnace?

    By definition, a rotary tube furnace is a heat-treating circular furnace, which rotates during heat-treatment. Samples are transported through the furnace in a circular path as they are heated. Rotary tube furnaces generally burn pulverized, solid, gaseous or liquid fuel into its working section, and then the heating gases created flow towards the sample. These furnaces feature a metal drum ...

  • What is a Tempering Furnace?

    A tempering furnace is a type of industrial oven designed to heat treat a ferrous metal product and increase its toughness. In metallurgical terms, the toughness of an alloy describes its capacity for elastic deformation and energy absorption before the material fractures. It is part of a complex relationship between a metal’s ductility and its strength, with high toughness values requiring ...
