Graphite block is an important graphite product, which manufacturing method is similar to that of graphite electrodes, but it is not a by-product of graphite electrodes. There are many distinct varieties of graphite block, and the production process is complicated with a production cycle of up to 2 months or more. At the same time, there are many kinds and names of graphite blocks in the industry. They are listed as follows.
According to the processing procedures, it can be divided into extruded graphite block, moulded graphite block, and isostatically pressed graphite block.
According to the particle sizes, it can be divided into fine particle graphite block, medium and coarse graphite block, and coarse graphite block.
Solid graphite block has a wide range of applications.
1. Used as silicon carbide furnace, graphitization furnace, and other metallurgical furnaces. Resistance furnace is used as a furnace lining, insulation material, conductive material, and impermeable graphite heat exchanger.
2. To create a variety of molds, including hot-pressing molds, static casting molds, centrifugal casting molds, die casting molds, melt casting refractory molds, and so on.
3. Electrolytic cathode and anode materials are made of metal.
Graphite block from WH has the following features:
High bulk density, low resistivity, oxidation resistance, corrosion resistance, high temperature resistance, and superior electrical conductivity are among the characteristics of graphite blocks.
