From graphite rounds to heat-retention electrodes: calculation and design
The preceding electrical calculation has a substantial influence on the design of the finished piece. This calculation follows the following steps:
- identify the existing electrical supply (transformer)
- determine the graphite grades available
- calculate the electrical resistance
From these steps we develop a proposal for the design, taking the spatial conditions on site into account.
Optimized service life of heat-retention electrodes made from graphite
In the case of heat-retaining electrodes, their service life can be significantly increased by the choice of the right grade of graphite as well as further treatments such as an anti-oxidation impregnation.
