In the submerged arc furnace equipment, the electrode is the “heart” of the submerged arc furnace. The quality of the electrode directly affects the product production. The electrode is made of self baking electrode paste as the primary raw material and baked by the producer of the submerged arc furnace. The quality of the self baking electrode paste and the operating level of the producer of the submerged arc furnace affect the electrode quality together. The electrode has the effect of conducting current and converting electric energy into thermal energy in the ore thermal power furnace.
In industrial production, electric current is input into the furnace through the electrode to generate an arc. The first thing to use is that the arc can release heat and exercise the product at high temperature. The production and operation effect of submerged arc furnace directly depends on whether the electrode is in normal operation. If there is a problem with the electrode, such as hard break, soft break, too short, too long, crack, leakage, burning, etc., it will affect the normal production of the product, sometimes resulting in several hours or even days of furnace shutdown. In serious cases, personal accidents may occur, which is a great waste of manpower, material resources and financial resources.
