Product category: Graphite electrodes

Graphite Electrodes

Electric arc furnaces rely on graphite electrodes to generate the heat required to melt scrap during the production of steel. Modern mini-mills conduct their primary melting with electric arc furnaces, while achieving the required final metallurgical properties through refining the steel in a ladle metallurgy furnace. Mini-mills are the primary market for graphite electrodes, however many steel and iron foundries continue to melt with electric arc furnaces, as do precious metal reduction applications.

Superior Graphite produces ARK® Graphite Electrodes to serve the small diameter market, producing 8" through 18" (200 mm - 450 mm) graphite electrodes.

Custom Manufactured Graphite Electrodes

Since 1984, Superior Graphite has been the leading producer of small diameter graphite electrodes. Our Russellville, Arkansas, USA facility specializes in the production of 200 mm - 450 mm (8" - 18") diameter high power (HP) and ultra-high power (UHP) ARK® electrodes, offered in 3 TPI, 4 TPI, and male / female joining systems. Specializing in the small diameter market enables Superior Graphite to apply years of graphite manufacturing experience and knowledge to our customers’ applications including: primary melting, ladle metallurgy, and specialty furnace applications worldwide.

Superior Graphite utilizes unique, continuous in-line graphitization furnaces allowing us to assure consistent, uniform properties throughout the entire electrode. This uniformity results in lower consumption and enhanced performance required by our customers.

ARK® electrodes are machined to exact dimensions and tolerances following NEMA, JIS, or IEC industrial standards. Once machined, ARK® electrodes are packaged and shipped to our customers’ doorsteps throughout the world.

Electro-Thermal Purification Services

Committed to staying on the cutting edge of new and emerging technologies, Superior Graphite frequently engages in cooperative research with university and government laboratories. One of our many successes is our continuous electro-thermal purification technology, which exposes carbon and graphite materials to temperatures up to 3,000°C to produce granulated powders, in sizes from 150-1,250 microns, with a high carbon content and virtually free of impurities. Removing volatile gases and select heavy materials creates a highly ordered crystalline structure with exceptional purity, consistent quality, and increased resiliency, lubrication, and thermal and electrical conductivity. All powders undergo both physical and chemical analyses to guarantee purity greater than 99.95%.Our continuous process technology, the only one in the industry, allows us to produce large quantities at a much faster pace and more cost-effectively than traditional batch processing. We accommodate multiple packaging options - from paper bags to metal drums to hopper train cars - as well as supply inventory, warehousing, and distribution services to help streamline your operations. For complete details about our electro-thermal purification services, please see the table below or call us today to discuss your application.

Silicon Carbide Shapes and Powders

Known industry-wide as a producer of high quality silicon carbide (SiC) shapes and powders, Superior Graphite has the additional advantage of being one of the few manufacturers of both alpha (á)-SiC and beta (â)-SiC in business today. Our cutting-edge, continuous electro-thermal process and intricate wet attrition milling and air milling operations enable us to cost-effectively produce particle size ranges from a median of less than 0.5 micron, up to coarse 20 micron particles, including an assortment of macro and micro grits. The finest grades can be processed into sintered shapes that exhibit the excellent mechanical properties, hardness, corrosion resistance, and thermal conductivity required for high-performance applications.

Our SiC powders, known for their extreme hardness, are available in standard package sizes of 15 kg buckets, 150 kg drums, 320 kg bulk bags and custom packaging is available on request. Pressureless sintered SiC shapes are available in a range of sizes and thickness, with a water jet cutting in the green form allowing for custom shapes. We specialize in a variety of ceramic shapes and parts, including armor tiles among others. For more details about our SiC shapes and powders, please see the table below or call us today to discuss your requirements.

Grinding and Sizing Services

For more than 90 years, the grinding and sizing of granular materials has been at the core of Superior Graphite's business. Our continuous investment in the latest technology milling, blending, and classification systems, along with our engineering focus on the characterization of carbon and graphite, allow us to economically deliver premium quality custom carbon blends with precise particle size and morphology control.

In as little as 24 hours we can mill, grind, blend, size, and classify materials including all types of natural and synthetic graphites, delaminated flake, and a variety of cokes, to produce consistently sized particles from 1 micron to 3/8-inch with the correct morphology to meet the most demanding customer requirements. We also specialize in producing sub-micron sizes of a-silicon carbide. Whether we are processing large volume production runs for shipment in container trucks or small orders shipped in a tote, you can be sure of receiving the exact custom carbon blend, ground and sized to meet your application needs. For complete details about our grinding and sizing services, please see the table below or call us today to discuss your requirements.

Graphite & Carbon Powders

Superior Graphite consistently delivers high-quality, uniquely-sized carbon and graphite materials with unique particle size and the correct morphology to meet the most sensitive customer requirements. We globally-source and manufacture a full range of materials including flake, amorphous, and vein natural graphites, synthetic graphite, delaminated flake, and a variety of cokes.

Graphite is a form of carbon and truly is one of the most unique minerals, in that it is a great conductor of heat and electricity, is chemically inert, and is a great lubricant. Its name comes from the Greek word graphein, which means to write. Graphite has a hexagonal, layered lattice structure, and the bonds within a each hexagonal layer of are comprised of very strong covalent bonds. The bonds between the layers are Van der Waal bonds, which are very weak, contributing to the lubricity of graphite.

Diamond is another natural form of carbon, which is cubic in structure and contains covalent bonds throughout, contributing to its strength.

Graphite has a hardness of 2 on the Mohs scale of hardness (1 to 10 where 1 is the softest and 10 is the hardest), has a silvery sheen and a black streak. Diamond on the other hand, has a hardness of 10, is transparent and has no streak.

There are three main types of graphite all derived from metamorphism: amorphous, crystalline flake and crystallin
