Less jointing due to longer electrodes – therefore fewer joint issues
Decrease of electrode jointing time due to fewer joints leading to increased productivity
Less electrode columns in parking position will yield less oxidation and graphite losses
Lower production costs resulting from increased number of heats between electrode additions
Graphite electrodes from ZSC are designed for increased productivity and customer value. Our continuous improvements in material properties as well as increased dimensions provide the customer the benefit of applying higher current loads.
