Graphite Electrode

From Graphite and Carbon Electrodes


Graphite electrodes are used for the recycling of steel in the electric arc furnace industry, so called 'mini-mills.' We do not simply provide graphite electrodes and nipples as stand alone products to our customers. Rather, the focus is on the delivery of an entire 'product system', supported by sales and technical experts from the receipt of the customer's order, throughout the entire production process, to final product in the steel plants.

Super long Graphite Electrode:

Super long Graphite Electrode:

In the past the maximum electrode length supplied by SGL Group was 2,900 mm. SGL Group’s new fully integrated graphite facility in Banting (Malaysia) is capable of producing electrodes up to a length of 3,800 mm. The “super long” graphite electrodes provide the following advantages for each customer:

  • 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
