The Process Of Manufacturing
Raw Material Selection
- Synthetic Graphite anodes originate from calcined petroleum coke, a by-product of oil refineries.
- The quality of the calcined petroleum coke is crucial, and only the most crystalline variants are chosen for high-quality synthetic graphite production.
- The selected calcined petroleum coke is initially in a gravelly form with a diverse grain distribution.
- To bind the particles into a cohesive substance with graphitic properties, coal tar pitch (CTP) is used as the only acceptable binder material.
- Heat is applied to make the CTP more fluid, ensuring thorough coating of the petcoke particles.
Extrusion and Shaping
- The coated mixture is extruded into oversized rounds, which serve as the precursor for anodes.
- The extruded rounds undergo a slow baking process at approximately 1,000°C for 2–3 weeks, preventing deformations and ensuring homogeneity.
- Porosity increases during baking, requiring a subsequent impregnation with CTP to achieve the desired density.
Secondary Baking and Carbon Rod Production
- After impregnation, the rounds undergo another round of baking for 2–3 weeks.
- The resulting product is a rod with the correct porosity for graphite anodes, but it remains pure carbon with limited conductive properties.
- Carbon rods are subjected to the graphitization process, which involves laying them end-to-end in a furnace.
- Loose petroleum coke covers the rods, and a low-voltage, high-amperage DC charge is applied, generating intense heat (around 2,300°C).
- The heat and electrical resistance induce a change in the grain structure, forming parallel structures and transforming the carbon rods into graphite rods over a 3–4 week period.
- The graphite rods undergo machining to meet specific tolerances, typically +1/4”, -0” in diameter and +1”, -0” in length.
- Some anodes may be pre-drilled for center connections during this machining step.
Final Treatment: Impregnation
- Many graphite rods undergo impregnation with either wax or phenolic resin.
- Wax treatment, being cost-effective, is commonly used, and American Carbon utilizes a vacuum pressure tank for efficient and even impregnation.
- The chosen paraffin wax acts as a barrier against moisture, preventing premature deterioration due to water infiltration.
