Graphite is a crystalline, semi-metallic structure with one of three carbon allotropes. Graphite is most used in the steel and cast iron industries, and it can be said that carbon is an integral part of the structure of steel and cast iron, which with each percentage in the cast iron and steel melt, will induce different properties to these materials. The use of graphite in the metallurgical industry has a very wide range, which can be attributed to such things as:
- Increase the hardness of steel by adding graphite
Production of industrial metallurgical electrodes with coke petroleum press
- Reduction of steels and metal oxides by using carbon oxidation in the forms of metallurgical coke, thermal coal, coke, graphite, etc.
