(2) Ingredients
(3) Binder
(4) Calcining.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”What is a prebaked anode?”]The prebaked anode (code name TY) is the conductive anode of the aluminum electrolytic cell. The raw materials for the production of the pre-baked anode are petroleum coke, pitch coke and coal pitch. It is made through the processes of calcination, pulverization, mixing, kneading, molding and roasting.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”What are the types of petroleum coke?”]According to the different coking process, petroleum coke can be divided into delayed petroleum coke and kettle coke. At present, the delayed coke produced by the delayed coking method is the most widely used.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”What are the characteristics of modified asphalt as a binder for carbon production?”]1. Coking: With high residual carbon value, more bonded coke can be produced during roasting, and the product has high mechanical strength.

2. High softening point, easy to solve long distance and transportation problems in summer.

3. In the process of kneading and kneading, less smoke escapes from asphalt, which can reduce environmental pollution.

4. When the modified asphalt is used, the temperature of the asphalt pipeline and the mixing temperature, the temperature of the molding and the material room should be increased correspondingly, and the melting temperature of the asphalt is also higher than that of the medium temperature asphalt.

5. Modified asphalt contains more resin and secondary QI, and has higher thermal stability, which is beneficial to improve the quality of carbon block products.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”Why is petroleum coke crushed before calcination?”]If the lump of petroleum coke is too large, not only the uniformity of the calcined coke quality cannot be guaranteed in the calcination process, but also the limitation of the calcination equipment causes difficulties in feeding and discharging, and also affects the efficiency of the crushing equipment. Therefore, the carbonaceous raw materials should be crushed to a medium size of about 40mm before calcination to ensure that the large and small pieces can be calcined at a uniform temperature. But the carbonaceous raw materials should not be finely broken, otherwise it will cause too much powder and increase the amount of burning loss.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”What is calcination?”]The process of high temperature (1200 ~ 1350 °C) heat treatment of carbonaceous raw materials under the condition of isolation of air is called calcination. Calcination is the first heat treatment process of carbon production. Calcination makes the structure and physical and chemical properties of various carbonaceous raw materials A series of changes have taken place.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”What is the purpose of calcination of petroleum coke raw materials? What are the quality indicators of calcination?”]The purpose is to:
1. Eliminate moisture and volatile matter in petroleum coke;
2. Improve the density and mechanical strength of petroleum coke;
3. Improve the conductivity of petroleum coke;
4. Improve the sun resistance of petroleum coke.
The calcined quality of petroleum coke is generally controlled by the two indexes of powder specific resistance and true density. The higher the calcining degree of petroleum coke, the lower the specific resistance of the calcined powder and the higher the true density.[/vc_toggle][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”2″ tab_id=”1616465532882-70911d8d-7bd0″][vc_toggle title=”What causes the unqualified screening?”]In carbon production, there are many factors that affect the purity of screening, such as the amount of feed, the uniformity of feed, the shape of the screen, the movement of the screen, the shape of the particles and the water content of the material. If the feeding amount is too large, the sieve layer is too thick, which will reduce the purity, and the uneven feeding will make the purity unstable. Inertial vibrating screens with square meshes are widely used in carbon production. The reciprocating movement and up-and-down vibration of the screen surface is beneficial for the material particles to contact the screen holes, and the relative movement between the material block and the screen surface is relatively large, which is beneficial to the improvement of the screening purity.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”What are the aspects of carbon production ingredients?”]

  3. When the sieve is in motion, pay close attention to the bearing temperature and lubrication system.
  4. Pay attention to whether the sieve has strong noise during operation, the vibration of the sieve should be balanced, and no abnormal swing is allowed. When the sieve swings, check whether the elasticity of the four support springs is consistent and whether there is any breakage.
  5. During the operation of the vibrating screen, the wear condition should be checked regularly. If excessive wear parts are found, they should be replaced in time.
  6. Frequently check whether the screen is loose and whether there is material leakage due to local abrasion of the screen. If found, stop and repair it immediately.

Adding a certain amount of pitch according to the regulations can make the paste kneaded uniformly and have good plasticity. During the kneading process, when the amount of dry material is added too much , You can add bitumen for blending, but if the bitumen amount is too much, you can’t add dry material for adjustment. This is because the fluidity of the added dry material particles is not as good as that of liquid bitumen, and cannot be evenly distributed in the entire paste. Instead, the paste is partially aggregated, and the phenomenon of dry material inclusion results in uneven quality of the entire paste.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”What are the factors that affect the quality of kneading?”]

  1. Temperature;
  2. Time;
  3. The nature of dry material;
  4. Binder.

[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”What is the basis for determining the mixing time?”]

  1. When the mixing temperature is low, the mixing time can be appropriately extended; when the mixing temperature is high, the mixing time can be appropriately shortened.
  2. Using a binder with a lower softening point, the kneading time can be appropriately shortened at the same kneading temperature.
  3. The more powdery small particles in the ingredients, the longer the kneading time should be properly extended.
  4. When adding raw shreds, the kneading time should be extended appropriately.
  5. If the machine stops for some reasons during kneading, keep warm and extend the kneading time.

[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”How to operate the kneading pot correctly?”]

  1. Before starting the machine, check the oil quantity of the reducer and the lubrication of the bearings, and check whether all fasteners are loose.
  2. After starting, always check the temperature, sound and vibration of the motor, reducer, bearing seat, the rotating parts of the kneading pot should be balanced during operation, no impact sound, no noise from gears, the temperature of each bearing does not exceed 70ºC, and the motor current is stable , Shut down immediately if there is any abnormality.
  3. The blanking should be uniform to prevent debris from entering.
  4. Stop feeding before stopping, and stop the machine after the material in standby is basically empty.

[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”How to control the mixing temperature of the paste?”]The most suitable mixing temperature of the paste depends on the softening point of the binder. Generally speaking, the mixing temperature should be 50~80ºC higher than the softening point of the binder. When using medium temperature asphalt, the mixing temperature should be kept at 115. Within ~~150ºC, 130ºC is the most appropriate. Using modified asphalt, the mixing temperature is increased to 160~180ºC.

During the kneading process, the kneading temperature is not allowed to be lowered below the specified level, otherwise the wettability of the binder to the aggregate particles and the fluidity of the paste will be reduced, making kneading difficult. Therefore, when the heating temperature is low, the kneading time should be extended, and the binder should be added after reaching the target. The kneading temperature also has a certain relationship with the climate. The temperature in winter is low, and the paste dissipates quickly after being out of the pot. Therefore, the kneading temperature in winter should be slightly higher than that in other seasons.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”Why should we control the dry mixing temperature of the dry materials?”]If the dry mixing temperature of the dry material is too low, the moisture that has been adsorbed on the surface of the solid carbon raw material particles cannot be removed. This water forms a very strong adsorption layer on the surface of the particles, which will significantly reduce the wetting effect of the asphalt on the solid carbon raw material particles. . If the temperature of the various dry material particles during dry mixing is lower than the temperature of the added liquid asphalt, when the asphalt is in contact with the dry material particles, the temperature of the asphalt will decrease, which will increase the viscosity of the asphalt and make the asphalt more sensitive to the dry material. The wetting and penetrating effects become worse, resulting in poor plasticity of the paste and lowering of the kneading quality of the paste. Therefore, to ensure that the dry mixing temperature of the dry material is close to the temperature of the liquid asphalt, the temperature of the dry material is generally 10ºC lower than the asphalt temperature.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”What is kneading? What role does it play in carbon production?”]The solid carbon raw material particles and powder together with the binder are stirred at a certain temperature and mixed to form a plastic paste. This production process is called kneading. Kneading plays a role in carbon production up to the following three aspects:


  1. Make all kinds of raw materials uniformly mixed, and at the same time make all kinds of particles of different sizes uniformly mixed and filled to form a mixture with a higher degree of firmness.
  2. It is convenient for the material and the binder to mix evenly, the liquid binder is evenly coated on the surface of the dry material particles, and all the particles are bonded to each other by the bonding force of the binder, giving the paste a plastic shape.
  3. Partially infiltrate the binder into the pores of the dry material particles to further improve the binder properties and the compactness of the paste.

[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”How to determine the amount of binder?”]

  1. The binder composition of the product formula;
  2. The nature of the material particles;
  3. Molding method.

[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”what is the role of the binder?”]

  1. It has good wettability and adhesion to carbon materials, so as to ensure that the paste has good plasticity.
  2. The binder should have a higher carbon content and coke reduction rate.
  3. The binder should be a thermoplastic material, which is solid at room temperature, melted into a liquid when heated slightly, and hardened immediately after cooling.
  4. Wide sources and low prices.

[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”how to stabilize the ingredients in the ingredient position?”]In order to ensure the stability of the particle size of the product ingredients, on the one hand, it is necessary to frequently sample from each storage hopper for screening analysis to check whether the purity of the ingredients fluctuates. If the fluctuation is too large, timely measures must be taken.


On the one hand, it is necessary to regularly take various granular materials from the storage hopper and perform screening analysis according to the percentage composition of the formula to check whether it meets the technical requirements. If it does not meet the requirements, immediately stop the ingredients, update and adjust the formula, or disqualify The batching can be continued until the required materials are discharged. The batching equipment must be checked regularly to maintain the accuracy of the batching to avoid batching errors. The weighing must be carried out in strict accordance with the batching list, and it must be fast and accurate. Can not exceed the specified error.[/vc_toggle][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”4″ tab_id=”1616481345299-3c87c13c-cf90″][vc_toggle title=”How to deal with a sudden power failure?”]1) Power outages in the whole workshop

  1. The carbon paste is thermoplastic and has a certain viscoelasticity. The ability to transmit pressure is not as good as that of liquids. The pressure in the paste shows a decreasing trend, resulting in uneven green density.
  2. The friction between the paste and the mold wall and the friction between the paste particles result in pressure loss, resulting in uneven pressure distribution and uneven density.
  3. There are differences in the orientation of the non-equiaxial particles in the paste on the surface and inside of the green body, which affects the uniformity of the green body density.

[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”Why should the green compact be cooled immediately?”]The green body produced by the new molding machine is made of plastic paste. It contains binder coal pitch to facilitate the viscous state. The shape and size of the green body are not stable. Therefore, the green body should be sprayed with water immediately after leaving the molding machine. Soak in cold water to cool down, so that the temperature of the green body drops below the softening point of the asphalt. The bitumen is cooled again and solidified into a solid state to stabilize the green body so that the green body will not bend and deform. The cooling water temperature should not be higher than 30ºC. Under normal circumstances, large-size blanks are soaked in cold water for 3 to 5 hours, and small and medium-sized blanks are soaked for 1 to 3 hours, and the blanks can be fully cooled.

After the fire goes out, report to the leader or dispatcher, find a maintenance worker, and resume production as soon as possible.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”Why do smoke evacuators and fire channels catch fire? How to prevent and reduce the occurrence of fire accidents?”]the reason:

  1. Because there are too many combustibles accumulated in the smoke exhauster and the fire channel, it will catch fire when encountering an open flame.
  2. In normal operation, sometimes the gas volume is opened too large, so that the gas cannot be fully burned in the fire channel, and it is pulled into the flue by the fire, causing a fire.
  3. When adjusting the negative pressure, it is raised too much at a time, so that the fire from the volatile matter enters the flue, causing a fire accident.
  4. If the flue temperature is too high and exceeds the specified range, it will also cause fire accidents.


  1. Clean up the remaining materials of the flue and smoke exhauster on a regular basis.
  2. Don’t pull the fire during the operation process, make the volatile matter fully burn in the fire channel, and make the chimney emit white smoke or light yellow smoke.

  4. Don’t raise too much at one time when adjusting negative pressure, but strengthen the sense of responsibility.

[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”What is the function of the exhaust fan and the air cooler?”]The exhaust fan extracts the heat from the cooling furnace chamber, and the blower sends air into the furnace chamber. Its functions are different. The exhaust fan extracts the heat from the cooling furnace chamber in order to cool the product, and the blower sends the air. In the cooling furnace chamber, it plays a certain role in cooling down, and can also play the role of secondary air to help the high temperature furnace chamber. The blower is also called the air cooler and the secondary fan. It is set up in the cooling furnace room to blow cold air.

First, close the butterfly valve of the main flue, start the smoke exhauster, install the burner frame, and all the equipment in place (temperature measurement frame), notify the gas station to send gas, check the gas pressure, and gas release. After everything is normal, adjust the negative pressure of each fire channel to increase the temperature.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”What effect does the rapid heating and cooling of the roaster have on the product quality?”]The temperature rises too fast, so that quite a lot of hydrocarbons are too late to decompose and polymerize and volatilize away, taking away many carbon atoms that can be called coke, and the coke formation is low. On the other hand, increasing the temperature difference in the furnace chamber causes the product to undergo decomposition and polymerization at different stages, and the internal and external expansion and contraction are inconsistent, causing cracks in the product and affecting product quality. When the temperature rises slowly, the hydrocarbon molecules can have a sufficient time to decompose and polymerize. The amount of coking of the product is thus increased, which can improve the quality of the product.


According to the requirement, the temperature is lowered by 50ºC per hour to 80ºC. If the temperature drops too fast, the product will cause breaks, cracks, and waste products.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”What are the advantages of the ring furnace?”]The product has high mechanical strength, good product quality, convenient temperature adjustment and control, high heat utilization rate and high output.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”What are the precautions for the operation of the temperature regulator of the roasting furnace?”]

  3. The filling material has too much moisture, the blanking is not solid, and the product shrinks and sinks during baking to expose the product to oxidation.
  4. The temperature is too high when it is out of the oven, and the product is not scattered in time at the cleaning site.

[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”What are the reasons for the cracked waste produced in the roasting process?”]Generally speaking, due to the above process, the products often produce transverse cracks and internal cracks. However, due to the reasons of this process, the products are often caused to produce longitudinal rows. The causes of various cracks are as follows:

  1. The material temperature is too low during molding, the pre-pressure is insufficient, and the molding pressure is insufficient.
  2. The paste will be broken during the return stroke. Although the surface is smooth after pressing, the internal structure is not good.
  3. The degree of calcination of the raw materials is not enough, or the ingredients are mixed into the raw meal block, and the secondary shrinkage occurs during roasting.
  4. The plunger head of the press is coated with too much oil, and the joints of the two pot materials cannot be adhered, and cracks occur after baking.
  5. The product has too little binder content and too much powder content.
  6. The paste is not uniformly kneaded or there is water in the paste.
  7. The heating rate is too fast.
  8. The product is too close to the furnace wall when it is installed.
  9. Part of the furnace wall leaks material and heats up too fast.
  10. The upper layer is equipped with large specifications (above ¢400mm) and less ash products.

[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”What waste products will be produced during the roasting process?”]Longitudinal cracks, permanent cracks, internal cracks, delamination, impurities, shorts, deformation, bending, oxidation, damage, high resistivity and other waste products will be produced.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”What are the reasons for the explosion of the roaster?”]

  1. Stop the smoke exhaust machine, and the gas will accumulate into explosive gas.
  2. Extinguish at low temperature, the temperature is too low, the flame is not extinguished, and the gas accumulates to form explosive gas.
  3. The operation of low-temperature ignition is incorrect. In the case of sufficient air, ignition should be performed first, and then gas should be sent, otherwise there is a danger of explosion.

[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”How does the ingredient department make ingredients stable?”]In order to ensure the stability of the particle size of the product ingredients, on the one hand, it is necessary to frequently sample from each storage hopper for screening analysis to check whether the particle size of the ingredients fluctuates. If the fluctuation is too large, timely measures must be taken.

On the other hand, it is necessary to collect various granular materials from the storage hopper regularly (after every few pots of materials are prepared according to the regulations). Perform screening analysis according to the percentage composition of the formula to check whether it meets the technical requirements. If it does not meet the requirements, immediately stop the batching, re-adjust the formula, or discharge the unqualified materials until it meets the requirements, and then continue the batching. The batching equipment should be checked regularly to maintain the accuracy of the batching to avoid batching errors. Weighing must be carried out in strict accordance with the ingredients list, and must be fast and accurate, and cannot exceed the specified error.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”What are the reasons for the early failure of the retort furnace? How to extend the furnace age?”]The furnace body of the retort furnace can generally be used for about 8 years. The main phenomenon of the early damage of the tank body is the formation of pores on the brick surface of the tank body, which gradually expand into karst caves, and even burn through the wall of the tank. Wear the same, in addition, there are often phenomena such as falling off of burner bricks in the fire channel and blockage of the fire channel by molten slag.

There are four reasons for the early failure of the retort furnace:

  1. Masonry quality. Poor masonry quality is manifested by large brick joints, uneven width of brick joints and insufficient mortar. The special-shaped silica bricks are not pre-built or pre-built carelessly after the tank is built. Deviation of the size from the design requirements, uneven expansion joints, mud falling into the fire channel and not cleaned, the furnace body being wet, raining and freezing during masonry, etc., will affect the life of the furnace body.
  2. The heating rate of the furnace is inappropriate, the furnace heating is too fast, the furnace body expansion is not well managed during the furnace process, and the various parts of the furnace body cause unbalanced stress, and the furnace body deforms or cracks after the furnace.
  3. The quality of silica bricks, the loose structure of silica bricks, large porosity, low mechanical strength, substandard refractoriness, and brick deformation and size substandard quality defects will cause early damage to the tank.
  4. Production operation: non-compliant operation during calcination will cause local temperature to be too high (especially when calcination of high volatile petroleum coke), local sintering of silica brick masonry, abnormal feeding and discharging, and fluctuation of material surface , The improper handling of the coking in the tank after blocking the furnace, or even the phenomenon of “fire”, will damage the tank body. Therefore, extending the life of the retort furnace requires strict control in terms of furnace design, material preparation, infrastructure construction, ovens and production operations. During the calcination process, the charging and discharging and the temperature of the furnace must be adjusted according to regulations to avoid local overheating. The phenomenon. It is necessary to take measures in time if the tank body is partially damaged, so as to extend the life of the furnace body.

[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”How to judge the oil content of the paste?”]The paste is off-white, with many small pieces and less large pieces. The divergent paste indicates that the amount of binder is small, the paste is dark and bright, there are many large pieces, and the small pieces are small, indicating that the amount of binder is large, and the size of the paste is half the size. . The bulk is 50~70mm, indicating that the amount of binder is moderate.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”What are the effects of the cooling rate of the roaster on the product quality?”]At the beginning of the cooling stage, the temperature of the product actually continues to rise. If the cooling rate is too fast, it will cause cracks, increase in waste, and slow cooling. It will also cause the internal and external shrinkage of the product to be inconsistent and cause the product to crack. The furnace body also has an adverse effect, so the cooling rate should be controlled within 40~50ºC per hour, down to 800ºC, and let it cool naturally. There are also actions based on daily output requirements and furnace cycle.[/vc_toggle][/vc_tta_section][/vc_tta_pageable][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row btn_title=”Improve the ladle lining life” btn_link=”” btn_align=”ubtn-center” btn_size=”ubtn-large” btn_width=”” btn_height=”” btn_padding_left=”” btn_padding_top=”” btn_title_color=”#ffffff” btn_bg_color=”#6b96bf” ult_btn_custom_onclick=”” btn_hover=”ubtn-no-hover-bg” btn_anim_effect=”none” btn_bg_color_hover=”” btn_title_color_hover=”” button_bg_img=”” btn_icon_pos=”ubtn-sep-icon-at-left” btn_border_style=”” btn_color_border=”” btn_color_border_hover=”” btn_border_size=”1″ btn_radius=”3″ btn_shadow=”” btn_shadow_color=”” btn_shadow_color_hover=”” btn_shadow_size=”5″ btn_shadow_click=”” enable_tooltip=”” tooltip_text=”” tooltip_pos=”left” btn_font_style=”font-weight:bold;” btn_font_size=”desktop:20px;” rel_attr=”” ult_btn_custom_onclick_code=”” css_adv_btn=”” btn_font_family=”” btn_line_height=””][vc_column][ult_buttons btn_title=”LMM GROUP One stop solution for steel industry – Steel Intelligent leader.” btn_align=”ubtn-center” btn_title_color=”#ffffff” btn_bg_color=”#6b96bf” icon_size=”32″ btn_icon_pos=”ubtn-sep-icon-at-left” btn_font_style=”font-weight:bold;” btn_font_size=”desktop:15px;”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]
