Needle cokes are generally used as a key material for graphite electrodes in electric furnace. Coal-based needle coke is produced from coal tarn which appears during coke production. Needle coke is the principal raw material used in the steel and aluminium industries to make graphite electrodes from arc furnaces. It is a unique sort of coke with outstanding structural qualities, high electrical resistance, high-temperature resistance, thermal expansion coefficient (CTE) and oxidizability. In manufacturing graphite electrodes, needle coke accounts for more than 40% of the raw material expenses.
