Production methods used to prepare graphite crucibles with high operating properties are considered: use as a filler of good graphitizing acicular coke, vibration molding of the original coke mix, use of production cycles for impregnation with medium temperature coal-tar pitch — firing, firing of compacted billets in metal containers, graphitization of fired billets in graphite cylinders. The last two production methods make it possible to reduce the temperature drop throughout the volume of a billet during heat treatment, and as a consequence to reduce crack development to a minimum as a result of reducing thermal stresses. All of the production methods recommended may be entirely accomplished in existing electrode plants and may be used to increase markedly the quality crucible graphite. It is possible to achieve a quality for these materials at the best world level.
