Calcium Carbide is a chemical compound with the chemical formula of CaC2. Its main use industrially is in the production of Acetylene and Calcium Cyanamide. Calcium Carbide is manufactured by the reaction of lime and carbon in an electric arc furnace at a temperature of 2300°C. Söderberg paste electrodes are used to supply the electric current that provides the energy needed for the chemical reaction.

What is a Deoxidizing Blends?

Deoxidizing blends are used in the secondary metallurgy of the steelmaking process to reduce FeO and MnO. These oxides are introduced in the steel after furnace or converter tapping and are present in the slag. More...

What is Acetylene Carbon Black?

Acetylene Carbon Black (ACB) is produced when acetylene gas comes into contact with heated refractory material (900°C) under controlled circumstances. The reaction results in the cracking of the gas forming Carbon and Hydrogen, exothermically.
