Continuous development in Electric Arc Furnaces & Ladle Technology has led to the need of Graphite Electrodes of very stringent quality. Emergence of DRI, HBI, Sponge Iron as a potential source of raw material as against steel scrap revolutionized Electric Steel Making Industry, Higher Capacities of Electric Arc Furnace with bigger size, UHP Electrodes are common requirements of Electric Steel Industry. The emphasis is on better consumption norms & least electro-mechanical problems. Ameri-Source keeps abreast of technological developments in EAF’s at its customers end in order to carry on R&D efforts to meet their ever-changing and or their demanding requirements.
