Electrode Regulation

Tenova Core offers two digital electrode regulation systems to suit your application.


The TDRH Digital Electrode regulation system uses state-of-the-art microprocessor technology and VME bus to achieve a real-time regulation loop. The TDRH system is typically used on furnaces that operate by hydraulic movement of the electrode arms.


The COREArc® system is a digital regulator that utilizes the latest automation technology and is typically installed on furnaces that operate by electro-mechanical drives (winch system) of the electrode arms.

Electrode regulation benefits include:

  • Reduced electrode consumption
  • Less frequent electrode breakage
  • Increase in average power during heats
  • Lower energy consumption

Electrode regulation results include:

  • Increase production output
  • Reduce furnace operating costs
  • Reduce maintenance expenditures
  • Decrease downtime
