Study on some of the mechanical, physical and electrical properties of graphite as the heating element in a high temperature vacuum furnace has been reported in this paper. Two types of graphite have been selected as the heating element of the furnace after searching the domestic market, and studies of their mechanical and physical properties have been carried out. Then, study of electrical properties of the more suitable type has been done under the high electric current and vacuum conditions. The results show that EK-40, graphite is a good option for use in high temperature vacuum furnace.
