E.A.F. Melting scrap steel in New Zealand. The arc is about 3000°Celcius and scrap steel is melted in three charges to get around 40 tonnes of steel to be further processed in the ladle furnace.
The rods are from carbon and the arc current varies between 42,000 and 50,000 Ampères at around 300 Volts ac.

Sound is loud, wise to turn your volume down.
