  1. acheson process

    The Acheson process is a method used to manufacture silicon carbide (SiC) and graphite. Named after its inventor, Edward Goodrich Acheson, this industrial process involves heating a mixture of powdered coke and clay, or sometimes sand, in an iron bowl. The heat causes a reaction between the coke and clay which creates a core of carbon and a silicon compound. This process was first patented by Acheson in 1896 and has been widely used within industries such as electronics, carborundum production, and ceramics.
