Houghton Aqua-Quench 140 - Advanced polymer quenchant for induction hardening applications - 54140

 

Aqua-Quench 140 is an amber, transparent fluid specifically designed for induction hardening applications to minimise residual sticky deposits on equipment and quenched parts, provide resistance to microbial contamination and to extend system life.

 

Application:

Aqua-Quench 140 is diluted with water in use and provides extremely uniform quenching characteristics. It eliminates steam pockets and high residual stress associated with water quenching and avoids the formation of soft spots and inconsistent mechanical properties. Aqua-Quench 140 can be used for a very wide range of induction and flame hardening applications, including the quenching of crankshafts, camshafts, transmission components, starter ring gears and bearings. The quenching speed of Aqua-Quench 140 solutions can be selected to suit the steel hardenability and component requirements by varying the concentration of the solution. 1% to 5% solutions of Aqua-Quench 140 improve the wettability on the component surface thereby imparting a more uniform quench and preventing soft spotting. These low concentrations are generally used for steels of low hardenability. 5% to 20% solutions of Aqua-Quench 140 provide a range of cooling rates similar to those of soluble oil emulsions and quenching oils and are used for steels of higher hardenability.

 

Advantages:

  • Minimises sticky deposits on induction hardening equipment and quenched parts
  • Provides resistance to microbial contamination
  • Extends system life
  • Prevents blockage of spray nozzles and filters
  • Protects systems from corrosion
  • Nitrite free corrosion inhibitor system
  • Improves wettability on component surface
  • Eliminates steam pockets
  • Avoids the formation of soft spots
  • Provides flexibility of quenching speed
