Houghton Aqua-Quench 140 FB - Polymer Quenchant for induction hardening applications - gf/12379

 

AQUA-QUENCH 140 FB 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.

 

Applications:

Aqua-Quench 140 FB is diluted with water in use and provides extremely uniform quenching characteristics. Compared to simple water quenching, it eliminates steam pockets and high residual stress, and avoids the formation of soft spots and inconsistent mechanical properties. AQUA-QUENCH 140 FB 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 FB 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 FB improve the wettability on the component surface thereby imparting arnore 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 FB provide a range of cooling rates similar to those of soluble oil emulsions and quenching oils and are used for steels of higher hardenability. The quenching speed of AQUA-QUENCH 140 FB depends upon the concentration and temperature of the solution.

 

Advantages:

  • Economic - Develops optimum properties in components.
  • Economic - Flexibility of quenching speed.
  • Economic - Reduced cooling rate during the critical martensitic transformation temperature range to conventional PAG's.
  • Economic - Eliminates the need for costly alkali cleaning or vapour degreasing prior to tempering.
  • Economic - Quenching speed not significantly influenced by contamination with water.
  • Operator friendly - Diethanolamine free.
  • Operator friendly - Boron free.
  • Operator friendly - Eliminates smoke and fume during quenching.
  • Environmentally friendly - Nitrite free corrosion inhibitor system.
  • Safety - Eliminates fire hazard.
  • Safety - Eliminates oily floors around quench tanks.
