AQUA-QUENCH 220 is polymer quenchant with more "oil-like" quenching characteristics. AQUA-QUENCH 220 is a polyalkylene glycol (PAG) based quenchant. Its slower cooling rate during the critical martensitic transformation temperature range minimizes risk of cracking and distortion and so enables the treatment of higher hardenability steels not previously suitable for quenching in conventional PAG type quenchants. Its formula permits to avoid very high concentration in comparison with previous traditional PAG.

AQUA-QUENCH 220 eliminates the smoke, fume and fire hazards associated with oil quenching and provides flexibility of quenching speed. Its nitrite free corrosion inhibitor system provides excellent protection to quench tank, fixtures and fittings, cooling systems and associated pipework.

AQUA-QUENCH 220 can be used for Induction hardening for specific parts.

 

Applications:

AQUA-QUENCH 220 is diluted with water in use and provides extremely uniform quenching characteristics. The quenching speed of Aqua-Quench 220 can be varied to suit the steel specific steel hardenability and component requirements by varying the concentration and temperature of the solution and the degree of agitation in the quench tank.

 

Advantages:

  • Economic - Develops optimum properties in components.
  • Economic - Flexibility of quenching speed.
  • Economic - Reduced cooling rate during the critical martensitic transformation temperature range compared 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.
