Houghton Aqua-Quench 300 - Water-soluble polymer quenchant - 54300

 

Aqua-Quench 300 is an advanced polymer quenchant designed for both low and high hardenability steel applications. Its quenching characteristics can be varied between those of water and normal speed cold quenching oil by varying the concentration of the solution. 

The low cooling rates exhibited by Aqua-Quench 300 in the convection stage of the quenching process enables the treatment of a wide range of steel components which maybe unsuitable for quenching in conventional polyalkylene glycol based polymer quenchants. 

Aqua-Quench 300 eliminates the smoke fume and fire hazards associated with oil quenching. It contains a nitrite free corrosion inhibitor system which provides excellent protection to quench tank, fixtures and fittings, pipework and cooling systems.

 

Application:

The quenching speed of Aqua-Quench 300 can be selected to suit the steel hardenability and component requirements by varying the concentration and temperature of the solution and the degree of agitation in the quench tank.

Aqua-Quench 300 is used generally at concentrations of between 10-35%.

Aqua-Quench 300 can be used in many different types of furnace including continuous mesh belt, shaker hearth, rotary scroll, as well as for direct quenching into open quench tanks.

To assist in initial mixing and filling Aqua-Quench 300 can be supplied in bulk pre-diluted to 50% concentration enabling a delivery by RTW directly into the quench tank.
