AQUA-QUENCH 320 is a polymer quenchant with more "oil-like" quenching characteristics.

AQUA-QUENCH 320 is a poly-vinyl-pyrolidone (PVP) 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 unsuitable for quenching in PAG type quenchants.

AQUA-QUENCH 320 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.

 

Applications:

The quenching speed of AQUA-QUENCH 320 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 320 is used generally at concentrations of between 10-35%. AQUA-QUENCH 320 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. The concentration of AQUA-QUENCH 320 influences the viscosity of the solution and hence the quenching speed. Used at between 10-35% it exhibits very oil-like quenching characteristics. The effectiveness of the circulation and agitation of the fluid for quenching is important to ensure characteristics and heat distribution uniform especially for this type of polymer.
