Quaker Houghton Houghto-Quench C 140

(Formerly HOUGHTO-QUENCH 140) HIGH PERFORMANCE COLD QUENCHING OIL - (ISO 6743-14) UHB

DESCRIPTION

HOUGHTO-QUENCH C 140 is a high performance accelerated quenching oil suitable at temperatures of up to 100°C.
It is based upon specially selected solvent refined base oils to minimise oxidation and ensure consistent performance under the most arduous of operating conditions. A carefully formulated additive package is incorporated into HOUGHTO-QUENCH C 140 to reduce the duration of the vapour blanket cooling stage and provide accelerated quenching characteristics, together with excellent oxidation resistance and thermal stability.
HOUGHTO-QUENCH C 140 has Rolls Royce approval CSS 153 Type A

APPLICATIONS

The accelerated speed provided by HOUGHTO-QUENCH C 140 enables the development of optimum strength and hardness with minimum distortion in lower harden ability and low alloy steels, heavy sectioned components or steels of borderline harden ability.
HOUGHTO-QUENCH C 140 is suitable for use in all types of quenching installations including open quench tanks, sealed quench furnaces and continuous furnaces of the shaker hearth, cast link and mesh belt type. It is recommended particularly for applications where staining of components during quenching should be minimised
