D. Scott MacKenzie, Ph.D., FASM was recently published in a Thermal Processing article posted in July 2019, titled “Selection of Oil Quenchants for Heat-Treating Processes”. The article discusses the various methods, as well as the pros and cons, of selecting a quench oil for various applications.

“The selection of the proper quench oil is critical for proper heat-treating operations. The quenchant selected must provide consistent quenching the first time, as well as over the life of the quenchant.“ The full article is available on Thermal Processing's website.
