Product Description

Aqua-Quench 245 is an advanced bio-stable polymer quenchant designed for induction hardening and immersion quenching applications, and represents another breakthrough in technology from Houghton International.

Aqua-Quench 245 is a polymer quenchant formulated with a combination of ingredients that provide greater stability to microbial intrusion of the quenchant. Many of today's induction hardening applications require the use of polymer quenchants on a wide variety of parts. Unfortunately due to production requirements, parts may not be washed prior to heat treatment and pre-heat treatment process fluids such as machining coolants, rust preventives, and cleaners can contaminate the quench tank. These products can cause degradation of the quenchant.

Aqua-Quench 245 is specifically designed for use in induction and immersion hardening applications to minimize residual sticky deposits on equipment and quenched parts, and extend system life. The quenching speed of Aqua-Quench 245 solutions can be selected to suit the steel hardenability and components requirements by varying the concentration of the solution.

Features & Benefits

  • Bio-stable technology to extend system life, minimize recharging and increased production
  • Designed for induction hardening applications: Minimizes residual sticky deposits on equipment and quenched parts provide cleaner operations and prevents blockage of spray nozzles and filters
  • Uniform quenching eliminates steam pockets and formation of soft spot associated with water quenching
  • Water based quenchant to eliminate fire hazard and smoke associated with quenching oils along with cleaner parts and safer working environment
