Description

The QTS124 quench tank is used for the uniform quenching of hot steels. The standard model, QTS124, may be used with either water or light weight polymer, with rust inhibitor in the solution.

An optional configuration, the QTO124, may be used with quenching oil. This includes the slide-on lid (which is an option for the other two configurations) and an explosion proof motor.

The QTW124 is used for plain water without rust inhibitors. It features stainless steel construction and a TEFC motor for the agitation. Neither configuration is designed for use with brine.

All configurations feature proper agitation which insures uniform quenching and disperses the bubbles of vaporized quench tank that form on the surface of the hot parts being quenched. These bubbles, if not dispersed, can cause uneven quenching times which would result in a poorly quenched part. The agitation also prevents localized overheating which, in the case of oil quench media, could cause a fire. An optional slide-on lid provides a means to extinguish any potential quench oil fires and to keep quench media clean. Casters are included to make the tank easily portable.

Additional Features

WARRANTY
The furnace is warranted for one year except for elements and thermocouples which are warranted for six months. See warranty sheet Q12W.
DRAIN PIPE
An 1” NPT fitting is welded near the bottom to drain the tank. The pipe is capped.
IMPELLER TYPE AGITATION
A 4” diameter impeller type agitator insures proper agitation of the quench media. The horsepower and impeller of the agitator are generously sized for vigorous agitation. The shaft and impeller are 316 Stainless Steel. Motor for standard QTS124 is TEFC; see options for explosion proof motor for use in oil quench tanks. The motor has a 10 foot cord to plug into a 120 volt single phase electrical outlet.
HEAVY DUTY DOUBLE WELDED CONSTRUCTION
The tank is made from 10 gauge steel. All seams are welded on both sides.
SEPARATE CHAMBER FOR IMPELLER
The agitation impeller is located in a separate area from the working space. This is separated by a perforated screen to prevent damage to the impeller and as a safety precaution. This section has a bolt on cover.
CASTERS FOR PORTABILITY
Four swivel casters are included. This allows you to move the tank out of the way when not using it.
EPOXY PAINT FURTHER SEALS THE TANKS
A base coat of zinc chromate primer is covered with heavy duty epoxy paint.

Additional Options

EXPLOSION PROOF MOTOR
Specified if the quench tank is going to be used with oil.
LOADING BASKETS
Alloy loading baskets made to order can be provided by L&L. Normally 1/4" or 1/2" mesh wire is used with a 3/8" or 1/2" diameter frame. Baskets can be made to stack. Size and weight requirements are necessary to quote.
SAFETY LID
For covering tank in case of fire and also to keep quench tank clean when not in use. The lid has handles on it and comes completely off when not in use.
STAINLESS STEEL CONSTRUCTION
The quench tank is available in 304 stainless steel for use with water without rust inhibitor.
