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 quenchant 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.
