Do You Know Why Quenching Is Applied?
Normally this process utilized in order to harden metals like steels, water quenching from a temperature above the austenitic (Austenite equals iron alloys with a base of gamma-iron) temperature will lead to carbon being trapped in the austenitic space such as lath. This leads to a brittle martensitic phase. Also bear in mind that martensite type is a hard kind of crystalline structure of the steel.
Quenched steel martensite is very brittle and under stress. Therefore, quenched type of steel normally is affected by an operation known as tempering. This comprises heating for second time and thereafter, the metal to a temperature below a specific point, then letting the material to cool freely in the air.
In addition, steel will be eventually tempered in salt, oil, lead baths, or furnaces but to restore some levels of the toughness lost by conversion to martensite, air is circulated by fans . After tempering the metal, it is cooled in a short time period, slowly, or not at all, which it depends on the conditions, specially whether the metal in question is vulnerable to post-temper brittleness.Quenching protects steel from breaking down from austenite phase to cementite and ferrite . The aim will be reaching the martensitic phase for the steel.
The QUENCH-X45 product is packaged in standard 208-liter steel barrels.
