 Lubriserv has added a high performance POLYMER QUENCH FLUID to it's range of heat treatment products. SAFE QUENCH 569   is   an   opaque  fluid specifically  designed  for  induction  hardening  applications to  minimise  residual  sticky  deposits  on  equipment  and quenched    parts,    provide    resistance    to    microbial contamination and to extend system life.  

The main benefits of using Safe quench technology are:-

>  Minimises    sticky    deposits    on    induction  hardening equipment and quenched parts   
>  Provides resistance to microbial contamination
>  Extends system life
>  Prevents blockage of spray nozzles and filters
>  Protects systems from corrosion
>  Nitrite free corrosion inhibitor system
>  Improves wettability on component surface
>  Eliminates steam pockets
>  Avoids the formation of soft spots
>  Provides flexibility of quenching speed  

It is a water miscible fluid that can be used at various concentration percentages for induction hardening and flame hardening applications. SAFE QUENCH 569 is' particularly suited to the treatment of low alloy steels and where mineral oil based quench fluids cannot achieve the desired hardeness. SAFE QUENCH 569 prevents the dangers of deformation and cracking that is common with using a pure water. It also has an excellent antioxidant action.  SAFE QUENCH 569 is diluted with water in use and provides extremely uniform quenching characteristics. It eliminates steam pockets and high residual stress associated with water quenching and avoids the formation of soft spots and inconsistent mechanical properties. SAFE QUENCH 569 is used for a wide range of induction and flame hardening applications, including the quenching of crankshafts, camshafts, transmission components, starter ring gears and bearings. The quenching speed of SAFE QUENCH 569 solutions can be selected to suit the steel hardenability and component requirements by varying the concentration of the solution. 1% to 5% solutions SAFE QUENCH 569 improve the wettability on the component surface thereby imparting a more uniform quench and preventing soft spotting. These low concentrations are generally used for steels of low hardenability.  5% to 20% solutions of SAFE QUENCH 569 provide a range of cooling rates similar to those of soluble oil emulsions and quenching oils and are used for steels of higher hardenability.
