Intelligent Quenching Solutions for Higher Perfomance Parts

What is the IntensiQuench® Process?

IntensiQuench® is an environmentally friendly, multi-step quenching technique for the heat treatment of steel parts.The first step is very rapid and uniform cooling from the austenitizing temperature, usually in highly agitated water, until optimal compressive stresses are attained in the surface layer of the part. Once optimal compressive surface stresses are attained, the part is removed from the quench, and the final cooling step is done in air or inert gas. In contrast to conventional oil, polymer/water or gas quenching, IntensiQuench® methods provide higher as-quenched hardness, to a deeper level in the part, while maintaining high residual compressive surface stresses, and, at the same time yielding low distortion.

Let us demonstrate how "green" IntensiQuench® processes can make your steel parts SupR-STRONG™.  Contact Joseph A. Powell, President, or Dr. Michael A, Aronov, CEO, for a "free trial" on your steel parts.
