Proven Heat Treating Processes!

IntensiQuench® Process Proven Benefits:

  • Increases the depth of hardness.
  • Eliminates surface cracking.
  • Minimizes part distortion.
  • Achieves the same or better metallurgical properties while using lower alloy, less costly steel.
  • Provides an optimum combination of high surface compressive stress; high-strength, wear-resistant quenched layer; and relatively soft but properly strengthened core resulting in longer part life.
  • Uses less costly, environmentally friendly quenchant (usually plain water), instead of expensive, hazardous oil.
  • Shortens the duration, or fully eliminates, the carburizing cycle.
  • Achieves the greater productivity of the quenching equipment due to much faster cooling rate.
