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.
