Quenching oil cooling

Quenching oils are used in heat treatment processing of various iron alloys, mostly steel.

A critical part of the heat treatment process is quenching the parts in order to obtain specific properties.

A quenching cooling system consists of an exchanger installed between the quenching tank and the tank with oil. Two pumps installed upstream of the cooler force oil circulation in the system. A heat exchanger maintains the oil in the quenching tank at a constant temperature.

A threat to the correct operation of quenching cooling systems are potential leakages in the cooler, therefore it is recommended to use plate exchangers with double heating plates. This solution makes mixing the water with oil more difficult, as it might have undesired effects.
