Water Quench Hardening

Several types of low alloy investment castings require water quench hardening in order to achieve the proper hardness or mechanical properties.  These alloys usually are plain carbon steels such as 1018, 1020, 1030, 1035, 1040, & 1045 materials. ThermTech offers both a small batch water quench system and a larger batch system for hardening investment castings in excess of 30 lbs.
