The videos below demonstrate some of our proprietary heat treating and quenching technologies.
Traditional 20th Century Heat Treating
Watch a 1" diameter heated rod (1600F) get quenched in a beaker of still water. The non-uniformity in quench cooling is obvious. The footage was slowed to show the transitions in the 3 different phases of quench cooling as they take place at the part surface.
21st Century Heat Treating - Intensive Quenching
This clip shows the 21st Century "uniform and intensive" water quench of a hot part (~1600℉) in a part-by-part intensive water quenching system (IQ-™).
Intensive Water Quenching
This demonstration shows springs being intensively quenched at Akron Steel Treating in a batch Intensive Quench Tank
