Quenching Oil Testing
Quenching oils are mainly used in the Steel Industry to facilitate hardening of metal by controlling heat transfer during quenching. It also enhances wetting of the metal during quenching to minimize the formation of undesirable thermal and transformational gradients which may lead to increased distortion and cracking.
Quenching oil is required to be monitored regularly to monitor degradation. Oil degradation of Quenching fluids is often accompanied by sedimentation and sludge formation. This sludge / varnish restrict the proper hardening of metal component & lead to defects on the metal surface.
Quenching Oil Testing Parameters
- Flash Point
- Acid Number
- Water Content
- Precipitation Number
- Cooling Curve Testing
Chem-Tech Laboratories carries out Quenching Oil Testing as per internationally accepted ASTM, ISO & IS Test Standards.
