Quenching Steel is the process of strengthening and hardening steel by rapidly cooling metal parts from the austenitizing or solution treating temperature.
Quenching – Successful hardening is achieving the required microstructure, hardness, strength, or toughness while minimizing residual stress, distortion, and the potential of cracking. The selection of a quenchant depends on the hardenability of the particular alloy, thickness of part, and the shape. Effective quenching is dependent on steel composition, type of quench process, and quench-ant use conditions. The design of the quenching system and the thoroughness in which the system is maintained can also contribute to successful quenching.
