Moderately Accelerated Quenching Oil 602.5 – Mid Quench 602.5

Mid Quench 602.5 is a moderately accelerated cold quenching oil of low viscosity suitable for use at temperatures up to 80ºC. It is based on specially selected solvent refined mineral oils to ensure consistent performance under arduous operating conditions. It is formulated to give exceptional thermal stability with maximum resistance to oxidation and sludging.

Mid Quench 602.5 is widely used for where an accelerated quench is required to improve hardness of the quenched steel. In particular it can provide constant quenching performance and cooling speeds high stability under severe conditions. A carefully selected additive package is incorporated into the product which reduces the vapour blanket stage, provides high maximum cooling rates and high quenching speed in the convection phase.

Mid Quench 602.5 is designed for general purpose applications and is suitable for use in open quench tanks, sealed quench furnaces and continuous furnaces of the shaker hearth, cast link and mesh belt type. A popular product with sub contract heat treatment contractors due to the wide range of steels and applications the product covers.
