Medium-Fast, High Quality Quench Oil


Houghto-Quench 3430 is a medium speed quenching oil suitable for use at temperatures up to 180ºF (82ºC). It is based upon specialty solvent refined base oil to minimize oxidation and ensure consistent performance under the most arduous of operating conditions. A carefully formulated additive package is incorporated into Houghto-Quench 3430 to reduce the duration of the vapor blanket cooling stage and provide moderately accelerated quenching characteristics, together with excellent oxidation resistance and thermal stability.


·         Fast cooling rate in initial stage of quenching: Maximum metallurgical and physical properties

·         Minimal drag-out of quenching oil: Less smoke and makeup required

·         Excellent oxidation resistance and thermal stability: elimination of waste due to quench oil degradation
