General Purpose Accelerated Cold Quenching Oil




Houghto-Quench G 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 G to reduce the duration of the vapor blanket cooling stage and provide moderately accelerated quenching characteristics, together with excellent oxidation resistance and thermal stability.




The accelerated quenching characteristics provided by Houghto-Quench G enables the development of improved strength and hardness with minimum distortion in lower hardenability and low alloy steels, heavy sectioned components or steels of borderline hardenability.


Houghto-Quench G is suitable for use in all types of quenching installations including open quench tanks, sealed quench furnaces and continuous furnaces of the shaker hearth, cast link and mesh belt type. It is recommended particularly for applications where staining of components during quenching should be minimized.
