Product Description

Alphaquench 5300 is designed for quenching operations which require a high speed quenching oil, in order to develop maximum hardness and minimal distortion. The Alphaquench 5300 is formulated with a paraffinic base stock fortified with accelerating additives designed to meet the toughest industrial requirements. It provides a very short vapor stage with greatly increased cooling rate during the critical cooling stage to provide maximum transformation to the martensitic form. This oil was engineered for a reduced cooling rate through the martensite formation range while still providing high and deep hardness but without distortion and breakage. The Alphaquench 5300 is used in all applications where the highest cooling rates must be applied in order to achieve maximum hardness of the quenched parts. This oil can be particularly effective when parts are tightly packed in baskets and optimal circulation is not possible. Batch and continuous furnace operations gas fired, carburizing, carbonitriding, or neutral atmosphere with internal or external quench tanks. Alphaquench 5300 is very useful for batch internal quench, continuous, or other open tank quenching of gears, shafts, forgings, or other ferrous parts requiring fast cooling rates with controlled distortion. It allows for high hardness and depth with controlled residual stress after quench.

Featured Benefits
  • Fast oil for maximum hardness and minimum distortion
  • Low drag out on parts and minimal evaporation loss
  • Contains accelerator to break down vapor phase quickly
  • High flash point and low smoke formation reduce health and safety concerns
