Description

Purpose

Polymer quenching is capable of producing repeatable results with less corrosion than water and with less fire risk than oil.
This capability allows the AFRC to test various polymer quench parameters in order to understand quenchant performance and optimise parameters accordingly for industrial partners.

Specifications

- Quench tank to replicate production quenching environments - Heating elements and agitation installed within the tank along with thermocouples for monitoring internal temperature - 1000 litre capacity - Impellor driven with 1.1kW motor - Agitation controlled from 60rpm to 350rpm
