Harden and Quench With SST

With impeccable high quality training, our specialists heat the desired material and harden it by quenching with oil. This increases durability and strength because tension and stress is relieved from the steel. We employ multiple methods in this area.

  • Roll, press, fixture, and plug quenching: These processes are specialized to minimize distortion that may occur during a standard oil quench.
  • Oil quenching: This is the standard procedure for a carbon steel material during which the steel is hardened with an oil bath.
  • Marquenching: Molten salt is used in this method for a final hardening which changes the microstructure into martensite while avoiding the production of bainite.
  • Precipitation harden: In this method, a solid saturation constituent precipitates to harden the desired metal.
  • Neutral hardening: The goal of this process is not only to harden the steel from core to surface but also to maintain the same amount of carbon from beginning to end. While quenching is used, tempering and austentising are included as well.
  • Bright hardening: As indicated in its name, this treatment results in bright and shiny metal parts. This is specifically for objects that do not require maximum hardness.

Our plethora of heat treating services are more than enough to serve the needs of your company and your steel.

Before I retired, I was the coordinator for our plant's aerospace, and precision heat treated product, and SST. I couldn't have asked for better quality, and service. I recommend them 100 percent.
