Recently, an article written by Baker Furnace’s own Sergio Luevano was published in Thermal Processing Magazine. Titled “An In-Depth Look at Polymer Quenchants,” Luevano’s article discusses the three main stages of polymer quenching, three popular quench mediums, and the importance of safety surrounding the use of polymer quenchants. The three stages of polymer quenching that Luevano covers are vapor phase, boiling phase, and convection phase. Luevano also goes into detail of the three popular quench mediums, which are water, oil, and polymer quenchant.
“As the industry continues to grow, the use of polymers will grow alongside it, not only for its flexibility for desired mechanical properties but, more importantly, for safety to the workers.” Luevano wrote.
