Increased Strength, Hardness and Toughness
Quenching and tempering (Q & T) are two processes that are used in combination, that strengthen materials like steel and other ferrous alloys. Quenching is a process where the alloys are heated at elevated temperature and rapidly cooled in salt water, fresh water, oil, forced air. And in tempering the quenched material is reheated to improve mechanical properties.
The toughness-factor means greater resistance to wear and abrasion. That is why quenched and tempered steel is particularly useful in machinery and structures where greater abrasion resistance and higher yield strength are necessary, such as mining, quarrying, earth moving and construction.
Our experienced team of metallurgists carry out such heat treatment using accurately temperature-controlled muffle furnace, for responsive materials like carbon steel, alloy steel.
ADVANTAGES OF QUENCHING AND TEMPERING
- Increased Toughness
- Increased Hardness and Strength
- Reduced Brittleness
APPLICATION OF QUENCHED AND TEMPERED MATERIALS
- Storage tanks
- Bridges and high-rise buildings
- Excavator and loader buckets
- Deflector plates
- Gear wheel
- Cutting edges
- Earthmoving buckets
- Dump truck wear liners
