Heat treatment of armor plate, abrasion resistant plate, and saw blade
material has always been difficult due to the severe distortions produced in the quenching
Now, has designed and successfully put into
operation, a heat treating process that can provide light gauge plate with the flatness
This innovative unit can process
material without post temper leveling. Internal stresses and strains are
eliminated and the material
stays flat throughout the fabricating process.
quench units can be used on plates from
approximately 0.25" to 6" (6mm to 150mm) in thickness.
level-quench accepts the plate from the
austenizing furnaces. The leveler then removes any scale and flattens the plate, insuring
a completely uniform quench. Subsequent controlled quenching also contributes to flatness
by controlling contraction during cooling.
