Quench Water

What happens to the quench water as it is used?

As polymer quench water is used, its inherent properties of heat transfer and finish quality begin to degrade. This degradation in overall quench quality occurs because the quench water is gradually being contaminated with particulate.

Particulate contamination will alter polymer quench water cooling rates by unbalancing the chemistry of the fluid. This will diminish finish quality on quenched parts, increasing rejected parts, downtime, and maintenance costs.

Solution: COMO Filtration Systems

Particulate contamination does not mean that the quench water must be disposed of and replaced. COMO Multi-Pass Depth Filtration can remove the particulate from the polymer quench water, which will stabilize the chemistry of the fluid and extend its life.

COMO Multi-Pass Depth Filtration removes both fine and gross contamination, which reduces part-cracking and distortion associated with dirty quench water; consequently, you can improve the heat transfer efficiency and finish quality of your fluid.
