Castrol Iloquench 1 - General Purpose Cold Quenching Oil - 7701

Castrol Iloquench 1 - General Purpose Cold Quenching Oil - 7701

 

Castrol Iloquench™ 1 is a general purpose, low viscosity quenching oil. It is based on a selected solvent refined mineral oil highly resistant to oxidation and therefore offers long service life with minimum deterioration of properties during service.

 

Application

Iloquench 1 is a universal quenching oil for use in cold quenching applications of medium to high carbon as well as low alloy steels to impart the desired hardness to the components without metallurgical distortion or stress. Iloquench 1 is suitable for use in continuous furnaces, sealed quench furnaces and open quench tanks. It may also be employed for quenching parts heated in cyanide salt baths. Due to the low sulphur content Iloquench 1 is not affected adversely by the carry-over of cyanide salts. Iloquench 1 is particularly suitable for the quenching of small components because its low viscosity enables the surfaces of small, intricate profiles to be wetted effectively, enabling the most efficient heat transfer. Its low viscosity also reduces drag out losses to a minimum. Typically treated parts are nuts, bolts, ball bearings, hand tools and springs.

 

Advantages

  • Inherently resistant to oxidation and thermal degradation leading to a longer service life.
  • Consistent quenching performance and metallurgical standards of output.
  • Provides clean surfaces, free of stains, patches, spots and marbling aspects.
  • Low viscosity ensures minimum drag out losses helps to ensure the most effective heat transfer.
  • Versatile - compatible with all methods of component heating, including salt bath heating.
  • Easy to clean-off by using alkaline process cleaner, also available from Castrol.

Castrol Iloquench 100 - Hot quenching oil - 7711

Castrol Iloquench 100 - Hot quenching oil - 7711

 

Castrol Iloquench™ 100 is a medium viscosity oil that is particularly suitable for quenching intricate components to the required hardness. At the recommended oil bath temperature, its viscosity is low enough to prevent the retention of oil by capillary action and to reduce drag out losses. Iloquench 100 is an additive treated oil that combines high temperature thermal and oxidative stability with low volatility, thus ensuring that fuming and evaporation are kept to a minimum.

 

Application

Iloquench 100 is recommended for use in hot quenching applications where distortion and stress caused by cold quenching is a problem. The product would be used for example in the automotive industry where close dimensional control of the components is essential. Iloquench 100 can be used between 120°C and 180°C. Although the product has excellent resistance to oxidative degradation, it is recommended that at these temperatures, the oil bath is protected from the air by a reducing atmosphere or inert gas.

 

Advantages

  • Highly resistant to oxidation and thermal degradation, thereby leading to a longer life in service.
  • High flash point and fire points for safe operation.
  • Minimum deposit formation.
  • Controlled quench acceleration.
  • Improved hardness with minimum cracking and distortion.
  • Promotes deep hardening of parts.
  • Low viscosity at high bulk oil temperatures assures low drag out losses.
  • Low volatility ensures fuming and evaporation are kept to a minimum.
