Gas Quenching With Air Products’ Rapid Gas Quenching Gas Mixture

Safety and environmental considerations make gas quenching an attractive alternative to liquid quenching. The advantages of gas quenching include cleaner product, minimum distortion, and elimination of environmental problems associated with gas quenching. However, gas quenching has not been widely used because of limited cooling rate. Air Products’ RGQ gas mixture increases the gas cooling rate over 100% helium at a given gas pressure and velocity.
