Wisconsin Oven Corporation announced the shipment of an electrically heated horizontal quench system to a supplier of the Aerospace industry. The system will be used to solution heat treat and rapidly quench a variety of aluminum parts.
The horizontal quench furnace has a maximum temperature rating of 1,250°F, a work chamber of 6’W x 2’H x 4’L. It is electrically heated with 144kW of heat input and SCR power control. The recirculation system utilizes a 15,000 CFM blower with combination air flow design to maximize temperature uniformity. This horizontal quench system features guaranteed temperature uniformity (+/-5°F at 870° F and 1,000° F) and meets the requirements of AMS 2750E Class 1.
The quench tank is a 12 gauge 304 stainless steel construction, and utilizes a pneumatically actuated quench elevator to lower and raise the load into the tank. The system provides a seven (7) second maximum quench time. The quench tank has a 1,600 gallon capacity and agitation pump rated for 250 gallons per minute. The tank is designed for a 20°F maximum water temperature rise (when load is quenched).
“A Horizontal Quench System is a cost effective option for our customers that perform solution heat treating processes. It offers many of the typical drop bottom capabilities and features with a smaller footprint, saving on the customer’s valuable floor space.” Jim Lucas, Senior Sales Engineer
Unique features of this horizontal quench furnace include:
- Seven (7) second maximum quench time
- Non-heated stainless steel rinse tank with agitation
- Powered load/unload table
- Meets AMS 2750E Class 1 specifications
- Pusher/extractor (load pusher) system for automatic loading and quenching
- Oven relay and sequence control performed by an Allen Bradley PLC
- Operator interface control (for oven/quench/pusher) with 10” color touch screen HMI
This horizontal quench system was fully factory tested and adjusted prior to shipment to help reduce installation and start-up times. An extensive Quality Assurance check list was completed to ensure the equipment met all Wisconsin Oven quality standards. The solution heat treat system is backed by Wisconsin Oven’s Exclusive and Unprecedented 3-Year WOW™ warranty. This warranty covers all materials for all components (less wear items).
