50 Quench Oil


50 QUENCH OIL produces high hardness in many types of steel ordinarily considered “water quenching”.  In the initial stages of the quench, 50 QUENCH OIL cools like water.  As the cooling nears the martensite formation range, this remarkable oil cools the steel slowly and uniformly to preclude cracking or distortion. 

50 QUENCH OIL is as effective at 50°F as it is at 120°F because of its low viscosity.  This is a big advantage to many steel treaters who have oil quenching tanks without heaters.  It also means lower consumption because oil drag out is greatly reduced.

*Our products are Park!  Park was brought by Heatbath in 1992 and Heatbath was bought by DuBois in 2015. Our current 50 Quench Oil is the same formula that Park made when they were independent*

The recommended operating temperature range is ambient to 120°F. Most quenching oils flash at about 350°F.  The flash point of 50 QUENCH OIL is 275°F.  

Without proper agitation and cooling a risk of fire exists.  Operate only using “Bath Parameters”!
