This test method provides a cooling time versus temperature pathway which is directly proportional to physical properties such as the hardness obtainable upon quenching of a metal. The results obtained by this test may be used as a guide in heat treating oil selection or comparison of quench severities of different heat treating oils, new or used.View Less
1.1 This test method describes the equipment and the procedure for evaluation of a quenching oil's quenching characteristics by cooling rate determination.
1.2 This test is designed to evaluate quenching oils in a non-agitated system. There is no correlation between these test results and the results obtained in agitated systems.
1.3 The values in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values in parentheses are provided for information only.
1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
