Surface® Combustion offers quench systems with respect to equipment layout and processing requirements. Surface engineers to NFPA 86 (National Fire Protection Agency) safety standards, and we consider the non-equilibrium transitions that occur during the quenching step (e.g., temperature and furnace pressure) in our designs.
Equipment designs may incorporate quench systems that are external with load gantry or elevators, internal sealed quench with elevators, internal with a cascade seal (belt furnaces), internal ambient cooling (Top Cool), crane-loaded deep-pit, rail-mounted movable tanks, or die press quenching with furnace slot-doors.
Filtration, cooling, heating, make-up volume, and required pumps are incorporated in the quenching system depending on selected quench media. Quench media may be salt, brine, oil, polymer, water, or inert gas. Emergency nitrogen purge systems for atmosphere furnaces are available.
Process parameters may require high velocity, directional flow control, high pressure, or ambient cooling. Please contact us to discuss your specific requirements and Surface’s available quench system solutions.
There are furnaces, and then there are Surface® furnaces
