High Pressure Gas Quenching Typical Oil Hardening Grades of Steel

Authors: Robert Hill Jr. and Phillip DeHennis, Solar Atmospheres

High pressure gas quenching has been identified as one of the most important advancements in recent developments of heat treating technology.  Over the decades, an extensive amount of research and documentation has been published on the hardenability of water and oil hardening grades of steels.  To date, there is relatively little or no information on the hardenability of oil hardening grades of steel quenched in a high pressure, gas environment.
