Oil Tempering Lines
Arcon supplies Oil Tempering Lines that typically incorporate an Austenitising Furnace, Quenching System (oil or water based), Wiping System, Tempering Furnace, followed by Cooling and Coating equipment. Arcon can supply Austenitising Furnaces that are either Direct Fired, Fluidbed or Muffle Tube for atmosphere control. Following this heating section, the wires are rapidly quenched in a cooling medium. This equipment can use either mineral-based oil or water-based polymer quenchants which are temperature controlled and re-circulated through a cooling heat-exchanger and filters. After wiping, the wires enter the Fluidbed Tempering Furnace, although a Lead Furnace can also be used.
