    Abstract

    In this chapter, different applications of intensive quenching (IQ) techniques on actual steel products, as well as on steel samples from the part manufacturers, are discussed. Two intensive water quenching methods were applied: the IQ-3 technique, also known as “direct convection cooling,” and the IQ-2 technique, a three-step quenching process that initially cools parts under the nucleate boiling mode and then the convection heat transfer mode. Experiments were conducted for a variety of steel products, including automotive parts (coil springs, kingpins, torsion bars, bearing products, ball studs, etc.), fasteners of different types, and tool products (punches, dies, die components, etc.).
