High-Pressure Spray Quench

Maximum heat transfer available in a profile quench

GRANCO CLARK’s high impact velocity quench provides more than twice the cooling rate of a flood quench and three times the cooling rate of low-pressure spray. Unlike these other quenches, the high-pressure spray quench penetrates the steam barrier surrounding the profile and puts water droplets directly on the aluminum, dramatically increasing cooling speeds.

The high impact velocity quench also cools more evenly than flood quenches, for a gain in profile quality. Spray nozzles are arranged in adjustable rings, divided into sections, to allow precise cooling control appropriate to each profile. An in-line filtration system minimizes spray nozzle contamination.
