1. iQuench®




With the iQuench® tailored quenching technology, Tenova LOI Thermprocess offers a wide variety of quenching modes and the full range of heat transfer combined with a unique and powerful mathematical quenching model and overall automation. The combination of precisely designed high quality equipment with an intelligent and powerful model makes the iQuench® a masterpiece of engineering.

The quenching facility is the key component of a heavy plate quenching and tempering line. Tenova LOI Thermprocess offers tailored quenching technology with a huge amount of quenching modes like

  • Accelerated cooling
  • Direct quenching
  • Quenching
  • Soft cooling

and the full range of heat transfer to precisely quench heavy plates of

  • Wear resistant steel
  • High strength steel
  • Special alloys
  • Stainless steel.

The iQuench® combines this quenching facility with a unique, powerful and intelligent mathematical quenching model (MQM). The 3rd Generation MQM has the ability to calculate and optimize the

  • Metallurgical processes within the heavy plate
  • Resulting mechanical properties of the heavy plate
  • Recipes for the quenching facility to fullfill the metallurgical and mechanical requirements of the heavy plate.

Hence, the MQM is the powerful tool to attain full control of the quenching process. No more trial and error is needed. This makes the iQuench® a perfect companion for your production, technology and sales department.

Tenova LOI Thermprocess is the leading company in this field of quenching technology since the middle of the 1990s with more than 25 successful installations all over the world. Experience in combination with improvement guaranties the best quality.
