Aluminum Manufacturer Orders Horizontal Quench Systems
Wisconsin Oven Corp. shipped two electrically heated horizontal quench systems to an aluminum manufacturer. The systems are designed for the solution treatment of aluminum. Each system is designed to heat 1,000 pounds of aluminum to a 950°F operating temperature. Once the loads are heated to the operating temperature, they will soak at temperature and then be rapidly lowered into the quench tank in less than 10 seconds from the time the door starts to open until the load is fully submerged.
The aluminum solution-treating systems are each designed for a load size of 4 feet wide x 4 feet high x 4 feet long and have qualified operating temperature ranges of 775°F and 1075°F. The systems utilize PLC process control with an HMI operator interface.
