Product details

A Horizontal Quench System is Your Cost-Effective Solution to a Drop Bottom Furnace.

Wisconsin Oven’s horizontal quench systems (HQS Series) are available in five (5) standard sizes (custom sizes available) and either gas fired or electrically heated. The equipment utilizes an electrically operated pusher/extractor mechanism that provides a quench time as low as five (5) seconds, which combined with the load capacity of up to 8,000 lbs or more makes it ideal for aluminum solution treating applications.

The horizontal quenching furnace utilizes a high capacity recirculation blower, along with fully enclosed & pressurized supply ducts, to deliver heated air with a combination airflow arrangement. This type of uniform airflow ensures even heat distribution throughout the work chamber and excellent temperature uniformity. All HQS furnaces are fully factory tested, adjusted and certified by an extensive quality inspection PRIOR to shipment, which results in lower installation and start-up costs. Optional PLC control, data acquisition, trending, and reporting are also available.

If your load is too large for a horizontal quench system, consider a drop bottom style furnace

  • Many more options available upon request

The HQS Series is designed for solution heat treatment of aluminum.

Standard Operating Procedure:

Parts are loaded on a work grid located on the rollers of the quench platform. A pusher/extractor mechanism pulls the load into the furnace for heat treating. After the heating cycle is completed, the vertical lift door opens and the extractor mechanism pushes the load onto the quench platform, and quenches the load.

Wisconsin Oven’s horizontal quench system provides you with premium quality and the following benefits:

  • Lower capital cost than a comparable drop bottom furnace, with a significantly smaller footprint
  • Quench times as low as five (5) seconds
  • Load sizes up to 12' long and larger
  • High load capacity up to 8,000 lbs or more, for castings, extrusions, sheets and others 
  • Automated quench process for a streamlined production process and consistent results
  • Designs that meet stringent specifications such as AMS2750 and CQI9
  • Floor level design for convenient, safe maintenance access, unlike drop bottom furnaces, which are elevated
  • Heavy duty construction with quality components
  • High volume airflow provides excellent uniformity and heating rates
  • Fully adjusted and factory tested PRIOR to shipment to reduce installation and start-up times
  • Shipped completely piped, wired, fully tested and certified (as required)
