This paper presents the results of a study on the cooling performance of hot oil and molten salt quench media. It describes the tests performed, analyzes the results, and interprets the findings. It explains how the heat extraction mechanism in hot oil differs from that of NaNO2 eutectic mixtures and how it translates to differences in cooling rate, spatial uniformity, and hardness in quenched steel parts.
