This paper provides an overview of salt quench hardening and how it compares with oil quenching. It explains how salt quenching promotes hardenability, ductility, and strength as well as distortion control, heat extraction, and process reduction. It discusses equipment layout configurations, NFPA guidelines and safety practices, and salt quench processes for austempering, marquenching, and neutral hardening applications.
