The installations include Can-Eng's Precision Air Quench (PAQ) Technology, which integrates a combination of air handling technologies and computational fluid dynamic modeling which uniformly delivers conditioned quench media.
Using molecular architecture, says Dow Plastics, it has achieved a polymer with excellent melt strength for the air quench blown film process.
Along with our BHTS[R] system, CAN-ENG has developed a Precision Air Quench System (PAQ[TM]) for the engineered quenching of production aluminum castings.

In situations where more precision is required, particularly for thin-wall parts with various cross-sections, Can Eng developed a Precision Air Quench (PAQ) system that enables uniform cooling to reduce residual stresses.
Beyond the heat treatment to convert the white iron cementite to a temper carbon form, these specific grades were made by either a controlled air quench and temper from the malleablizing temperature (resulting in a tempered pearlite) or a second heat treat operation consisting of reheating followed by an oil quench and temper (tempered martensite).
CAN-ENG has also developed a Modular Heat Treatment System that will solution treat, precision air quench (PAQ) and artificial age, structural automotive castings.
However, if a heat treat facility is used, these foundries could pour a base metal and let the heat treating service air quench or liquid quench the castings up to the higher property requirements of the other alloys, thus reducing the alloys the foundry needs to melt.
