In this paper we examine a modified quench ring for quenching small cylinders. Parts are heated by induction, and then dropped into an immersion quench ring. Previous investigation had indicated that inadequate quenching of the parts was occurring due to poor agitation in the original quench ring. A new design was created, and the agitation was modeled using CFD. The microstructure of the parts was modeled using SIMHEAT™. The new design quench ring was fabricated and implemented. A comparison of the old and new designs shows no soft spots in the new design.
