Air quenching is a heat treatment process to control materials property of metals. The effects of air velocity and probe orientation during the air quenching process were investigated experimentally. An assembly was designed to remove the probe from a furnace and quickly reposition it around a single axis at predetermined angular increments. Experimental tests showed how these variables affect the heat transfer coefficient curves and their result on material properties.
