Air Fan Quench Zone

An air fan quench zone is a rectangular quench zone and has four sides: left, right, top, and bottom.

Each side of a rectangular quench zone can have a fan set which can be enabled/disabled for a specific run. By default, the top fan set is enabled.

  1. From the Quenching ribbon, click the Quench tool.

    The secondary toolbar with quench zone types is displayed.
  2. Click the Air Fan icon.
    Adjust the zone position over the profile using the move tool in the microdialog to move the box in X,Y, Z directions.
    Clicking the buttons in the microdialog enables/disables the fans in the top, bottom, right or left of the zone respectively.
    A rectangular air fan zone will be created. Microdialogs to edit the box dimensions will be populated along the width, length, and height of the box. Another microdialog with air fan zone parameters will be populated.
  3. Change the parameters of the fan by clicking the fan. In the microdialog, edit the parameters and press Enter.

    The fans will be recreated with the new values. Fan Pitch is the distance between two fans. The position of the first fan is specified from the starting edge of the zone using the Offset value.

    The Flow Rate specified is for the entire side and is equally divided to each fan. Fans are positioned at equal distances on the side, with the specified end offset (both ends). The fans are parallel to the Z axis.

    Temperature of the air is also specified in this dialog.
