ABSTRACT --- Combination air/water quench units process water-quenched
profiles and air-cooled alloys. Combining both media into a single footprint
makes these units attractive. The ET ’04 paper, “The Ultimate Quench,”
reformatted profile sensitivity as a function of temperature, detailing the
application in high-performance water quench. This theory’s application to
combination quench design is demonstrated in this paper. Second-generation
combination quench design achieves better performance and improved
