Salt bath quenching stands out for its environmental friendliness in metal heat treatment. This method, with its high thermal conductivity and water addition for fast quenching, is well-suited for high-temperature processes like austempering. It not only ensures maximum hardness with minimal deformation but also proves to be economically viable in the long term. The increasing usage of salt bath quenching in recent years is attributed, in part, to its environmentally friendly characteristics.
