In any cold-treating procedure (such as stabilizing, hardening, or
shrink-fitting) heat can be dissipated more rapidly if the unit is
filled to two-thirds capacity with a convection fluid, such as methy-
lene chloride or ethyl alcohol (denatured alcohol) M.P. 179°F
(82°C), and the parts immersed in the fluid.
The parts should remain in the fluid at a temperature of –120°F
(–84°C) for a sufficient length of time after dissipation of heat to
ensure complete transformation within the material. The precise
length of time will vary (for example, 42.5 pounds of steel contains
1000 Btu per hour). The rated capacity of the Deepfreeze Model
F-120 is 1000 Btu per hour. Therefore, a period of 1 hour is
required to dissipate the natural heat from the 42.5 pounds of steel,
and an additional 11

⁄2to 2 hours are required to complete the trans-

formation of austenite to martensite.
