help mixing brine quench


Recommended Posts

This post was broken into 3 separate posts, introduction, brine quench, and solid fuel forges. This is one reason we ask folks to post one subject per post so we know which question to answer.

Do a search on IForgeIron for brine quench, Rob Gunther, etc. Rob has a formula posted several places on the site mixing water, salt and a couple other ingredients to make his famous bring quench.

well, lets see...H2O weights 8.33# per gallon, and saturated brine weights in at 14 #/gallon. so you can add about 5.5 #/gallon of salt..as a reffrence..sea water is about 9.4 ppg.and warmer the water the easier it absorbes the salt. and you may want to mix it up some if it sets for a while, hope this helps, jimmy
