Why is brine quenching faster than water quenching?

To determine

To discuss:

How water quenching is slower than brine quenching.

Explanation

Quenching is a heat-treatment process in which the specimen/part is cooled rapidly. In this process, the metal is soaked at a high temperature above the recrystallization temperature. Then it is cooled rapidly in a liquid solution. Due to fast cooling, the quenched metals possess greater strength and hardness.

In water quenching the part is cooled rapidly by immersing it in a bath of water. When the metal at high temperature is immersed in water, the molecules of water starts evaporating at a faster rate...
