Quenching is conducted following the austenitizing of a material in order to yield a harder microstructure, such as martensite or lower bainite. Oil is by far the most common quenching medium, but there are three main considerations when deciding to quench a material.

- Various quenching systems and quenching media employed in heat treating
- The interrupted quenching technique for special processes
