Functional description
Quench fluid systems (Plan 51) are employed:
  • to absorb leakage
  • to monitor the leakage rate (e.g. through periodic reading of the level in the tank)
  • to prevent icing
  • to protect against dry running
  • to stabilize the lubricating film
  • to exclude air from the media in order to prevent a reaction with oxygen in the air
