DURO-TECH® Solenoids—designed for extreme application performance

Water, dirt, dust, mud, high shock and vibration are all the nemesis of “standard” solenoids when they are asked to perform over a broad range of environmental conditions. Extreme applications can include: Off-road vehicles High dust factory and material handling environments Agricultural machinery and irrigation systems Marine and food service equipment DURO-TECH® (D-T) solenoids from

Extreme Environment Solenoids: The DURO-TECH® Story

Often, prospective solenoid users innocently expect standard solenoids to perform a function for which they were never intended. For example, Magnet Schultz of America (MSA) received a request for a solenoid to lock the steering mechanism on a military vehicle. The customer had tested one of our standard solenoids, which they secured from a
