Unbreakable magnets

  • 19-Jun-2008 01:10 EDT


Suitable for harsh off-highway applications, high-strength Plastalloy magnets from Electrodyne are said to extend the service life of drivetrains, hydraulic lines, and metalworking equipment by capturing metal filings, chips, and other ferrous materials that could damage downstream components. Available in various configurations as sheets or shapes, the oil-resistant magnets operate in temperatures up to 150°C (302°F) and improve filter element performance. Unbreakable Plastalloy can be magnetized using various methods, including conventional, two-pole, and multiple-pole, and is suitable for environmentally sensitive applications. Magnets can be bent, twisted, and flexed without losing magnetic energy.
