The operating piston with the piston rod moves within an oil-filled tube. During the axial movement of the piston rod, the oil is forced through narrow channels and valves through the pistons. With the speed of the piston motion, the flow resistance and thus the damping effect increases.
DT shock absorbers are designed for a service life of 10 million cycles. Corrosion resistance is tested in a salt spray test for 500 hours.
The function of the shock absorber is guaranteed even at extreme temperatures of between –40 °C and +70 °C.
The reinforced sheet metal casing tubes have a thickness of 2.5 mm. This prevents premature corrosion.
The piston rod has a thickness of 22 mm and is furnished with a chrome plating of at least 25 µ. The high-quality, multi-lip piston rod seal adjusts itself to normal wear and tear.
