I would say yes since I have already "tested" my set up with 30KVAC+ .5
amps ( approx 18KW) yes I must admit they do "errode a tad " but not to
the point where I have to replace them every 10 hours of running... ( I
must have over 100 hours on the present set )
I have tried stainless steel, brass, copper, monel, haspaloy(
spelling?)... but the tungsten holds up the best...

Hi Scot (or is that Elmer Fudd),
No apology necessary. All I needed to do was ask, right :o)).
all do it.
So I conclude that my 1/8" tungsten rod will be fine when I switch to a
5KVA PIG that I will try to run at 8KVA.
My first asynchronous rotary gap used 1/8" tungsten rods with a 5 kva pig
running at about 7 kva. It works but the rods do melt a bit on the ends.
