Re: Energy Discharge Capacitor

Actually, Aerovox PX series low inductance caps are ideal for high current pulsed power applications - rail guns, electromagnetic forming, etc. They use kraft paper foil construction, an older, but very reliable technology that delivers long life and high energy discharges. Typical ratings include 20% voltage reversal, and 100 kA per shot. These are comparable to the Maxwell "C" style energy discharge caps that I use for coin crushing.

Almost 10kJ, definely enough to shrink a quarter. Seems kinda light for that many J tho, kinda wonder how many shots it was designed for new and how many are left. I personally wouldn't wanna pay $295 plus freight if it was gonna self-destruct after 5 shots. No warranty as-is too. Guess it depends if you feel lucky.

Hmmm, this may be the wrong list...

I know these are not good for tesla work, but does anyone have an
opinion about them for quartershrinking and other pulse discharge

Aerovox PX30D51
100nH max

a vendor has 'em as item 7630022801 on ebay.
