High Power Impulse Capacitors

These Sangamo Capacitors are rated at 60,000 volts d.c., 1.75 ufd, and will each store 3,300 joules of energy! Weight: about 200 pounds each.

Originally out of a linear particle accelerator, they are excellent for building power supplies that deliver incredible power pulses to operate rail guns, magnetizers, exploding wire experiments, and exploding water studies. I use them for exploding wire experiments. I may post some info and pics on exploding wire and exploding water experiments in the near future.
They are extremely dangerous, and I do not recommend that just anyone work with them.

If you'd like more information on using these dangerous capacitors for your scientific work, E-mail me directly and perhaps I can answer your questions. Bert Pool
