Not to put you on the spot, but can you share withtoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
us the types of failures you witnessed in these new
manufacture can capacitors?
It might allow us to determine what they are doing wrong.
For instance, can capacitors were originally made during
the era where the capacitor's aluminum wasn't pre anodized
before construction. They anodized it in place by
applying a current limited peak required voltage.
Capacitors built during that era have a much more reactive
(to aluminum) electrolyte, than do current manufacture
There have been many electrolyte failures since the
industrial espionage days when spies from China stole
bogus files detailing one highly regarded manufacturer's
recipe.. and hundreds of Chinese manufacturers, and a
few Japanese, made little time bombs using the purloined
