HVR Linear Disc Resistors are
manufactured from a carefully blended mixture of clays, alumina and
carbon. After blending, the material is pressed to the required shape,
with diameters ranging from 0.3 to 15.1cm. The resistors are then fired at
high temperature in a tunnel kiln with controlled atmosphere.
With the capability of sustaining
energies ranging from Joules to Mega-Joules, at frequencies up to Mega-Hz,
HVR Linear Disc Resistors can be used in even the most demanding
applications such as electrical transmission, traction, AC/DC drives,
pulse power, dummy loads, induction heating and pulse forming networks.
