Gassy..some actually breaks down at 4 or 5 KV and low emission.
Yes, Richardson is the distributor for Triton, Amperex, and Eimac.
You can buy from dealers but they have to buy from Richardson at whole sell
Covimag (Amperex) and Eimac should reconsider their deal with Richardson.
The Amperex 4-1000A is quite impressive. Large graphite anode. A very
structure for the anode. Other brands have a habit of getting bent out of
alignment if the box is dropped.
However with a little practice you can bump them back into position.
One other thing about the Amperex 4-1000A's. The graphite anodes have
a large thermal mass and you should
leave the blower on the tube for several minutes after shut down.
