I spoke with Duracap today. they were very nice. told me they no longer supply Classe as they are now made oversea's! that was interesting and they said they sold some caps to N.P. this year! that was also interesting.

They are going to look up the spec's on the caps i have and email me the details. they dont stock any caps so they couldnt help me with replacements but they were very willing to build me custom caps if i needed them! we did speak about another project and i may be in touch with them again. but i think i am just going to go with the big CDE's for the classe.

there is a slight discount if i buy 10 or more, i need 4, anybody else what to get in on some???

shh. yes, I think I might have turned NP onto duracap about 6-8 months ago. I told him that he may as well buy from the source. And I still need to approach duracap about a custom project, with custom electrolyte and foils. My personal ideas on a BG replacement, as they have ceased production, so all bets and holds are off. At that point, no shame on leveraging the work into something else....

I have people I can go to in China, directly, with this. Big problem though. I'm not sure anyone in China can keep any secrets, no matter what has been signed by anyone. The paper carries no weight, so it should be ovious why that is. Makes the russians seem honest at times.

Try ampohm in the UK, they can also do custom caps, chokes etc... Contracts probably count for a bit more in t he UK.

I have used some of there polyprop caps, and they are first rate... not only in performance, but even the package had a onepiece durable plastic protection sleeve.. only the copper tips for soldering are exopsed... looks watertight. and 5% rateing at very low prices relatively speaking.

Well as it turns out the catalog page i was looking at had a typo that 46,000uf unit is 5-5/8 and not 4-5/8 so those will not fit.

I am going to have to go with the 30,000uf units, but even still thats 10K more uf then stock and they are cheaper too at $38.69 each. I think i am going to try and see if there is any interest in a group buy as the price drops to $34.89 each and 4 bucks is well 4 bucks.

Bill from Duracap emailed me the specs for the Classe caps today.

capacitance -----------20,000uf
voltage ----------- 70 vdc
surge V ----------- 90 vdc
dc leakage ----------- 6.0 ma
ESR -----------.022 ohm

dia -----------2.000 in.
length -----------4.125 in.

terminals -----------10-32 HP

Now that ESR # does not look like the specs i have been looking at. I need to dig up that catalog page and see what the specs are for the CDE caps i have been reviewing and see how that spec compares.
