Thermal Ratings:
Energy Storage:               
14  kJ (20 kHU)     
Energy dissipation:     
233 J/sec (333 HU/sec)   

 Cooling rate:                       
Maximum 7.5 kJ/min (10.6 kHU/min) averaged over a
one minute interval.

Cooling and Insulation:

     This tube is intended to be used in an environment in which a high-grade transformer oil is used as the primary means of cooling and insulation.  
The oil should have a minimum dielectric strength of 45 kVp per ASTM D 877-49.  All ratings herein assume operation in well circulated oil at a temperature of 70 degrees C maximum.
