THE first 10,000-ampere 60-cycle mechanical rectifier installed in the United States has now completed 32 months of operation. Anticipated high conversion efficiency has been confirmed. The current supplied the isolated electrolytic load has been controlled well within the required limits. Contact life remains the major maintenance problem. However, recent developments in contact design have increased contact life and give promise of still further increase.
