Get this from a library. Mercury-arc rectifiers and mercury-vapour lamps. [J A Fleming, Sir] Invented inthe mercury-arc rectifier made it possible to supply high-voltage di-rect current (HVDC) for major operations, such as powering radio transmitters and the New York subway network.

Although mercury-arc rectifiers were gradually phased out in the s, their legacy is proving extremely valuable for the renewable energy ://   Left: small amounts of mercury visible on a large discharge tube.\ Right: older heavy ballast for a standard ceiling mounted merc fixture 2.

() Marshall Morgan and・アンブ. UV lamps for sterilisation are low-pressure mercury-vapour lamps, which emit about 86% of their light at nm. This wavelength coincides well with one of the two peaks of the germicidal effectiveness curve (i.e. effectiveness for UV absorption by DNA). One of these peaks is /mercury-vapor-lamp.

The metal rectifiers, as compared to mercury arc rectifiers (a) operate on low temperatures (b) can operate on high voltages (c) can operate on heavy loads (d) give poor regulation (e) none of the above Ans: a.

In a mercury arc rectifier, the anode is usually made of (a) copper (b) aluminium (c) silver (d) graphite (e) tungsten Ans: d. Mercury arc rectifiers were invented by Peter Cooper Hewitt in and further developed throughout the s and s by researchers in both Europe and North America.

Before the advent of solid-state devices, mercury arc rectifiers were one of the more efficient :// Mercury lamps need a certain voltage to start up the arcs, which have an electrode on each end. Once there is a full voltage running from the starting electrode to the main electrode, the argon gas begins to become ionized by the electrons and an arc is formed between two electrodes, like a :// Cathode Processes in the Mercury Arc Softcover reprint of the original 1st ed.
