Snubber capacitors are used when there is a need to suppress transient voltage in a circuit, or quick movement in a circuit. One of the most reliable of these snubber capacitors is the oil impregnated type. This provides high insulation resistance. These oil filled capacitors have extra-long life and are hermetically sealed. They operate typically at 125°C. Maximum dissipation factor is less than 1%. You will also find that these capacitors work in excess of 200 hours life test at greater than 1.3 rated voltage.
Oil capacitors come in two styles: inserted tab construction and extended foil construction. You can find the oil to be vitamin Q mineral oil, or an equally reliable oil.
These axial oil capacitors are hermetically sealed to ensure long life and reliability.
You will find voltage ratings of:
Oil capacitors are excellent in audio applications. Audio capacitors need to be quiet, long-lasting, and meet high temperature requirements. You will find these MIL-C-25A capacitors on the shelf at TEDSS.com, the world’s largest inventory of these high quality capacitors at the best prices.
Extended Foil 125°C operating temperature.
Inserted tab 125°C operating temperature.
