I've just demo'd a TC using an MMC made of these caps all day
on an intermittent basis. I'd say about 2 hours total running
time and the MMC was running about 1.5kV below its DC rating.
There was a tiny bit of warm air detecable in the lunchbox
which houses the cap but was probably due mostly to the
relatively thin cap leads. A coil never fails to please at an
open day. For the first time I got a large lab to operate in.
