BY RICH BONKOWSKI, W3HWJ REPLACINGSELENIUMRECTIFIERS

well, you should replace the selenium rectifier unit. It is only a question of time before it will fail. If you are lucky, it will fail gracefully, blow-ing a fuse or showing an “open” circuit. Unfor-tunately, if your rectifier overheats, you could have lots of nasty, toxic smoke. Replacement is easy and silicon diodes are

Replacing A Selenium Rectifier With A Silicon Diode ...

Can selenium rectifiers be rebuilt? Selenium rectifiers, with their metal fins and long lived application in battery chargers and in tube type television sets are not intended to be repaired. Once a rectifier plate becomes damaged or it is burnt (unmistakable stink), the entire assembly should be replaced.

07-12-1998  I always replace selenium rectifiers as standard practice with BA gear. If you have the schematic and know the voltages, choosing the proper silicon diode is easy. With no other information, a reasonable rule of thumb is that a single stack handles about 25 volts PIV. Thus the typical stack for rectifying something off the power line would be

How do I replace this 40+ year old selenium rectifier ...

14-06-2004  One side of the selenium rectifier will be marked with a plus (+). The new rectifier will replace the old one, but the striped end goes to where the + end of the selenium was. By process of elimination, the unstriped end goes to where the other selenium rectifier lead was. The selenium rectifier should be discarded.

Yes, lots of German radios had full-wave selenium bridge rectifiers. Replacing those with full-wave silicon bridge units makes a lot of sense.Siemens and other German companies seemed to have a good inexpensive process to manufacture those bridge rectifiers in the 1950s.

Selenium Full-Wave Bridge Rectifier Testing

Replace Rectifier Meter should read infinity (or a very high reading) The diode is not allowing Voltage to flow through it in this direction, which is normal. The meter is indicating an "open circuit". We expect a good diode to be open in this test, so everything is testing good. Selenium Full-Wave Bridge Rectifier Testing Drawn by Jon Pardue 2007

Selenium Rectifier VS Silicon Diode – The Wasteland

11-01-2018  Selenium Rectifiers were basically the first solid state rectifier to replace Vacuum Tube Rectifiers. In a nut shell it is a stack of plates with Selenium that can turn AC into DC. By today’s standards you should not use Selenium Rectifiers and use Silicon Diodes or if possible if it’s a Vacuum Tube device then use a Vacuum Tube Rectifier.

Replacing selenium rectifier... - narkive

I've got a Westinghouse 5 tube AC/DC radio that has a selenium rectifier and I'm guessing I should replace it so I looked through my books and I found a recommendation of a 1N4007 silicon diode. Don't have any onhand so wondering if I can use Radio Shacks PTC205 (catalog # 276-1114)? They're rated at 2.5A, 1000 PIV. Will it work? Thanks.

09-11-2015  Regarding your plan to replace the selenium rectifier using state-of-the-art silicon diode rectifiers is acceptable but on account of the increased efficiency of the silicon diode rectifier, the derived DC voltage will be significantly higher than with the older selenium rectifier.

Since this amp chassis is already so small I want to replace the selenium rectifier with a 14007 diode. I want to know any tips or methods you guys use doing this. I have it ready to mount on a small terminal strip but was curious about proper installation of direction of the cathode and using a dropping resistor in series after the diode.

Replacing Selenium Rectifiers in Zenith Trans-Oceanics

Replacing Selenium Rectifiers in Zenith Trans-Oceanics All the miniature tube Trans-Oceanics, from the G500 to the B600, were equipped with selenium rectifiers instead of the traditional tube rectifier. Selenium rectifiers are notorious for failing gradually over time. Their forward voltage drop increases to the point that the tubes stop working.

09-11-2015  Is it "standard practice" to replace the selenium rectifier when servicing the IBM/Simplex master clocks? No; provided all wiring is intact, safe and not altered. If you are more comfortable replacing the old rectifier with a silicon type, then install the updated part inconspicuously and leave the original part in place but disconnected from service.
