I am a post-grad student in CT looking for high amperage/power

stand-alone circuit breakers(100 amp triple pole-single throw with
wire feed throughs on BOTH ends)

power transformers(10 KVA to 20 KVA - 120/240 primary volts
~40-50 secondary volts @ 250 to 500 amps; single or triple phase

capacitor banks(electrolytic 100 WVDC >50,000 mF)

rectifier diodes(1000volts/400 amps continuous,
preferably with heat sinks)

I'll be glad to also pay a finder's fee to anyone who can successfully
help me obtain these items, which are needed for research project
which is being funded out-of-pocket, so I'm looking for scrap/surplus/
used equipment to get these components.

Please e-mail me at [email protected], if you can help me!!

Might check with local industrial/commercial electrical contractor, or demolition contractor. They might be happy to donate something gathering dust in their shop. A lot of times they are upgrading, and the old stuff is very serviceable. Also a shop that does industrial machinery rebuilding. Might also check with local industrial electricial supply houses they might have something that was ordered and cancelled or know of a contractor that might be willing. :)
