There was only one part to clean was large glass feed through that
supported the collection electrode. The chambers were polished nickel and
were cleaned with deionized water and alcohol. We actually had very
little problems with leakage once the electormeter was encapsulated in
wax. The only insulating part exposed to humidity was the outer surface
of the glass feed through. The feed through support ring was grounded.
Do you know of any good subs for 3N155A?
