    An investigation of the process of electrical strength recovery is performed using demountable devices and a TPI-10k/50 two-section, cold-cathode, sealed-off thyratron. The method of forced removal of the discharge burning products is used via a non-self-sustained discharge immediately after a breakdown in the thyratron. Measurements of the non-self-sustained discharge current allow estimating the time of the electrical strength recovery in the thyratron sections.
