The composition and formation kinetics of erosion products of the metallic charge (aluminum, iron) in an electric-discharge reactor operating at an open-circuit voltage of 500-1000 V, peak pulse current of 250 A, and pulse energy of 0.5-1 J were studied. Dispersion products of the charge were subjected to electron-microscopic and X-ray phase analyses. The energy yield of erosion products was determined by chemical analysis to be hundreds of times the calculated yields of electrolysis. The erosion kinetics was studied and the mechanism of erosion was considered.
