Anyone have a reference or information on longevity and reliability experiments in high power spark gaps?

I am looking at the reliability of a 97GW 78Kamp discharge spark gap I would like to know the erosion factor and fouling rate of different configurations.

Doesn't the manufacturer supply that reliability data?

I am not sure that they will be available for my configuration. Over all size efficiency is king in this design. So I was planning to construct them myself. However that is a good idea, I will have to check out commercially available gaps for there ratings. Otherwise I will do the tests myself and I don’t really have time for that. Thank you for your reply.
