It may be the silica in the ceramic fuses causing the element to more poorly dissipate the heat generated at turn on.
I've never tried any of my equipment with the fuse bypassed, so I guess I don't know what I'm missing.
at turn-on or otherwise, is what makes for the rating of the fuse. If a ceramic fuse blows at some current draw below its rating, then it would need to be re-rated, if the UL had anything to say about it. Which is the question, when it comes to boutique fuses.
If you read my original post, it has been the experience of Mike from Acme Audio Labs that standard, UL rated ceramic fuses of the same rating as their glass counterparts tend to open sooner than the glass variety. Rick then posted that some guy over on DIYaudio had a similar experience.
I was trying to wrap my mind around that, because honestly, it still doesn't make any sense to me, which was the reason for my post.
It's not only odd, it's against "the law". Sorry for misunderstanding your reference points.
I figured you just missed my point, and that's OK, 'cause the whole subject is rather confusing.
