RE: Why use Mercury?

I suspect the absence of "sag" compared with vacuum rectifiers is what you like when Hg vapor is employed.

No sag with Schottkys too and they are "dead" quiet. The time delays you use with Hg vapor will work without change, in combination with high PIV Schottkys. Give 'em a try, if you have not already done so.
