Are there any disadvantages of using a housing-less welding diode rather than one in a hermetically sealed housing?

ABB's answer

Housing-less welding diodes have a higher current rating but special care must be taken during handling and operation of these diodes. For detailed information please see our application note "High current rectifier diodes for welding applications".
