The DF33 is a variable μ RF pentode for dry battery operation. Mullard designate this device for service at both RF and IF in broadcast receivers.
The relatively large size of the valve suggests that it was not designed for battery portable sets but for fixed operation. The filaments had to have the lowest possible consumption due to the cost of the dry batteries.
This exhibit has a metal skirt to hold the envelope and the IO base. The DF33 shows this valve type with a Bakelite base holder and a different sized envelope.
The wide glass tube envelope is 28 mm diameter and 81 mm long excluding the IO base pins.
