A British made PL82 with white lettering and logo. Although the PL82 would normally be found in frame output stage of a television receiver, a pair used as an audio amplifier in push pull class AB1 would deliver 9 Watts at 4 % distortion.
The peak to peak grid signal voltage would be 26 Volts and the shared anode load would be 4,000 Ohms.
Electron bombardment through the holes in the side of the anode has discoloured the glass in this ex-equipment exhibit.
The thin glass tube envelope is 20 mm in diameter and, excluding the B9A base pins, is 69 mm tall.
References: Data-sheet & 1040. Type PL82 was first introduced in 1951.
