The DY87 is a television EHT rectifier introduced in 1956. It was designed to have its heater supply produced by an overwind on the line output transformer. The 18,000 Volt rating places this as a rectifier for medium sized monochrome televisions.
The anode cylinder is at the top and connects to the top cap. The anode is closed at the top and so forms a bell. The stout wire support rod is fused into the glass at the top. The lower wider cylinder is cathode / screen.
The lower electrodes and base. The spot welds between the wires and electrodes are clearly visible.
The thin glass tube envelope is 22 mm in diameter, and excluding the B9A base pins is 62 mm tall.
