Designed as general purpose triodes, two independent valves exist in the ECC82 envelope. An amplification factor of 17 is quoted, and the ECC82 is virtually a pair of EC90 triodes in a single envelope but not designed for RF use.
A special quality version was also produced, the E82CC. Designed for differential amplifiers in industrial equipment, the anti microphonic and matched pair version E182CC was also made.
