Heavy Anode Gas Discharge Tube






          23” (57cms) long with a 7” (18cms) bulb. Unknown make. The etching on the anti-cathode around the target reads “Patented Sept.5 1911” and, on the lower side of the anti-cathode, a serial number “325”. 


           The centre of the tungsten target shows moderate erosion.


           The regeneration device in the auxiliary chamber consists of a small glass tube stuffed with what looks like two types of material: the base of the tube (to the right in the picture below) contains some black material, probably of carboniferous nature, while the rest of the tube is stuffed with a whitish fibrous-looking content, very likely asbestos.
