In the specific embodiment df the `invention i1

This invention relates to electron discharge de_-`

il) designates an electron discharge device ingen.
eral, the one chosen for exempliiication hereinïbeè,`
thereto for prolonging the useful life thereof.
In various electron discharge devices or tubes,
especially those employing or developing high
power, considerable strain is developed through
heat and otherwise which ultimatelyresults in the
tube becoming defective or otherwise undesirable
ing specifically a transmitting‘tube. . Said device’`
or tube, Which,»of cou-rse, utilizes the usual-triode
electrodes, is shown as having one of those elec.
trodes, namely, metallic> anode H, also` constitut
or not usable. The prevailing use of anodes and
other' electrodes as parts of the envelopes, sealed
to the glass portions _of such-envelopes, renders
the need for corrective means vmore. imperative.
Either a high temperature gra-dient or a_ high
electro-static iield> gradient atv the seal between
themetal and the glass of‘duplex envelopessuch
