The Varian 0981-82850-301 is a thoria iridium ion source for use in Varian gas detectors. The device is barely a vacuum tube, as it has no glass envelope; the envelope for the tube remains attached to the gas detector. To protect the ion source from a world of dirty humans, the device is shipped in a protective plastic cylinder, which contains stern warnings to handle the device by its base only.
