General Electric ZP-597 Magnetron Tube  
Written by AnubisTTP on 2008-11-15  


The GE ZP-597 is a large liquid-cooled magnetron, built in the 1940s. Little is known about this tube, but it appears to be a mechanically tunable device; a threaded collar allows the length of the cavity to be varied without tools. The tube has two pairs of liquid cooling connections, one of which is a simple copper tube that circles the outside of the device.
