The manufacturing of this tube was discontinued already in September 1922. Needs a ballast tube WB800. Two versions existed: The WR21A (for Amplifier) clear glass tip, and the WR21D (for Detector) with green lacquer tip.

This tube is fitted with a base made by the Shaw Insulator Company and was surplus stock when the Westinghouse company bought Moorhead Laboratories inventory in 1920
