Default DCG5/5000GS Valve

I have a handful of these large valves apparently made by Philips. Can someone on these forums give me some information about them: What are they and are they useful in audio amplifiers?

Thanks for any info and help you can give me.

Regards,
Joe A

These are half-wave mercury vapour rectifiers . Useful for high voltage choke-input supplies
