3B24(W) & 1616 tube


2013-11-07 9:40 am
Hi! This is Jose Miguel. I am building a tube power supply for a line preamp. Main HV rail will be based on RGN1064 in CLCLC setup into a 250V tube regulator.
This regulator uses an aditional screen regulated power supply. It is in the screen regulator where I want to use 3B24 and 1616 tubes. I have downloaded al datasheets but capacitor input value does not figure. PSUD2 includes a 1616 model but not for the 3B24.

Can anyone recommend a safe value for both tubes??

Thank you very much in advance!!
