How the bleeder resistor would help, if the reverse current exceeds 37 mA?
At 325 V screen voltage this makes 12 W - the maximum screen dissipation.
I have seen many brand new tubes with much higher maximum reverse current,
which they use to achieve at moderate power levels. They are good only to
work at full power in industrial devices.
