The example circuits show how to AC couple it to drive the filament, and also use the output to drive a 2-phase voltage multiplier to get the HV supply. No magnetics!

I think these tubes are a special case to the rule that filaments should be AC driven to prevent density changes and AC doesn't seem to be necessary. Maybe for the purists it is the best thing to do ?
