Default Help identify this "beverage dispensing thing"

So a friend of mine gave this "thing" and I'm not quite sure what it was for. When I looked inside, it was filled with these VERY small beads possibly made of (glass?). The inlet and outlet had plastic fittings on the inside with stainless mesh screen filters, one facing up and the other facing down. There's no pressure relief on this and was hoping someone could help me out

I just left the desktop :/

There's nothing special about the insides now that I've removed the inside fittings but I'll post photos of the them later, if that helps. Also, this thing had brass barbed fittings on the outside of it.

Looks like part of an ion exchange column or filter device.
