Default What is this thing?

I found this on ebay and bought it for the parts, but what do you think it was originally for?

An ectoplasmic super condenser.

Ghosts go in, the goo comes out.

Pretty nice collection of stainless. Is that a hollow cylinder?

Might make a nice hopback.

I am presuming it is a hollow cylinder, I don't know what is in it, for example does it have a defusion stone in there or something of the sort?

I thought I could put little animals in it and see how much pressure they could tolerate...

Actually, I can use the parts for all kinds of projects, but it would be cool to know what it was designed for.

Strange device. You can't get any continuous flow through that in it's current set-up. It looks like you charge it, reconfigure the valving and input, and then bleed the chamber.

An elaborate RO water contraption, that or an instrament used by the axis of evil.

I am assuming there is an inlet on the bottom of the cylinder.

I am too. It has a one way valve just after the left ball valve, a needle valve on top, another ball valve just past the gauge.

Somebody invested a little change to create whatever it is.

It's clearly a swedish, er, "recreation" assistance device. I see the vacuum gauge, but the pump seems to be missing.

Yes, there is, it goes into the ss tee. But you still won't get flow through the way it is now, you can only charge it and then reconfigure valving and de-pressurize. Maybe some kind of inpregnation device?

Why not ask the seller? Might be a good idea to at least know what was being put through it to know how best to go about cleaning it.
