The front bit (in white) is the filter. The chiller is the cart mounted affair.

It's always exciting and a bit depressing to see things like this for sale.

Both most likely, it looks very similar to the one that my local AG ubrew using for cooling and straining the wort in the primary (very fast setup).

Just mix it in with all your other brewing equipment and "crap"(wife calls it my crap collection) and mix it in she'll never know the difference unless a bill follows. See I pay in cash most the time and leave no paper trail.
On motorcycles number 5 and 7 in parts (complete bsket cases) i've added to the collection of 9 total as show winners I only get caught when DMV sents final ownership papers, plates and tags to my house. Oops, oh well. Can't fool the "WAR DEPARTMENT" aka wife all the time.
My wife doesn't know what is the use of the Bridgeport mill in my garage not alone the Miller Tig and Mig machines and lathe. Hey stay out of my space i'll stay out of your kitchen. She has noticed a growing collection of 15.5, 7.75 and corny kegs filling extra tight small spaces. Oops dear I've had those for a long time.
Selling collected BBC 454 crap for my future brewing needs is no problem with her as she knows i'm a FE engine diehard.
I say you had to buy these items or miss a great buy and time was an issue.

She does understand that the 454 stuff is going to be replaced with a 427 side-oiler and a steadily growing collection of parts for a 427 Cammer, right?

Tell her that it's a parts cleaner so you don't get grease all over.
