Hot water heating control...? What is it?
I came across this during a site visit to replace a boiler. Residential Open hot water gravity system
the item pictured has Honeywell stamped on it
My guess is that it contains mercury in the bottom section and operates a check valve.
When the return water gets hot enough the mercury would rise and close. When the water would cool down, the mercury would drop and open the valve.
