Found this on the Tunstall site, it's some kind of trap, I guess. But that does it do?
The description is beyond vague.

    Nobody's used one of these? Now I'm really curious!

    Looks like a steam trap.

    Hi folks! Scott Malo here from Tunstall. Our Apollo steam trap was originally born out of needing a repairable steam trap for the dry cleaning industry where a lot of higher pressure inverted buckets are used. It can be installed horizontally or vertically and as you can see in the attached PDF, can be repaired by changing the high pressure / high capacity bellows without needing to completely change the entire trap. They have also found their way into hospitals and facilities that have higher pressure lines without a lot of available footprint. If anyone needs more info, please feel free to email me at [email protected]. Thanks Wall!

    @Scott.Malo I have stumbled on the page and found it vague too. Is it of any use for residential low pressure vacuum steam heat systems? What's this "Optional Modulating Orifice Technology"?
