That is a piece I happened to walk past, and I thought "What the Hell is it?" and snapped a picture.

I have no answers.  It was outside a restaurant, iirc.  Maybe some kind of pressure relief valve for an oil cooker?

I know what all the parts are. I just can't tell what it's being used for.
It shouldn't be for an oil cooker. The strange piece is what's called an air gap. It is primarily to prevent a backup in the drain system from being pushed up into pipes that carry potable water. You also have an air gap in the drain from your dishwasher. That's the funny looking cylindrical bit sticking up behind your sink.

That makes perfect sense. The drain is for the condensation produced by the refrigeration system. The reason for the trap is to keep warm ambient air away from the cooling system.

FUCK !!! I hit "Edit" instead of "quote". I am very sorry. I am going to use the excuse that all the smoke in the air here is making me woozy. Will you buy that for a dollar?

Go to google with a blank search. At the top right of the page is the word "Images". Click on that. Then click on the camera icon that shows up. It gives you the option of uploading an image file or entering a URL. Piece of cake.

Fuck it.

Top LEFT has an "Images" option but that does not lead to a camera icon.  Maybe mobile is different, maybe Apple is different.  I can't be arsed.

I guess it doesn't work on mobile. I tried it on my iPhone and it was completely useless.
And I intentionally used the images from the vendor's web site so that google image search would work and make it simple. Shit! A pox on non-standard googles!

Here it is.

Ah that makes sense. I used to have a bunch of weird drive mounting brackets, back when I hot rodded computers.
