    Liquid cooled generator, stationary. Thinking an old 2 stroke power plant.

    The suspense is killing me, what is it???

    I would have to agree with whitesquirrel that it is a pressurized liquid cooled system using a diaphragm vacuum system (assuming those are vacuum tubes and the power source is hidden by the condenser) used in manufacturing of molded materials. Regardless you are right, not something you find everyday.
    Give back more to this world than we take.

    That is what I like about these threads, it is always an education when someone posts the results. My guess was just a stab in the dark as well, trying to think outside the box. I think kss might be on the right track.

    Wow! I literally had no idea lol! Cant believe I guessed right. I think deep in my recessed memory as a teen I remember changing the soda syrup bags at my min wage job, and seeing something similar..... but I really had no clue. good stuff
