Here it is:
Gizmo # 51 [siternetusa.com] (corrected - it is quiz #51 - could a moderator change the title?)

What is it exactly?
What does it do?

Does any fluid or gas pass in and out of it?

Sometimes it's referred to as TXV.

yes

>Sometimes it's referred to as TXV.
well, I don't know what TXV is either.

thermostatic expansion valve?
like I said above, no, it is not a valve?

You are all cold, although Mivox is already above freezing.

Above freezing before anyone else... that's a first. ;)

OK, is it a fluid that passes in and out of it, or is it a gas?

would you usually find one of these, or many, in its given environment?

I believe it is a gas when it gets to the gizmo, but at some point it is a liquid.

A mixer.
Does a liquid or a gas pass though it?

not a mixer

>Anything to do with supercooled gases?
Can you be more specific?

Robert Charlton

Is it some sort of a valve that prevents liquified gases and gases still in a gaseous state from mixing?

JonB




msg:277357

maybe it is pump that makes liquid oxygen for divers. or any other high pressure liquid from gas maker?

>>Can you be more specific?<<

Messages crossed there... When a gas is cold enough, it becomes a liquid. I'd say at the liquid nitrogen range would be cold enough to satisfy what I mean... not getting way down to 2-degrees Kelvin or anything.

It looks more like it would be a pressure valve than a pump... maybe even a pressure relief valve.

It does not use liquid nitrogen?

does it or doesn't it?

Guys and Gals, it is not a valve of any kind.

It looks like it could be a corkscrew/controlled breathing type thing for wine.

sorry about the question mark, it is not supposed to be there.

Correction: It does not use liquid nitrogen.

exhaust port from some type of liquid to gas conversion?

JonB

well, what about oxigen to liquid maker for divers. or steam boiler (steam comes out at the top holes)

defanjos

no

nothing to do with wine production

does not convert anything

nothing to do with diving

Hint:
On my previous responses I already included a key word

Is the cutaway chamber sealed (when it's not cut-away of course), forcing the substance to pass solely through the two small tube coming out the back? Or does the substance have some other avenue of passage (in which case, where is that additional opening)?

korkus2000

So is there state conversion while gas/liquid pass through it?

i bet the keyword is "freezing". maybe artificial snow maker?
