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?

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?

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

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

>>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 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.

nothing to do with wine production

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)?
