Episode 8 - Out of Gas

Catalyzer

Does anyone know what the Catalyer from Out of Gas really is?
I've looked at pumps, engine parts and a lot of other things but couldn't find the correct part.

It is said that Nathan Fillion has the original part, I would have asked him but I think I lost his email address :lol:

Please help!

I saw some similar looking things while looking at aircraft parts on ebay. But then it could be from anything :?

I've posted on an aircraft parts forum to see if anyone recognizes it.

I literally spent nearly my whole weekend looking for this thing and the closest I found were some car impeller pumps which vaguely resembled the shape. Someone must have a clue at least what the thing actually is...

I think it is an aircraft part because I get the impression that the set and prop makers bought a bunch of junk in one large lot from the place they rented the Ariel Ambulance from.
Plus, it looks a little large for most automotive applications.
Just my thoughts,

I get the feeling it's a pump. The configuration is that of a centrifugal pump, it has a central inlet and a 'volute' case for developing pressure.
The fittings also look 'food grade' to me.

Might be a brewery pump....

Dunno.

I swear I remember reading something on the net where a guy said that the black piece was an add-on piece from something totally different. I've been trying to find the info again, but no luck so far.

Did you guys spot that it's the same part that Wash is messing around with in the junkyard where they find the derelict Ambulance in 'Ariel'.

He slings it across the yard and it hits the wreck.
