They were used in case of boiling over or puking.You know yourself should only be steam when still is being operated correctly. But in old days with wood fires it was harder to control heat. Grand dad used both on his stills puker and thumper Thumpers Ive seen were where 1 pipe went into some liquid and other wasn't so steam came out. Reason they called em thumper was sound they make when coming up to temp and starting to produce was a thumping or kinda rumble thunder like noise. Ive seen this and know it to be true . But what other foke call stuff at other places I cant say.

Left comments on both.
Love the picture of the thump keg which "is to seperate out the solids"!
Shows both pipes out of the water!
Didn't see the picture you are talking about, but sounds like a puke barrell. They have both lines outa the water and are used to seperate the solids and any puking liquids.... ....
