    So, basically one of these, but it runs off steam pressure instead of air pressure ?

    Not quite. I think the live steam interacts directly with the water from the description. The air driven one is a diaphragm pump of some type, with the air driving a cam or piston setup in the centre. I think.....

    The air one is just a couple of diaphragms going back and forth. No piston or cams. They're a dead simple device when you take them apart. We use them to pump our our oil/sludge drain carts at the mines. You can jam them up, but it's amazing what will make it through one.

    The old Stirling pumping engines are fascinating, but they do need a fire lit under them. I've a small model of one somewhere.
