Saw a type of dry-mount press I'd never seen before at my local
recycled-goods place. It's definitely not a Seal, Inc. press, which is
the only type I've seen until now. This one has a larger frame, and in
addition to the heated platen and bed, there's an intermediate part with
a plastic sheet held between two rods that goes between the platen and
bed. The plastic is flexible but seem impervious. There's a large bolt
in the middle of the frame to adjust the pressure, and two lights, one
marked "HEAT", the other "AT TEMP", plus a temperature control.

Does anyone know what type of press this is and how this works? This one
seems to be in good working condition and not too much money.

Sounds like this might be a T-shirt press.
