A separator is a machine or device that separates something into its constituent or distinct elements. A simple separator may be a mechanical device that collects items and sorts them by characteristics such as size or shape. A vapor–liquid separator is a device used in several industrial applications to separate a vapor–liquid mixture. They are commonly used in refrigeration to separate moisture and oil vapor from coolants. A particulate separator collects small contaminants or byproducts where particles are suspended in some medium.
A tank, receptacle, bowl, or chamber is a reservoir. They may be used to store liquid or solid ingredients or may serve as a waste container. In restaurant equipment, examples of reservoirs may be seen in ice machines, beverage equipment, coffee machines, condiment dispensers, dish washing equipment, waste handling equipment, and many more.
