Chutes are common in foodservice equipment. A chute is a vertical or inclined plane, channel, duct or passage through which ingredients move by gravity. An example may be coffee beans stored in the bean hopper of an espresso machine that move under gravity to a grinder via a chute. Chutes are also commonly used with grilling equipment to channel grease away from the cooking surface, and to move ice to remote dispensers under the force of a motorized auger.
An evaporator is a device used in a process to turn the liquid form of a chemical substance such as water into its gaseous form (vapor). The liquid is evaporated, or vaporized, into a gas form of the targeted substance in that process.
One kind of evaporator is a kind of radiator coil used in a closed compressor driven circulation of a liquid coolant. That is called an air-conditioning system (A/C) or refrigeration system allowing a compressed cooling chemical, such as R-22 (Freon) or R-410A, to evaporate/vaporize from liquid to gas within the system while absorbing heat from the enclosed cooled area (for example, a refrigerator or indoor room) in the process. This works in the closed A/C or refrigeration system with a condenser radiator coil that exchanges the heat from the coolant into the ambient environment.
