    This is all I could find on it with GOOGLE, and I still don't understand what a "flute" is:

    # Flute: Allows the transfer of liquid refrigerant from the condenser back to the evaporator.
    # Flute Frosting :A problem associated with rapid movement of liquid refrigerant at low temperatures from the condenser to the evaporator, causing frost to form on the flute.

    Volute is the term for the spirals in a screw compressor, I believe.

    To all:

    Thanks for nothin......

    Those were some great answers but I still don't know what it is. Maybe somethings are best left unknown.

    I don't want drivewizard to get banned for life.
