suction coil

**Don't** use "suction ring!! This is a piece of **surgical** equipment!!!! See Google search results at:"suction ring"

I think this must be a "low pressure coil"

From LGDT:

coil (a)
Note(s): ((Dans la source citée, l'entrée se lit comme suit:)) coil (flexible metallic hose assembly). (a)
couronne n f (a)
normalisé par un organisme national ou international
Forme habituelle de conditionnement des tuyaux métalliques flexibles enroulés sur eux-mêmes. (a)

((Dans la source citée, l'entrée se lit comme suit:)) couronne (tuyauterie métallique flexible). (a)

coil (bc)
Note(s): Tubbing copper seamless ((...)) 66 ft coil. (c)
couronne n f (ab)
Note(s): ((Dans la source citée, l'entrée se lit comme suit:)) couronne ( de fil). (b)[Office de la langue française, 1990]

While "suction" does look like the most likely candidate, in terms of overallmeaning of "aspiration," a Google search for "suction coil" yields only some very exotic examples. From Termium, for "aspiration," relating to plumbing/heating:

Refrigerating Machines and Appliances

low side s CORRECT

low pressure side s CORRECT
suction side s CORRECT
low pressure s TRANSL. SOURCE
DEF - that part of a refrigerating system operating at approximately the evaporator pressure. s
DEF - Low-pressure side of the system extending from the refrigerant control through the evaporator to the inlet valve of the compress

The other possibility would be "vacuum coil" -- Termium does have an entry for "aspiration" rendered as "vacuum." Here is what I find with Google:
