cooling register / swivel flap
Explanation:
Pieces of dry ice are inserted into a smoke machine through a swivel flap/hatch, where they get sprayed with water, which in return produces the show "smoke". To prevent "smoke" from coming out where it's not supposed to, the flap/hatch needs to slide/swivel smoothely, otherwise it would stay open.

disagree  Roland Grefer: this is about smoke machines, thus most likely refering to the hatch for the dry ice feed
