orafice in vacuum line to warm up regulator

On my 82 380sl the warm up regulator receives vacuum lines to both sides of the base. On one side there is a green and white in line device called the orafice. What is its function and how can you tell if it is working properly. On mine there appears to be free passage of vacuum. Is this correct operation? There does not seem to be any effect on operation if orafice is removed. Is this device supposed to restrict vacuum to effect operation of the warm up regulator?

Any input would be appreciated.
