Ah sarcasm. The bane of many, yet a breath of fresh air to others.

If you worked refrigeration, you would know the output of the compressor is the HOT side. That frosty line is the compressor inlet. The frozen object is most likely the suction throttle valve. It is used to control the evaporator pressure to prevent freezing the water on the air coil or heat exchanger on a chilled water system. This is why the area above it is not frozen. The pressure drop on the valve is why the inlet line is frosted.

It is basically a vacuum pressure regulator to maintain the evaporator pressure and thus temperature of the boiling refrigerant.

If you check the rating plate, you will find this unit is in the 100 ton size.
1 ton of refrigeration is 12,000 BTU.

im not a refrigerator mechanic i just work there every friday for a school thing, most of the time just take stuff apart and clean them, figure it would cool on the output, always learning new things, its funny the ice isn't really cold like the one out of my freezer. your hand wouldn't go numb if you held it there.

the refridgerent becomes cold when given a chance to expand
hence the low pressure side is frozen

I forget the history of the term ton. You should be able to find it with a Google search. The important part is 12,000 BTU/Hr of heat removal capacity = 1 Ton of refrigeration capacity.
