This is a vortex diode or Zobel diode, apply flow in one direction and it will pass fine(center port to side port), apply flow in another(side port to center port) and a vortex will be formed in the chamber increasing resistance to flow.

Bolt both plates together using M5 bolts or print as one piece. Connect to other fluidic elements using 5/16" tubing.
