Tech/Engineering - Environment & Ecology / hazardous waste processing
Dutch term or phrase: galetten
het gaat over vaten waarin gevaarlijk afval verpakt wordt

De nettogewichten van de 400 l vaten (zonder vat, zonder betonmantel, zonder metaalwand 200 l galetten), dus de actieve inhoud.

(misschien een vernederlandsing van FR galet: wiel/rol??)

waffle disks or rolls
Explanation:
This website explains how these barrels are composed and why - the 'galetten' seem to serve to retain the contents in a specific manner acting as a sort of very fine filter.

Notes to answerer
Asker: thanks for your quick reply and excellent reference... I think the right translation might be 'without the metal sheeting of the 200-l discs' (referring to 200-l drums compressed into discs which are stored inside the 400-l drums) - this seems to make sense in the context...

agree  Bryan Crumpler: "wafer disks" is probably better. the thought of waffles makes me hungry
