English term or phrase: downstream equipment conditons/grade switching con
Could you please help me with the above mentioned terms? Context:

Advanced control not only eliminates that problem, but offers capabilites that in themselves can make the operation more stable. Based on teh estimated product properties, an MPCC manipulates the reactor and downstream equipment conditions to maintain the desired product-quality values.

But with advanced grade-switching control, whenever production personnel select a new master recipe, the system selectively calls up teh appropriate sub-recipes and transition instructions for different sections of the plant.

- self validating processes????? bzw. self-validation (SEVA)???

Betriebszustand der nachgeschalteten Geräte (Maschinen, Apparate, Anlagen, Anlagenteile)

Geräte implies relatively small equipment. Maschinen and Apparate implies equipment with moving parts, e.g. pumps, stirrers. Anlagen implies either large plants or equipment without moving parts (well, some valves would be allowed), e.g. distillation columns, gravity separators...
Grade-switching control could mean switching on a graded scale, in which case it schould be translated with something like abgestufte Steuerung or abgestufte Schaltung. Given the context provided, it could also imply switching between two different products, or rather, two different grades (qualities) of the same product (i.e. the control unit has to call the new recepies for the new product) in this case I would recommend translating "Aber mit fortschrittlicher (oder "erweiterter", wenn es um ein zusätzlich erhältliches Steuerprogramm geht) Steuerung des Umschaltvorgangs zwischen verschiedenen Produktqualitäten..."
Self-validation: Selbstprüfung, Selbstfunktionstest
