To Science451,
thank you very much for yr. answer. However in the meanswhile I deepened the meaning of the term by myself:
the turndown being the ratio between the maximum and minimun design flow rate is a fixed ratio, which does not really entails measurement while rangeability does. The two terms are often misused and interchanged in technical reports. Therefore I'm not completely satisfied with the translation "portata rilevabile" for turndown, but I do thank You because I think it is a very difficult term.
