French term or phrase: Raccord union double cloison
Taken from a list of parts from a hydraulic circuit on an agricultural fertilizer spreader. It's mainly the "double cloison" bit that I'm having trouble with. The items either side of it in the list are both hydraulic pipes. Sorry, but I don't have any more context, which I guess might help :-(

Explanation:
I don't know what they mean by the 'double cloison' bit, unless it means it is designed to pass through 2 thicknesses of bulkhead.

But we do often talk about 'bulkhead fittings' (particularly in electrical/electronic, but also in plumbing etc.)

Maybe this will at least help to set the ball rolling!

agree  xxxBourth: "Raccord union double" - double ended female (say) fitting, fixed through a bulkhead, so male couplings can attach each side?

  -> Thanks, Alex! Hadn't been looking at it that way myself, but yes, I think you may have it there!
