Tech/Engineering - Chemistry; Chem Sci/Eng / part of evaporator in chem lab
French term or phrase: doigt de gant
This is the description of the part of the "panoplie évaporateur":

"le bas, le **doigt de gant de la sonde de température**, les parois du S240, la plaque supérieure de l’échangeur, ainsi que la liaison supérieure entre l’échangeur et le séparateur".

Could you say "temperature sensor pocket"? Suggestions?
