French term or phrase: canon décalorifugié
A manager in a refinery is talking about "in situ inspections" during the turnaround under way at the refinery, and says (in my text): "On a trouvé un peu de corrosion sous le canon décalorifugié..."
Is this a typo ? Should it be "le canon des calorifuges, et"... , or "le canon de calorifuge" ? Thanks for indicating what you would say (please answer only if you're sure - no educated guesses).

unisulated gun/pipe
Explanation:
It should be "décalorifugé" (heat-insulation removed)

I don't know what "canon" exactly means in the jargon of that industry, it should be a sort of straight pipe anyway
