Tech/Engineering - Construction / Civil Engineering / Thermisches Kraftwerk/Baustellenbericht
German term or phrase: Klappe
Technologischer Anlagenteil:

Montage einzelner Pumpen, **Klappen** und Ventile (eingeschränkte Baufreiheit für Montage und Verkabelung des Feldes wegen fehlender Bühnen sowie fehlender Feldgeräte, Ventile, **Klappen**, Not-Ausschalter und Black-Boxen).

I'm considering translating "Klappe" with "damper" in this particular context.

A damper is a movable plate that regulates the draft in a chimney.

Thermal power plant+dampers+valves+pumps has 357 google hits. "Flap" doesn't seem to fit here: http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/flap

Can any expert confirm this or suggest another translation? Thank you.

gate
Explanation:
Klappen und Ventile = gates and valves ist eine geradezu "klassische" Begriffskombination in Verbindung mit Pumpen.

"Provision would be made for arresting the piston assembly at the end of the up and the down stroke with controls to open and close the ***gates and valves*** in the operation of the prime mover."

Vielen Dank, Steffen. Der Kunde hat "gate" akzeptiert, und folgender Satz beweist. m. E., dass dein vermuteter Kontext stimmt: "In den Rohrleitungen und an den Pumpen fehlen viele Feldgeräte, Ventile, Klappen sowie mechanische Halterungen an den Rohrleitungen." :-)
