German term or phrase: hydraulische Weiche
From http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hydraulische_Weiche :

Eine hydraulische Weiche wird in Heizungsanlagen eingesetzt, um den Heizkreis und den Verbraucherkreis hydraulisch voneinander zu entkoppeln.
[...]
Die hydraulische Weiche ist nichts anderes als eine senkrecht angeordnete Rohrleitung mit großem Innendurchmesser und somit kleinem Druckverlust, die Vorlauf und Rücklauf der Heizungsanlage verbindet.

All fairly clear. Unfortunately I can't find any corresponding standard term in English. Does anyone know what this is called - or if it even exists as a standard feature of heating systems in English-speaking countries??

Asker: Those entries in the LEO archive were unfortunately based on a poor translation from German (which you find if you follow the link in the oldest entry).

bypass


Explanation:
This particular 'device' seems to me just a bypass (line) and it's use should be quite universal to central heating systems.

Notes to answerer
Asker: "bypass" seems to be much too general, whereas a "hydraulische Weiche" is a specific kind of bypass device.
