Tech/Engineering - Engineering (general) / smoke aspirating systems
German term or phrase: Windkanaleinsatz
From a product list of accessories for a smoke aspirating system.

Windkanaleinsatz: Zum Einsatz an Orten mit hoher Luftgeschwindigkeit und starker Rauchverdünnung.

This "Windkanaleinsatz" is used to take a sample of air to examine for its smoke concentration and is used in locations where there is fast flowing air (i.e. in air conditioning / ventilation units).

I think that anything involving "wind tunnel" would, however, be inappropriate.

I agree on the insert - although here we're just talking about a channel/duct where air moves quickly (e.g. in aircon) rather than a windtunnel. Thanks nonetheless.
