English translation:ball-wad line cleaning, felt-ball line cleaning
Explanation:
A Propfen is a plug, stopper, or wad (must be dialect; not in any of my dicos).

Propfenschiessen appears to be term borrowed from cleaning gun barrels using a wad or patch of leather other material attached to the end of a cleaning rod.

Presumably, 'Ballpropfschiessen' means the wad is ball-shaped (perhaps a felt ball in fact), and in this context it's probably sugar lines (pipes) that are being cleaned.

\'Propfen\' must be a \'variant\' spelling of \'Pfropfen\'.
