German term or phrase: auf der Maschinen- und Koksseite angeordnete Koksofentüren
I have problems with VDI guideline 4285 (Determination of diffusive emissions by measurements) again. I am translating from the English translation, and the English translation sounds strange.

The phrase has been translated as "coke-oven doors arranged on the side of the machine and of the coke"

The discussion is about emptying of coke ovens.

--- The German paragraph is: ---

Der Verkokungsvorgang ist nach einer Garungszeit
von etwa 14 h bis 30 h (je nach Koksofenabmessungen
und Temperaturbedingungen) abgeschlossen.
Nach dieser Zeit werden die auf der Maschinen- und
Koksseite angeordneten Koksofentüren abgezogen
und der heiße Koks mit einer Temperatur von etwa
1100 °C mittels einer Druckmaschine aus dem Koksofen
in den Löschwagen gedrückt. Der heiße Koks
wird entweder unter einem Löschturm mit Wasser
gelöscht oder einer Kokstrockenkühlanlage zugeführt,
in der die Wärme zur Energieerzeugung genutzt
wird. Der erzeugte Koks wird anschließend gebrochen
und klassiert.

--- The English paragraph is: ---

The carbonization process is finished after a period of
about 14 h to 30 h (depending on the dimensions of
the coke oven and on the temperature conditions).
After this time, the coke-oven doors arranged on the
side of the machine and of the coke are opened, and at
a temperature of about 1100 °C, the hot coke is
pressed, by means of a pressing machine, from the
coke oven into the dousing car. The hot coke is either
doused with water under a dousing tower, or it is
passed to a coke dry-cooling plant whose heat is used
for the generation of energy. After that, the produced
coke is broken and graded.

coke side doors / push side doors
Explanation:
Very clear definitions in this document.

Since the oven has two sides, I think it's reasonable to assume that the German "Maschinenseite" must be the same as the EPA's "push side."
