German to English translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering - Automotive / Cars & Trucks / Diesel engines, catalytic converters, heat exchangers
German term or phrase:Vorkopf
Installation of a catalytic converter for a stationary diesel engine.
"Auch Abhängungen sind möglich. Ist das Katalysatorgehäuse mittels einer Flanschverbindung im Vorkopf eines Wärmetauschers oder eines Schalldämpfers eingebaut, muss der Vorkopf separat mittels eines Schiebesitzes abgestützt werden."
Explanation: is always a safe generic translation for these types of terminology, though there may be a narrower definition. If it really matters, I either would go to a garage and check with a mechanic or the library, where answers are sometimes easier to come by through technical literature than the net.
