Russian term or phrase: электротен
Для исключения замерзания воды в баках, на зимний период предусмотрен пологрев воды электротенами.

Well, obviuosly it's an electric heater. I get the электро- part, but what's the -тен about?

"Что такое электротен, я не понял, но по уважительному тону мужиков догадываюсь, что какое-то последнее слово техники."

Thanks!
