 Spanish term or phrase: punto de picaje This is taken from a comment on a document about "draining time for pipe and vessels". "No vemos como han llegado a una velocidad de vaciado de 5m/s. Asumiendo una longitud equivalente de 50 m, considerando que en el punto de picaje con la línea de 36" la presión corresponde a la altura estática desde los tanques (aproximadamente 60 m), y con un líquido con las propiedades de la corriente 33 del caso 1 de balance en revisión 2, la velocidad que se alcanzará es de 10.7 m/s."

 equilibrium height or peak Explanation:We experimentally found the equilibrium height by letting the system run on its own for four minutes, such that the equilibrium height was reached, then determined how long it took the water column to drain. From that the experimental equilibrium height could be determined (Figure 12). The experimental height of the water column was found to be 53.96 inches.--------------------------------------------------Note added at 4 hrs 17 mins (2004-12-03 13:23:36 GMT)--------------------------------------------------or point- of course

 The suggestion of the client was "connection point" - however, I guess that is more general than equilibrium point. Thanks a lot...3 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
