Drain trap (Sifón);
Explanation:
En el contexto de oleoductos y conductos de tuberías, en español se habla de sifón para los elementos que se sitúan a lo largo del oleoducto permitiendo el paso del gas, sin afectar al flujo de líquido. Depósito de purgas puede ser un sifón para el drenaje de gases (Drain trap), o puede ser un desagüe de líquidos (Drainage tank). Sin más detalles no puedo ser más explícita.
