Dutch term or phrase: stromende aftakkingen
'Bij verwarmingslichamen fittingen met stromende aftakkingen toepassen, voor zover zulks de ontluchting niet belemmert'.

English translation:Y branches
Explanation:
This is a bit of a guess (no Dutch refs or Google hits). A 'stromende aftakking' woudl be a free-flowing branch, which is achieved by using angled branch fittings instead of perpendicular fittings. Plumbers call such fittings 'Y branches' (see ref).
The ''voor zofer...' phrase means that such fittings should not be used where they create places where air could be trapped in the sustem.
