Dutch term or phrase: voorzetgasgroep
"In de gasleidingen van de voorzetgasgroepen, door middel van een passtuk met flenzen, voldoende ruimte reserveren voor het aanbrengen van een gasmeter ten behoeve van debietmetingen."
For which my current translation is:
"In the gas pipes of the [voorzetgasgroepen], sufficient room should be reserved, using a flanged fitting, for the attachment of a gas meter for flow measurement."

English translation:preceding gas units
Explanation:
This looks difficult.
Cannot find anytyhing ibn the dictionaries or Google.
voorzetten = place ahead -> preceding
gasgroepen -> gaseenheden -> gas units
(? this could be anything. I chose gas units since it is broad enough to include any preceding device).

"Using a flanged fitting, sufficient room should be reserved in the gas pipes of the preceding gas units, for the attachment of a gas meter for flow measurement."

Thanks for your contribution. Your reasoning is logical, and I will probably use it in the translation. However, I'm still hoping that a Dutch gas engineer will be able to tell me exactly how these things work (a precise explanation in Dutch, even without a translation, would be most helpful, because then I could explain it to an English gas engineer and get the exact term).
