English term or phrase: drive
There was powder in the primary cyclone. I don’t know why it wasn’t in the drive.

On parle ici d'une installation dans une laiterie. Je n'arrive pas à trouver le terme exact pour "drive"

I have a felling that it refers to a specific part of the equipment, this part being placed before the so-called cyclone hence the question.

Numerous words can apply : commande, transmission, entraînement, propulsion, prise, conducteur

I would question the client to find out exactly what and where this part is.

voici ce que j\'ai trouvé comme définition générale pour drive : commande - transmission - entraînement - propulsion - prise - conducteur

Le problème est qu\'il y a ensuite une quarantaine de **drive quelque chose** qui indique des noms de pièce mécanique très spécifique.

Désolée mais je ne vois pas ce que je peux faire de plus.
