English term or phrase: Concrete amalgam retort
Hello,

I'm desperately trying to understand what this can be and can't find a picture.
I've found that "retort" can be translated as "autoclave" or "cornue", but that doesn't help me much...

Has anyone ever been there or do you have an idea?

Cornue can be used when talking to specialists. I've selected "séparateur" as this is a touristic description.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Merci Cyril, le "séparateur" me plait bien. C'est plus clair et convient mieux au contexte, qui ne s'adresse pas à des spécialistes.
