Wenske, Chemical DSictionary gives the following translations:
let-down gas = Entspannungsgas
let-down vessel = Entspannungsgefäss

So I think "letdowns" is just a short form of "let-down gases". These are gases that are introduced in a chemical reaction to relieve pressure by reducing the reaction.
