Explanation:
Depends on the kind of filtration plant.
For liquid filtration:
a) with sandfilter, strainer, or some other kind of backwashable filter: \"Rückspülleitung\" or \"Rückspülauslass\" (these filters are backwashed periodically to clean them and take out the stuff they removed from the liquid. Other common english term is bacwash piping.
b) with crossflow filtration plants, such as ultrafiltration, nanofiltration, reverse osmosis or crossflow microfiltration: \"Konzentratleitung\" (the more common english term in this case is concentrate piping)

Air filtration:
a) with filter media \"Abblaserohr/leitung\", \"Abreinigungsrohr/leitung\", \"Rückblaserohr/leitung\"
b) electrostatic filters
\"Abreinigungsleitung\" or \"Spülleitung\"

Hope this helps.
