English term or phrase: element end face
Original text:
The axial end faces of the element are shaped flat and oriented perpendicular to the axis of the filter element. They are closed for passage of oil by closure elements, which are of matching flattened shape. Such closure elements, in principle come loose, and are pressed against the respective "element end face".

Por la interpretación técnica, quemando alguna neurona, he llegado a la conclusión de que el "element" es un filtro de aceite.

Estamos frente a otra trad de trad.
Hasta podría ser una trad de trad de trad, hay que pelearla.

La redacción es espantosamente poco clara y entreverada. Mis condolencias.

No tiene necesariamente que ser aceite, puede ser un elemento de filtro de diálisis, o un cartucho filtrante, o un cartucho captor, o un cartucho filtrante.
Definitivamente el elemento es alguna de esas cosas.
