Tech/Engineering - Electronics / Elect Eng / Work safety reporting
English term or phrase: waelz oxide water mixing tank area
Dear translators,

I am translating a text on work safety reporting. The part I am stuck on is about an electrician who is on his way to the "waelz oxide water mixing tank area" to repair something.

Here is the whole sentence:
"Previous shift’s electrician informed him about an illumination problem which is located in waelz oxide water mixing tank area."

Here is my try, but I am not sure I got it right:
"El electricista del turno anterior le había comunicado que había un problema de iluminación en el área del depósito de mezclas de agua con óxido waelz."

I have been thinking about it way too much and I don't trust my judgement anymore, so I thought I'd ask your opinion.

Thank you very much in advance!
