Spanish translation:Colector de drenaje
Explanation:
La válvula de drenaje del colector (o sumidero)se mantiene abierta para permitir suficiente alivio (o drenaje)para eliminar la formación de incrustaciones en el colector. INo me gusta el original del inglés: To eliminate scaling... Pareciera que es mejor decir: avoid the scaling.. (evitar las incrustaciones). O eliminar la posibilidad de formación de incrustaciones. Espero que sea de ayuda.

sumidor, colector, cárcamo


Explanation:
There was no mention of a pump, so I assume there is none. A sump for a storage tank is a "sumidor", and a sump for collecting waste from a paved area is a "colector". If there is a pump, the usual industrial term used by PEMEX is "cárcamo".

Good Luck
