English term or phrase: CHUTE SWITCH (URGENTE!)
Para una traducción que debe ser enviada en una hora, orientada al mercado mexicano.
El texto pertenece al área minera y es sobre "Conveyor Belts" (Correas transportadoras).

"Since XXXXX Conveyors are commonly used for handling moist and sticky materials it is not uncommon to find that a discharge chute gets plugged. The results of such a condition can be disastrous, as the conveyor housing will quickly fill full of material and jam the entire system. Regular inspection of the discharge chute, or installation of a plugged chute switch will go a long way toward eliminating such an unfortunate occurrence".

GRACIAS!

interruptor de canaleta


Explanation:
I believe they are talking about installing a cut-off switch that will activate when material jams and the chute overfills.

Hope this helps.
