EuroDicAutom also gives these terms, in an environmental context.

Unknown CM (= )

English Term plug-flow reactor
Definition A reactor,often tubular in form,in which the substrate passes through an essentially unmixed system which may consist of an unstirred liquid phase.The substrates enter the column at one end and the products emerge in the effluent at the other.
Reference Coombs
Spanish Term fermentador de flujo de pistón(1);
fermentador de flujo de tapón(2)

There are quite a few documents (if you search in Google) dealing with "flujo de pistón" in the context of "aguas residuales" (the bottom link is one of them), so you might want to look at some of them and see if they are similar to your overall context. (There are only a few using the other term.)

Hope it helps.

I picked this one because the references talks of "effluent", so apparently it is used in a context of wastewater treatment. Thanks.
