 French term or phrase: trémie des passants Bonsoir, J'effectue cette traduction des machines ci-dessus, et je rencontre jusqu'à alors le terme 'passants', dans ce contexte, qui m'est tout à fait inconnu: "Mettre en place la trémie supérieure des passants." "Mettre en place la trémie des passants inférieure." "Mettre en place la trémie des passants inférieure." Merci par avance pour votre assistance. Richard

 English translation:hopper of the passing fraction Explanation:Passants is the material passing (through) a sieve or screen as part of the process of grading aggregate for example. Not sure out of context what they mean by "lower" and "upper", but a trémie is a hopper, either one collecting the material that falls through the screen (lower hopper) or one feeding the material onto the screen (upper hopper). Trémie supérieure des passants seems like a misnomer since the passants will be BELOW the screen. Of course as part of a multiscreen process, passants on a large-aperture sieve will be the feed material for finer screen, so maybe that's what they are getting at.

hopper of the passing fraction

Explanation:
Passants is the material passing (through) a sieve or screen as part of the process of grading aggregate for example.

Not sure out of context what they mean by "lower" and "upper", but a trémie is a hopper, either one collecting the material that falls through the screen (lower hopper) or one feeding the material onto the screen (upper hopper).

Trémie supérieure des passants seems like a misnomer since the passants will be BELOW the screen. Of course as part of a multiscreen process, passants on a large-aperture sieve will be the feed material for finer screen, so maybe that's what they are getting at.

Undersize hopper

Explanation:
In mining and other types of processing, material sent to a screen (or a trommel, which is a variety of screen) either passes over the holes (oversize) or through them (undersize). You can also refer to the coarse and fine fractions, the fines....

items hopper

Explanation:
I don't quite know what items are being processed/sorted/recycled, but "les passants" are literally the items passing along the conveyor/production line/chute.

Or, having just noticed the reference to trommel above, passing through as well as along... Of course, an inclined perforated drum does both, sometimes with different diameter holes to separate differently sized parts
