French term or phrase: coque cylindrique de révolution
Context:
Les moyens de chauffage 3 peuvent comprendre un dispositif propre à faire cheminer un fluide calorifique, tel que de l’eau. Par exemple, un tel dispositif peut prendre la forme d’un radiateur, ou d’une coque cylindrique de révolution, à double paroi, entourant la structure de stockage 1.

having difficulty in imagining how this cylindrical object operates.
Patents are supposed to be fairly clear in their description but unless it`s the French revolution rising up then I don`t know.
I don`t think it rotates so word "revolution" might in fact not be needed.
Any suggestions most welcome.
TIA Chris.
