 French term or phrase: approche aux bouts froids I'm having a bit of trouble trying to get the precise meaning of this phrase in the following context. It is an extract relating to the performance of a compressor: "Au lieu de n’utiliser que la seule température d’aspiration de l’étage 1, on utilise plutôt une température moyenne qui tient compte de la température de l’eau à l’entrée de chaque réfrigérant, et d’une approche aux bouts froids de chaque réfrigérant de 10 degrés" Any help greatly appreciated.
