Tech/Engineering - Construction / Civil Engineering / Accidents in the workplace
French term or phrase: boîte d'échangeur
This appears in the transcription of a documentary about accidents in the workplace.

'On faisait un remontage de boite d'échangeur'.

I imagine that they might be referring to a junction box but I can't seem to find this term translated as such anywhere.

Many thanks!

heat exchanger (unit)
Explanation:
Difficult without more context, but it could well be a heat exchanger. The works are usually hidden in a housing, forming a heat exchanger or heat exchanger unit. They can be of any size and can cause accidents.
