Tech/Engineering - Electronics / Elect Eng / Humidity Measurement system
French term or phrase: Casque de la trémie
The above phrase was taken from the text below found in a manual for a humidity measurement system - for measuring the humidity level in aggregates - sand, gravel etc.

I have a feeling that it might mean the "hopper gate valve/flow control gate" or "hopper flap". If anyone has any suggestions however they will be welcomed. TIA:)

Mesure dynamique/statique:

Il est possible de choisir deux modes de mesure, la mesure statique et la mesure dynamique.

En mode statique, le boîtier indicateur affiche instantanément la valeur d’humidité mesurée par les quatre sondes micro-ondes.

En mode dynamique, pendant l’ouverture du casque de la trémie, le boîtier indicateur effectue 20 mesures par seconde, et affiche sur l’écran la moyenne des mesures réalisées depuis le début de la pesée.

La moyenne alors prise en compte pour la pesée est la moyenne de la gâchée d’avant.

L’affichage de la moyenne ainsi que les sorties analogiques vers l’automatisme sont rafraîchies à chaque seconde.

Quand le casque se referme, la moyenne reste affichée sur l’écran et sur la sortie analogique.

Pendant l’ouverture du casque, la densité de l’agrégat change, et il peut être nécessaire de rajouter un coefficient à la valeur mesurée.

hopper lid/hopper hood

Isn't it just a lid? "hopper lid" gets more relevant googles than "hopper flap", if that helps. "hopper hood" gets a couple of relevant hits.
