French term or phrase: entartrage du faisceau
Maintenance manual for a steel manufacturer:

In a section dealing with exchangers:

Après avoir vérifié que les conditions de la vapeur d'alimentation sont dans les normes (T°, Q), au poste opérateur, vérifier le bon fonctionnement de l'échangeur en s'assurant que la température de consigne en sortie de l'appareil est dans la limite des tolérances. Des chutes sensibles de la température peuvent être dues à des causes diverses: perte de rendement de l'appareil causée par l'entartrage du faisceau, dysfonctionnement de la sonde thermique, de la vanne de température, etc.

Explanation:
You may omit "tube" if you wish.

--------------------------------------------------

Due to less-than-perfect water treatment, scaling will occur in shell-and-tube heat exchangers, thus lowering the heat transferred.

Note: sometimes scaling is quite dramatic.

  -> years at it....low output temps point to scaling or a bad steam trap
