Tech/Engineering - Nuclear Eng/Sci / piping
French term or phrase: anti-dégardage
"entonnoirs pour siphons de sol anti-dégardage"
I cannot find a single reference to this term "dégardage", or anti-. I've translated it as "anti-flood" floor drains - but it's a bit of a guess. It relates to piping for non-contaminated waste water in nuclear power stations...

English translation:anti-siphon(ing)
Explanation:
Your siphon of course being a floor drain or trap or something of that ilk, so there is no problem with repetition as there is in the French.

I assume the garde of dégardage refers to the "guard" or "protection" or "shield" provided by the water retained in the trap that prevents nauseous odours rising from the drains.

anti-siphon trap A waste trap which resists unsealing, usually by having a deep seal of water in it, achieved by having a lower dip. In the single-stack system of internal pipework these traps may save the expense of branch vents.

Thank you! Because the translation was an urgent part of a bigger job, and I commented that I was unsure of this term, I feel confident now that I can ask the client whether anti-siphoning would be correct. I shall report back!
