German term or phrase: Einblas- (e.g. Einblasfahrzeug, Einblasschlauch)
In the terms and conditions of a building supplies manufacturer - specifically, in the section dealing with the procedure for filling up silos with liquid building supplies on a construction site:

"Wegen der Entmischungsgefahr sind möglichst kurze Einblaslängen (d.h. möglichst wenig Einblasschläuche) anzustreben."

"Blow-in" feels far too literal, especially since most of the examples I found in my search appear to be translations, and there aren't a lot of examples of "blow-in pipes", for instance. Although there is at least one which appears to have been written by a native speaker, it does not refer to liquid:

Please help - any suggestions welcome, even if you think "blow-in" is actually the best option. It just really doesn't feel quite right. :-)
