German term or phrase: Ausblasung
Nach Besichtigung der Anlage wurde beschlossen, dass man die größte Staubquelle:
- Ausschleusung des mit Metallen verunreinigten Holzes durch Ausblasung -
durch Umbau in eine Ausschleusung des mit Metallen verunreinigten Holzes durch Klappe in einen Dump verwandelt.

(Es geht um den Umbau einer Recyclinganlage in einem Holzbetrieb - ich hoffe, Ihr könnt mir trotz des recht komplizierten Satzaufbaus helfen ;-))

blowing out
Explanation:
'Ausblasen' means literally to blow something out of somewhere using air (or air being forced out of a space or container). Although you could use a translation such as 'expulsion using forced air' in a highly formal context, my inclination would be to reword the phrase along the lines of 'expelling the wood (sawdust) using a blower'.
