Engineering (general) / fireplace technology
German term or phrase: Gluthalten / Gluthaltung
This is when the fire is banked down to embers. I cannot for the life of me think of an equivalent in English.

Fortheizen nach Gluthalten

Ein gewisses Ascheniveau sorgt vorteilhaft für eine gestreckte Gluthaltung, sowie für einen gründlichen Abbrand der Holzkohle bis zur Feinasche.

IMO you'll have to reword this a bit. English simply doesn't allow nouns to be formed with the same abandon as German.
