German term or phrase: Entlüftungsschlauch
Einpressen der Dichtmasse in die Manschette mittels Preßluftzylinder. Sobald die Dichtmasse den Entlüftungsschlauch blasenfrei füllt, wird dieser geschlossen und die Dichtmasse gegen den Gasdruck in die undichte Verbindung hineingepresst. Danach wird der Schlauch verschlossen, so daß die Dichtmasse unter Druck aushartet.
This a description of the keyhole process - a method of fixing leaky joints on gas pipes.
I presume that the Entlüftungsschlauch is where air is removed before the sealing compound is inserted into the leaky joint. However, I don't know what to call it. I know Ernst gives deairing for Entlüftung and I have thought of deaeration and deventilation too but I cannot find any of them in my big English dictionary and although I have seen certain websites with versions of deaeration, I think these are mostly American and that deaeration must be in American English usage only.

deaeration, bleeding, degassing


Explanation:
Eurodicatom gives both for Entlueftung - deaeration would seem appropriate in your context, and of course Slauch is hose or flexible pipe.

bleeding, bleed hose, bleed valve


Explanation:
Bleeding is the usual word on this side of the Atlantic for removing air from something. ( I've never 'deairated' anything before.) If the Entlüftungsschlauch can be closed off, I would probably call it a bleed valve. see below for sites in the UK

ventilation hose or exhaust hose


Explanation:
ventilation hose if this hose is used to provide air to a certain part and exhaust hose if air or fumes are supposed to be emitted from a certain area

air removal tube. drain tube


Explanation:
1) air removal tube
- was what first came to mind. Except for the "tube" part, this was confirmed by the example below.

2) drain tube
is the only Eurodicautom suggestion for Entlüftungsschlauch - and there was no definition or description - but note that it is suggested for the exact German term.

Besides, it confirms "tube"

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

Example:
Direct Contact Jet Condenser and Air Removal Equipment
The circulating water circuit is entirely closed, and boiler feed quality water as coolant is used to enable the application of direct contact jet condenser, where coolant and condensing steam directly encounter. Direct contact jet condensers offer numerous advantages over conventional surface condensers:

For a given cooling tower rating, with the use of the jet condenser, a better vacuum can be obtained than with a surface condenser. This is due to the fact that while condensing and mixing with the coolant, the temperature of condensing steam sinks to warm cooling water temperature. Furthermore, because of its simpler construction, the D.C. jet condenser's reliability is much higher and its maintenance costs lower than those of the surface condenser.

The shell of the condenser is a fabricated steel structure with appropriate stiffening. The cooling water, distributed by headers (so called „water boxes“) is injected through spray nozzles into the condenser space. By these nozzles and their impact plates, thin water films are formed, which ensure favourable heat transfer and deaeration, while the water side friction loss between condenser inlet and outlet is only about 3 m W.G. For cooling of the steam/air mixture to be extracted by the evacuation system, a perforated, cascade tray system is installed at the bottom of the water boxes. The lower part of the condenser is a hot-well (with condensate collection function as well), in which excess water quantity capable of filling an entire cooling sector is stored. The condenser body shall be welded to a connecting piece which is then connected to the turbine stub by an expansion joint. Accordingly, the condenser is supported by sliding support.

air bleed hose


Explanation:
Since 'bleed hose' has already been proposed, I'm not claiming any credit for the answer, but I can explain why it is correct and what this all means. Your text describes how the sealant (Dichtmasse) is forced into the sleeve until it flows out of the air bleed hose with no bubbles. The air bleed hose will presumably be at the top of the sleeve and the sealant injection point near the bottom, so when no more bubbles appear in the bleed hose with the escaping (excess) sealant, there is no more air inside the sleeve. This is presumably important because the objective is to force the sealant into the fitting against the pressure of the gas inside the pipe, and air is compressible, so you don't want to have any left inside the sleeve.
'Bleed' is the term used for removing air from a hydraulic system (such as a brake system) in a similar manner, and it surely would be used here as well.
