I was also surprised that there's not only pickling peppers, but according to Ernst, it is a mordent process for metals. These URLs explain it.

Best wishes, Nancy

It really depends on the context:

Gelbbrennanlage = brass dipping plant

this would mean

Gelbrenntechnik = brass dipping technology

Hope this helps !!
