Tech/Engineering / steam
German term or phrase: MD-Dampfkessel
"Zu den Wärmeerzeugungsanlagen der Gesellschaft zählen zwei HD-Dampfkessel Baujahr 1967 / 1972 (120 t/h u. 80 t/h 72 bar, 510°C, ein MD-Dampfkessel (80t/h, 31 bar, 300°C) sowie zwei MD-Dampfüberhitzer (2 x 50 t/h, 80 bar, 370°C / 510°C) im Eigentum des Zweckverbandes Abfallverwertung XXXX) aus dem Baujahr 1994."

I found that HD-Dampfkessel is a superheated-steam boiler, but don't have a clue what the MD could stand for.
