German term or phrase:Freilaufduese
This term occurs in a patent on induction heating of melting pot outlets. A typical sentence is:
"Das Verfahren kann bei Freilaufduesen-, Stopfen-,.....und Rohrverschluessen als Auslassorgane verwendet werden."
What is the English term for Freilaufduese in this context?
Explanation: Freilaufen = freewheeling.
Düsen = blast pipe/nozzle/orifice.
In this case, the orifice must be an exhaust nozzle, which is operative when freewheeling and which may be shut off (verschlossen).
