German term or phrase: URGENT!! Buehne; Nachkuehlung; Gesamtrahmen; Produktionshallen
Text about a cooling system for dairy products.
1) Buehne: Herr X diskutierte mit Herr Y die Aufstellung der noetigen Prozesstechnik auf einer Buehne.
2) Nachkuehlung
3) Gesamtrahmen: Eine Sicherheit von etwa 20% muss mit einem Gesamtrahmen von X Mio. Euros gerechnet werden.
4) Producktionshallen: die Temperatur in den Producktionshallen soll etwa 24 bis 25°C nicht uebersteigen.
I hope you can help me with these terms.

platform/skid frame; cool storage; total volume/investment (??); production areas/facilities/rooms;
Explanation:
platform/skid frame; cool storage; total volume/investment (??); production areas/facilities/rooms;

(1) _Bühne_ presumably refers to a compact installation on a platform (Ernst) or perhaps skid frame, as in >> We incorporate the raw product balance tank, pumps, filters, hot water generation, heat exchangers, holding tube, electrical and electronic control cabinet all on a compact skid frame.<< http://www.dairynz.co.nz/deps/DEPS_index.html
(2) _Nachkühlung_ probably refers to cool storage as opposed to the actual chilling process, as explained in
http://www.chillmaster.com.au/Chillmaster/chillmaster.html
(3) I’m not sure whether _Gesamtrahmen_ refers to a total volume (as of sales) or perhaps investment, possibly because I don’t understand the meaning of _Sicherheit_ in this context (collateral?). Any more context on that?
(4) _Produktionshallen_ could translate as production areas/facilities/rooms, as the term “hall(s)” is relatively uncommon in such a context in English.

platform; cooling; (rewrite); production halls


Explanation:
1. Buehne is almost always some sort of platform or stage, this time the floor, presumably built up, where the machines will be put.
2. Cooling after something. Sounds like cooling after the warm cows!
3.Gesamtrahmen means the money for the investment, total estimated cost. A Sicherheit is the contingency sum, to take care of possible overruns in building and set-up costs."A contingency of 20% must be included when the investment totals X million Euros."
4.Production area or hall would be where some process is going on, probably the milking. A glorified industrial-sounding word for barn.

Best wishes, it can be a bit nervewracking when you're at a loss for words. Nancy
