English translation:purge valves, charging valves
Explanation:
According to Eurodic, 'Einfuellventil'is a 'charging valve'.
The opposite of a 'charging valve' would appear to be a 'purge valve', see e.g. http://progdev.sait.ab.ca/pwen220/123/ref-acc.htm

discharge valve / fill [filler] valve


Explanation:
That would be my suggestion. Schmitt, Kfz-Technik and Bosch Kfz-Technik are silent on the subject.

Maybe it's of some help to see what Ernst lists on the various parts:

Ventil n (Masch, Mot) / valve
Ventil n, Schieber m / valve, slide valve
Ventil n (mit Schlauch) (Luftschlauch) / valve
Ventil n (Elektronik) / valve [tube]

einfüllen, -schütten / dump, pour in, fill

abfüllen, umfüllen / decant
abfüllen, zapfen (Bier) / draw beer
abfüllen, teilweise [ent]leeren / empty vt partially

Explanation:
filling an air conditioning system is called 'charging' it, and emptying it is 'purging'.
