English translation:half-pipe coil or limpet coil
Explanation:
This is a heating coil fastened (welded or brazed) to the outside of a tank or other vessel. The cross-section of the fluid channel is semicircular, thus half-pipe. Ref 1 (German) has a good illustration, and description, and ref 2 (English) offers both 'half-pipe' and 'limpet'.

Explanation:
