German term or phrase: Brennwertgerät (Gas-Brennwertgerät)
Seems to be a kind of water heating appliance which reuses the calorific value of the heat. Don't ask me how! The context does not explain anything.
Unfortunately.

Brennwerttechnik = condensing boiler technology (a heating technology)

Explanation:
Context would still be useful even if it doesnt explain anything. "Gas-Brennwert is, as you stated, the calorific value of the gas, but this doesnt really fit with "Gerät" like you have it here. Are you sure it isnt "Messgerät"?

calorimeter


Explanation:
It sounds as though it could be a device for measuring the calorific (or energy) content of analysed samples e.g. foodstuffs. Basically it measures the energy given off by burning the sample. Brennwert = calorific value expressed in KCal/kg as used to declare the energy content of food.

condensing gas boiler


Explanation:
A "Brennwertgerät" is a type of gas boiler used to run (at least) domestic central heating and hot water systems. They are particularly efficient because they recapture the heat from the waste gases leaving the boiler. Most of the major manufacturers (Vaillant, Benraad...) produce one.
