German term or phrase: Colagewinde
Text is installation instructions for a magnetic induction flowmeter.


Context:
Die Meßwertgeber werden im Bierkeller oder bei Thekenanstich im gekühlten Bereich des Ausschankes an eine senkrechte Wand montiert. So ist garantiert, daß das Meßrohr des Indukometers ständig mit der Flüssigkeit gefüllt ist. Die zwei Anschlußverschraubungen für die elektrischen Leitungen sollen nach rechts zeigen, da nur in einer Richtung gemessen wird.
Die Getränkeleitung wird aufgetrennt und über Tülle und Schlauchklemme, bei AFG über Colagewinde wird der Geber in die Leitung eingesetzt. Das Edelstahlrohr des Messwertgebers hat wahlweise einen Durchmesser von 6mm, 7mm oder 10mm und soll aus Gründen der Hygenie bei der Leitungsreinigung entsprechend dem Durchmesser der Getränkeleitung gewählt werden.

softdrink tap ? Coca Cola thread ?
Explanation:
No more than an educated guess... A quick search in Alta Vista and Northern Lights yielded no hits at all. However, "Cola" is a common term in German to describe Coca Cola and other similar products. From the overall context, it stands to reason that AFG = "alkoholfreie Getränke". As you probably know, Coke is often sold as a tap drink (i.e. not bottled) in German (and I assume other European) bars and/or pubs. You might have to coin your own term here.

Many thanks for your speedy reply and for setting me on the right lines. Beth's and Dan's replies were more comprehensive which is generally very useful but in this instance I didn't need that degree of detail. Thank you all very much.

bayonet connection/socket


Explanation:
Coca Cola uses these on stainless steel kegs in soft drink dispensing systems. They are cylindrical sockets with one or more L-shaped slots, the longer side parallel and the shorter side perpendicular to the axis of the socket, along which a knoblike projection on the object slides in such a way that a twist of the object when fully inserted locks it into place. Pepsi bottlers use a ball-type locking device similar to quick disconnects on compressed air systems. While I will gladly accept the points if you choose this answer, I have to give credit for the information to my husband, a German engineer, who happens to be an avid home brewer. You should be able to find the definition for a bayonet socket in a good dictionary; I found it in one by Random House. HTH, Beth.

QD beverage fitting or quick-disconnect (beverage) fitting


Explanation:
Further to Beth's answer. - The general term seems to be "quick disconnect or QD fitting". - The problem here is that the "cola" part of your term does not necessarily say which type and there is a difference. - Cokegewinde = pin lock fitting (the bayonet), however a "Pepsi"gewinde, for want of a better name, (the air hose) = ball lock fitting = general beverage fitting - See following URL: -

http://hbd.org/hollen/textdocs/which-keg - Neutral possibilities could be "QD beverage fitting" or "quick-disconnect (beverage) fitting". - Here is one reference with a similar thought: -

http://www.homebeer.com/cornelius_kegs.htm -

Here they use "quick-connect coupling"

- Other sites with more info can be found at AltaVista with the query +"quick disconnect" +soda - HTH - Dan
