German term or phrase: Ablaßnippel
This is something that is used to direct fluid leaking from a pipe away. I found outlet for Ablaß and nipple for nipple in connection with pipes but I'm not sure whether I can just put the two together.

English translation:outlet nipple
Explanation:
You can't use "drain" if the fluid in question is a gas or a supercritical fluid. A nipple is a short piece of pipe, and there seems no reason not to use it here.

drain/outlet fitting


Explanation:
The collars or whatever are probably corrosion resistant in accordance with some standard. They have drain/outlet fittings every so often to get rid of the horrible stuff if it should leak out of the piping system. It would be helpful to know if your fluid is a liquid or gas.
