German term or phrase: Wendekammer
sie befindet sich in einem Kessel...
Tadej Gregorcic
English translation:reversing chamber
Explanation:
On the German-language side, >>Wendekammer<< in the context of boilers is referenced in text and/or drawings and appears to denote the enclosed space in which flue gases are reversed between passes in multipass boilers. --

In English-language URLs, the corresponding term >>reversing chamber<< is used in several URLs, though one might have expected it to be more common, considering the widespread use of boilers:
>>Strong Light-weight Reversing Chamber. -- Further savings result from the design of the hot gas reversing chamber in the Series E. This lightweight chamber is vacuum formed of material proven to be virtually maintenance-free through many years of use under conditions more demanding than those imposed here. Thick but lightweight and resilient, it is an ideal insulator: it keeps the intense heat of combustion in the boiler while easily withstanding the stresses of shipping and thermal cycling. Thus it is immune to the mechanical and thermal damage which can be so expensive to remedy in the massive solid-cast reversing chambers found in some boilers. When required, one man can quickly remove the Series E chamber for inspection and just as quickly reinstall it. <<

>>The full wetback design permits high heat absorption in the reversing chamber rather than reflecting it back to the rear tube ends as is the case in the "dry back" boiler which results in the need to weld the rear tube ends. Eliminates the need for extensive brick and refractory work in the rear of the boiler and the periodic replacement.<<

A closely related if not synonymous term appears to be >> refractory baffles<< as in:
>>Three-pass wet back design eliminates refractory baffles between flue gas passes.<<

reversing chamber


Explanation:
Sounds like patentese so you will need to make up your own term based on more context about the function of the chamber. Something like "reversing chamber," "turning chamber," "conversion chamber," or "changing chamber" depending on what it does!
