three-litre raised
Explanation:
three-litre raised - see context in Explanation and this qustion's Discussion.

As per the question's discussion.

This is a 'three-litre raised sprue-conveyor-belt'. I suggest maintaining the hypens to avoid ambiguities. They want a Plexiglas®* safety barrier installed behind it to protect from accidents with the 'sprue' as it travels on the belt.

There are different ways to translate materozze, but after our discussions it became clear it was 'sprue' - not other translations such as 'feedhead' or 'riser.'

[Sprue is liquified material that usually travels to a mold - see Web reference 1.]

[I had a better answer typed with links to photos - but it got cancelled somehow. But this explanation, plus the discussion should help.]

*Side note

Plexiglas® or any of its derivatives, should be spelled with one 's' - first letter in caps and (legally in many countries) with the registered trademark symbol (ALT 0174).
