plummet or float


Explanation:
It's a very "specific" definition, but I hope it can help you. Of course, more context would make things much easier.
Anyway, according to McGraw Hill-Zanichelli:
plummet (ing.): pescante di rotametro: a loose-fitting metal plug in a tapered rotameter which moves upward (or downward) with an increase (or decrease) in fluid flow rate upward through the tube. AKA float.

lift pipe


Explanation:
Hello
The lack of context is severe I'm afraid, but here's one possibility: a "lift pipe" is the inlet line on a pump, i.e the line that sucks liquid from a tank or similar.
