Spanish term or phrase: cabezal (in the sentences below)
I've been translating "cabezal" as header, but in these sentences it doesn't seem to fit. Any ideas? Thanks!

"Hacia el Norte el ***cabezal ***de vapor de alta presión continua, dando vuelta a la altura de la Fraccionadora I, para tomar el rack Este-Oeste que pasa a un costado de la caldera de media presión"

"Con una derivación del ***cabezal*** de vapor de alta presión, este se prolonga hacia el Sur, por el rack que pasa a un lado de la planta criogénica"

Asker: To me it sounds like the pipe itself. What do you mean by bowl in this context?

It makes sense because "Head" also means "Cabezal"

Asker: Did you read the sentences? I can't see how that makes sense in the context.


Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  Ronald van der Linden: I have no idea, just want to help. I´m guessing that a steam header is a device, part of a machine, etc. But the sentences mention movement of the ´cabeza al fapor´. Maybe the first part of the steam flowing through´ = head

  -> Thanks, Ronald! my first idea was steam head
