Tech/Engineering - Engineering: Industrial / refineries/preheaters
Spanish term or phrase: base de barras, base de catarina y cadena
This is a real tough one in that it comes up about 3 times on the internet and catarina doesn't appear in any dictionary I have (unless of course it's a spelling mistake - the quality of the pdf isn't great.) Here's the paragraph (talking about air preheaters and direct fired heaters in refineries):

"Todos los mecanismos accionadores deben ser de alta precision en la tranmisión de movimiento a base de barras, no se aceptan mecanismos a base de catarina y cadena o equivalente".

From the little I've found out, it seems that perhaps catarina and cadena go together and do not express two different methods.

Any help appreciated!
