Spanish term or phrase: horquilla
This is from the operating manual for a machine that recycles plastic into pellets (a pelletiser). The machine has a filter that the melted plastic is run through and the filter has to be changed regularly using the "filter changer".

La temperatura del agua debe ser tal que la temperatura en la *horquilla* del cambiador de filtros no exceda de los 65 ºC

I am aware of a few meanings for "horquilla" but none of them seem to fit in this context.
