neutral  bigedsenior: generally, nozzle is used with liquids, and tuyeres for air. especially in large blast furnaces. essentially they are the same thing.

large tuyeres

I have found exactly one ref. to this term in the context, and it also has "toberines", so I am going to hazard a guess that these are different sizes of "toberas" (=tuyeres). It doesn't appear to be a standardized term. Here's the only thing I found in Spanish (the term comes up numerous times on this page, but never with any type of explanation).

Refs. for "tuyere":


The hot blast main enters into a doughnut shaped pipe that encircles the furnace, called the "bustle pipe" (13). From the bustle pipe, the hot blast is directed into the furnace through ***nozzles called "tuyeres" (30) (pronounced "tweers")***. These tuyeres are equally spaced around the circumference of the furnace. There may be fourteen tuyeres on a small blast furnace and forty tuyeres on a large blast furnace. These tuyeres are made of copper and are water cooled since the temperature directly in front of the them may be 3600°F to 4200°F.
