Spanish term or phrase: Torta (engineering)
Here is the original context:

En ambos rollers de accionamiento están previstos rasquetes para la descarga de la torta. Un concepto íntimo entre rasquete y banda es indispensable para un funcionamiento perfecto de la descarga. Para mantener este contacto los soportes de ambos rasquetes están equipados con contrapesos.

"Torta" here seems tobe a synonmy for the "masa" - but would material be enough here?

Incidentally If anyone can suggest something for "concepto intimo" that is not rude here, I'd appreciate that too ;-)

Goodnight from a cool Barcelona

Cake
Explanation:
Yes, cake if it refers to a filtration equipment. In a filter (p.e. rotary or drum filter)a cake is formed composed of the solid material thus separated from the liquid material. Never heard of concepto íntimo, but it may be a typo for "contacto íntimo" (close contact or close fit as the other colleague suggests). Hope it helps.
