Spanish term or phrase: presostato....caudalímeter...
WELDING MACHINES - presostato could be a device to measure pressure (air? water?) and caldalimeter is a device to measure the flow of water - what about pressure gauge & flow meter, given that i can't find them in my dics (inc McGraw Hill Boixareu Dic Terminos Cien Y Tec)

Is AL the abbreviation for alimentación?
Is it possible that in a table describing electrical characteristics that a cable length is recommended (sección cable de red (max 15 m) 6 mm2? If seccionador refers to A (amps) does it mean braeker and why is disyuntor used elsewhere? Could the Escote DIN Eje de Cabezal 48mm refer to the width of an axis when extended to the max, like a scissors?
ta to all in advance

Explanation:
English spelling: **pressurestat**. -- Doing Web searches using Alta Vista, Northern Light, Google and MetaFind, I can find NO entry in ANY language for either "caudalimet*" OR "cauldalimet*" Could you be looking for the term *volumenemeter? Here is what LGDT has: physique mécanique des fluides volumenometer (a) An instrument for measuring volumes, as of gases or liquids directly, or of solids by displacement of a liquid. (a) additionnal entries: volumeter (a) -- Yes, pressure meter/pressuremeter exists. My English entry on *pressure meter* in LGDT informs me that it is a synonym for **manometer**. Here is what Termium has on *manometer*: English:Fluid Mechanics and Hydraulics (Physics) Measuring Instruments Phraseology manometer s CORRECT DEF - Instrument for measuring pressure of gases and vapors. Gas pressure is balanced against column of liquid such as mercury, in U-shaped tube. s CONT - Water columns are often used for measuring small pressures above or below atmospheric pressure such as pressures in air ducts, gas lines, and the like. These pressure measuring devices are called manometers and they are calibrated in inches of water column. s -- And here is what Termium has on **flow meter** (and all its variants): English:Measuring Instruments (Engineering) Scientific Instruments Fluid Mechanics and Hydraulics (Physics) flowmeter s CORRECT flow-meter s CORRECT flow indicator s CORRECT fluid meter s CORRECT flow-measuring device s flow meter s flow gauge s SEE RECORD DEF - An instrument used to measure pressure, flow rate, and discharge rate of a liquid, vapor, or gas flowing in a pipe. s
DEF - A gauge that shows the speed of waste water.... s 1996-04-15 -- I have no idea what AL stands for -- Seccionador = breaker; from Termium, in the **field** of Circuit Breakers: English:Electrical Appliances and Equipment breaker s -- disyuntor: electrical disconnect. From Termium: English:Electrical Circuits and Circuit Breakers Small Electric Tools electrical disconnect s CORRECT

Explanation:
presostat/ flow meter/AL could refer to aluminium (cables)/ 15 mts max.lenght and 6mm2 cross section/A is Amps /seccionador is breaker/ disyuntor is a residual current device RCD/
Escote DIN Eje de Cabezal 48mm this could refer to the support specified by German DIN Standard to hold the breakers or similar devices. Hope it helps!!
