afblaasklep
Explanation:
Ik vermoed dat "air dump" in feite een "air dump valve" is, dus een afblaasklep of overdrukklep/ventiel.

A blowoff valve (BOV) or dump valve is a pressure release system present in most turbocharged engines.
Its purpose is to prevent compressor surge, and reduce wear on the turbocharger and engine. Blowoff valves relieve the damaging effects of compressor "surge loading" by allowing the compressed air to vent to atmosphere, making a distinct hissing sound, or recirculated into the intake upstream of the compressor inlet.

Manual lockout air dump valve ensures all air is relieved and locked out as required by OSHA
