disagree  Tony M: This wouldn't translate the source term, nor is it even plausible in the context given. 'Superimposed' has a special meaning here, but it is not 'excess pressure'
4 mins
  -> could you explain the meaning?

agree  Margareta Craiu: Containers with superimposed steam= Containers with overlaid steam

agree  Björn Vrooman: Thanks for the link. You're better off translating this from French (the German manual isn't any better). The FR doc says "(avec) prise de pression," for which I found this: https://encyclopedia2.thefreedictionary.com/pressure tap My French is rusty, tho.
1 day 3 hrs
  -> Good to hear that this is of some use. Looked at proposed answers and still no idea what overlaid steam is or does.
