Tripartitore

I am dealing with a power line of a hydroelectric station. The main line at some point divides into three branches. This point in Italian is called "Tripartitore" that means "something that divides into three parts".
Can anybody suggest how to translate the word Tripartitore into English?

    I have seen the term tridivider (or tri-divider) however only one of the examples referred to electric generators and I don't know if it is legitimate.

    Tripartitore = derivatore/ripartitore a 3 vie (?)
    Ripartire = to split, to distribute (perhaps: 3 way splitter ?)
    I found :
    derivazione a T: line tap / tee point (point on the multi-terminal electric line where portions leading, directly or indirectly, to three or more terminations are joined)

    You'd better wait for some english speaking person.

    Hi,

    My attempt is :

    There is a word "Tripartite" that is used in nuclear physics (amongst other things) and if it can't be used in your context I would just say it branches/sub-divides in 3 parts
    .
