English term or phrase: seating force / final seating force
Examples:
1) Keep under control the dial indicator of the manometer in order to get the right seating force.
2) The value of this final seating force must be reliable and independent from the operator. The correct final setting force is indicated on the TBU assembly drawing.

Schließkraft oder Einstellwert
Explanation:
Due to the ball seating with pressure, the higher the pressure, the higher the closing or seating force. This high seating force, along with slight rotation of the ball during the initial opening travel, results in a new seating surface contacting the seat each time the valve is closed.
http://www.dft-valves.com/control_valves.htm

This is important, because the test pressure used can have a relatively
serious impact on the valve’s ability to shut off since the
pressure drop across the valve plug and seat results in an unbalance
that will change the seating force between these two parts,
and the seating force is one of the primary determinants for valve
leakage. If you examine a typical valve construction (Figure 2), it
is clear why this happens.

Zum besseren Verständnis:

seating force = Schließkraft
settings = Einstellwert (Sollwert des Ventils, in diesem Fall Solldruck), immer vorausgesetzt, daß es sich bei "setting force" nicht um einen Schreibfehler handelt.
