This seems to be from a text dealing with pipes carrying dry 'materials'. I suggest 'Trockendichtung' as the pipes involved could be, e.g., galvanized pipes for gas mixtures which are dry pipes by function and require different seals from, e.g., water pipes which can use cheap and simple rubber seals.

trockene Sicherheitsvorlage

aus Ernst, TEchnisches Wörterbuch

dry seal (weld)= trockene Sicherheitsvorlage

Maybe this is helpful in addition to what's been proposed already.

As this is about a thread, I think I might have found what you need.

I am no expert in the field, but I was curious and tried Google, which took me to the site indicated under references.

This is what I found:

NPTF trocken
National Taper Pipe Fuel and Oil
Ein dichtendes und druckfestes konisches Rohrgewinde. Kegel 1:16. Dryseal- und Levl-Seal-Ausführung.

This tells me that "Dryseal" is an international term for a certain type of thread, so I would not translate it.
