English term or phrase: bridged spark plug
Nella sezione troubleshooting del manuale di una pompa antincendio portatile, quando si parla delle possibili cause di malfunzionamento del motore a benzina, incontro questo termine.
Da quanto ho capito si tratta di una candela dove il gap è stato colmato per via della sporcizia o di altro elemento, ergo non è più in grado di fare la scintilla essendo tutto equipotenziale.

La mia traduzione migliore è "colmata", però non trova riscontro su google. Qualcuno ha idee migliori (o più esperienza)? Grazie!

La frase intera è:

Spark plug is burnt, dirty, damaged or ***bridged***.

Explanation:
Gap bridging is caused by conditions similar to those that produce splash fouling. Combustion deposits thrown loose may lodge between the electrodes, causing a dead short and misfire. Fluffy materials that accumulate on the side electrode may melt to bridge the gap when the engine is suddenly put under a heavy load.

* Depositi fuligginosi
Cause: carburazione troppo ricca; malfunzionamento dello starter; filtro aria sporco.
Oltre un certo accumulo depositi carboniosi e residui fuligginosi possono provocare mancate accensioni fino all’inefficienza totale della candela (fenomeno della cosiddetta “candela a massa”).
