English term or phrase: positive captured
Il s'agit de recommandations pour la protection des ensembles HP/MP de turbine en cas d'arrêt prolongé ou pour le transport.

La phrase de contexte est :
Install VCI emitters to inside of cover. Emitters are to be wired together and **positive captured**.

Un peu plus haut, on trouve la phrase suivante :
Emitters are to be wired together and to the pipe cap for **positive capture**.

Merci d'avance de vos lumières.

Explanation:
"The holes in the metal jacketing through which the inhibitor spikes are inserted can be left open, especially if located on the bottom of the metal jacketing but it is preferable to seal the holes to minimize further ingress of water and eliminate the possibility of any partially dissolved inhibitor spikes falling onto the ground. Accordingly the holes may be covered with tape (especially a metal foil tape) or by filling them with caulk, sealant, or mechanical plugs. Because the sealed holes are not subjected to the relative mechanical movement due to differential thermal expansion and/or wind-induced vibration that led to the initial failure of the seals between the shop-applied and field-applied jacketing, a reasonable lifetime for the plugs may be expected.

If a mechanical plug is used, the plug could be in the form of a cap on the end of the inhibitor spike such that when the spike was inserted into the insulation, the cap automatically plugged the hole. The cap could be tapered and/or barbed such that when inserted into the hole, the cap was positively captured, ensuring the inhibitor spike remained securely in the insulation. This feature could be incorporated as part of the one-step “nail gun” installation method. Such mechanical variations are well known to those skilled in the art."
