Insulation again!
The section on Flangie, valvole, giunti d'espansione ...

Per le valvole si dovra lasciare libero (per manutenzione) il tratto di flangia premistoppa a volantino.

peró rileggendo il testo, la flangia premistoppa ed il volantino potrebbero anche essere due cose separate, forse in italiano sarebbe meglio \"il tratto dalla flangia premistoppa al volantino\", quindi \"the area from the gland flange to the handweel\"
