Italian to English translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering - Engineering: Industrial / Steam turbine maintenance
Italian term or phrase:sostituzione delle tenute vapore
This company deals with turning and balancing components in power plants. The text says:
We use a lathe for particular processes carried out in situ or on our premises involving: - sostituzione di palette e tornitura dei nastri di bendaggio - tornitura dei colli – collar grinding - sostituzione delle tenute vapore e tornitura delle stesse.
Most of the hits for this phrase come with something else, like "guarnizioni tenuta vapore" or "manicotti tenuta vapore". So could it be some kind of seal that goes round a pipe joint to stop the steam escaping?
"A tenuta d'aria" is "airtight".
