Spanish term or phrase: llantas de obturación
Here is the original context. It's from a text about a machine that filters clay from a filtrate.


"...el lado interior que consta de llantas de obturación incorporado en el propio cojinete así como un retén de doble labio y junta tórica previsto en la tapa interior"

I want a couple of other items from this sentence too, but I'll include them in seperate questions.

Explanation:
llantas are rims, but I believe obturación is sealing. You can do a Google search with the words 'obturación' + 'sealing' and you will find some pages in which the word obturacion is translated as sealing.

Hope it helps. Happy translating! ;o) Maria
