    "save from" a lifetime aspect

    Hello all forum users!

    What is the meaning of "save from" a lifetime aspect in the sentence below?

    Since flash-back protection is not connected with a high velocity nozzle, disc movement is no concern, save from a lifetime aspect.

    I think that save from a lifetime aspect means "except (for) a lifetime aspect" or "unless from the point of view of a lifetime.

    The phrase should be save from a lifetime aspect instead of save (for) a lifetime aspect (except /for/ a lifetime aspect).

    What is your opinion?

    Thank you.

    Disk movement seems to be related to the protection mechanism somehow which is not connected to a potential source of mechanical failure i.e. the nozzle thingy. This mechanical separation does not negatively affect the lifetime of the disk and or disk assembly. This translates into lifetime saving.

    This is my guess
    And I am not a teacher.

    I think you really need to quote your example sentences.

    Re: "save from" a lifetime aspect

    I can provide some more context.

    Check Section 2.2.5 on “Valve Misbehaviour.”Hammering is by definition non-intended full stroke movement of the pressure disc and should not be misunderstood for non-fluttering.C.1.Hammering is not an issue with vacuum valves as these are modulating and therefore unstable in the opening phase. Since flash-back protection is not connected with a high velocity nozzle, disc movement is no concern, save from a lifetime aspect.

    Re: "save from" a lifetime aspect

    As far as I'm concerned "save for" is the phrase used to mean "expect [for]" or "apart from". I don't understand a single word of the piece you quoted but that doesn't change my opinion.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Does "save from" in the sentence under discussion mean "save for"?

    Yes, it's a terribly written sentence, but it seems to imply that the only concern with disc movement is the lifetime aspect (which I guess relates to the useful life expectancy of the product, or part of the product"

    Since disk movement is no concern then it is an advantage that translates into "a saving from a lifetime aspect" or, in other words ," a saving from a product/part lifetime perspective"
    On the other hand if the disk movement of concern then problems could occur and therefore the lifetime of the part or product is expected to be less.

    That's how I would read it. It's not an immediate concern or malfunction that needs to be addressed. But it will cause the "lifetime" of the component to be shortened.
