This is my first question on English SE. I'm rewriting a technical manual and I'm stuck at some terms which I'm going to ask here in the following days.
I'm trying to find a better alternative for the "to remain open" phrase. It's being used in a parameter name and if it's possible has to be expressed in the passive voice. The complete sentence will be something like "Steam Output Remain Open Duration". The current translation for this phrase is "Steam Output On Duration" which doesn't sound correct to me.
PS: To clarify the situation I have to explain this parameter. It is the duration whilst the steam output remains open.
