Tech/Engineering - Energy / Power Generation / SF6-Switching Station / pumped storage power station
German term or phrase: Durchschweißzeiten
Context:
This term has to do with an explanation of the protection against explosion in a power plant, such as controllable pressures, endurances and "Durchschweißzeiten".
In this case, I do not believe that reference is being made to e.g. root penetration, as in welding
Since gas is used, my gut feeling says "sweat-through times" although I have no reference to this in either Ernst or Siemens dictionary.

Thanks for any assistance or confirmation

fusing times


Explanation:
It probably refers to safety issues rather than welding (context inadequate). So it could be the time taken for a fire door to fuse, for example.

burn-through times


Explanation:
This is what it looks like to me; the time it would take to burn through e.g. a fireproof door in case of emergency. I know you've given explosion protection as context, but maybe after an explosion comes a fire, and people trapped have to be rescued by cutting into wherever they are....Maybe it fits?
