English term or phrase: sustained burst
A sustained burst of delta radiation
might do the trick.

Here it refers to one shot of radiation to stabilize a liduid matter.
I need to know if there is a Swedish expression for sustained burst. I found many occurrences of it in English, but none in Swedish. I tried sammanhängande salva and that didn't work.
