Spanish term or phrase:pasada de penetración
"También en caso de diámetros grandes podrá efectuarse un punteo largo y con penetración en raíz de manera que después de un saneamiento sirva como pasada de penetración al efectuar la definitiva." Talking about welding section of pipes. I'm not sure about punteo largo either, in fact the whole sentence is a nightmare! Help! I have hazarded a guess at the following: "Also, in the event of large diameters a long perforation can be carried out and with root penetration so that after cleaning-up it serves to ensure penetration when making the definitive weld."
