excess pressure or over pressure

"to adjust the welding pressure or over pressure by means of the regulator"
Your document apparently refers to oxyacetylene welding, GTAW (Gas Tungstic Arc Welding), or GMAW (Gas Metallic Arc Welding), all of which use compressed gases.

pressure surge

I wish I had a bit more of an idea of what, exactly, is being done to what. The two terms proposed previously would work for a number of contexts. Here is the Termium explanation for "surge", in case that should fit your context better: surge s CORRECT DEF - A variation in pressure or flow at the discharge of a compressor: a momentary rise in pressure.
