    If your welding extra heavy pipe which leads me to believe, High presure steam
    ( You know the kind that will cut you in half if you walk by it and theres a leak.

    And your asking how many passes it takes to weld it out.

    Plus you dont even tell us what size pipe, The bigger dia. the pipe the thicker it needs to be to hold the same pressure.

    Your scaring me with your question.

      oops, Sorry you did give the size, There is also a good chance that you need to have 2 welders on a pipe of that size.
