tips for welding x ray sch 80 stainless pipe

so im a little nervious about taking an 2 inch sch 80 xray test. Any suggestions on set up or heat range?


hope this is not too late..

assuming its carbon steel and open butt,
a 3/32 to 1/8" gap with feather edge.

use either 1/8" rod laying it in gap, or dip and keyhole with 3/32" rod,

here are 2 pages with video that might help.
