Should one be able to proof technical jargon with which one is unfamiliar?

I do it all the time, and usually I do okay, but today I'm struggling with some advertising copy for, uh, some thing.

Consider this sentence:
This system also delivers high-torque shutdowns to free plugging in the bowl.

I have no idea what that means.  It looks grammatical.  I think I just hate giving my "okay" on something that I don't really understand.
