Spanish term or phrase:ensayo de arco interno
This is a text about e-business, and they mention MT equipment in SF6, (SF6 appears to be a component of dubious environmental qualities, which may or may not be banned.
The above "ensayo" is mentioned in respect
Explanation: I did find a lot of references for your term, both in English and in Spanish. Apparently, this term is used in a variety of fields (orthodontics, psychology and science/technology).
I found it in one CV from Argentina, and it appears that this analysis has to do with cell structure of some sort. From what I have seen on the Internet, you can quite possibly go with the above translation.
internal arc test ((seconding Laura G's suggestion))
Explanation: FYI, here's some more info about sulfur hexafluoride, from the manufacturer. (Environmentally speaking, as these compounds go, it's relatively benign...): "Sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) is a colorless, odorless, nontoxic, nonflammable gas that is used as an insulating gas in electrical equipment. At atmospheric pressures it sublimes directly from a solid to a gas. Sulfur hexafluoride is chemically inert and is completely stable in the presence of most materials to temperatures of about +400°F at 392 psig (+204°C at 28 bar). It is shipped as a liquefied compressed gas at its vapor pressure of 298 psig at +70°F (21.5 bar at +21.3°C). Sulfur hexafluoride is used for leak detection and as a gaseous dielectric for transformers, condensers and circuit breakers. Sulfur hexafluoride is highly effective as an etchant in the semiconductor industry. Spectra Gases Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) are available for Sulfurhexafluoride and should be used as guidelines in regard to first aid, methods of storage, handling and general use of Sulfur hexafluoride." -- Hope this helps put things in context!
