askarel (un hidrocarbono que se usa como aislante líquido)

"generic term for a group of synthetic, fire-resistant, chlorinated aromatic hydrocarbons used as electrical insulating liquids. Gases produced in an askarel by arcing conditions consist predominantly of noncombustible hydrogen chloride, with lesser amounts of combustible gases. Manufacture of askarels has been discontinued in the U.S. because of their toxicity."


Término genérico para denominar un grupo de hidrocarbonos sintéticos, resistentes al fuego y aromatizados con cloro que se utiliza como líquido aislante en utensilios eléctricos. (...) La producción de askareles se ha interrumpido en los Estados Unidos por ser altamente tóxico."
