Apparently, Visonol and Nitrogol do NOT contain PCBs so you don't have to worry
about that. Always check those odd chemical names out for PCBs.

To repeat: I have checked my list from the Health Dept. again: VISCONOL and
NITROGOL are *SAFE*. I recently came across some old 8" HDD motors with
split-phase caps made by GEC marked ELEKTROL. It was stated on the caps that
they contained no PCBs. I would treat all other "OLs" as suspect. I have opened
a Nitrogol cap and done a flame test and confirmed the finding. I have since
used it in a dielectric strength test chamber.
The next question is can the take say 15 amps RMS of Current at 200kHz with
peaks of about 1000 amps. that is a much harder question I don't know the
