 Occupational Safety and Health Guideline For Ethyl Chloride
Ethyl chloride is a gas at room temperature and a volatile liquid when compressed, or at lower temperatures.
Before a worker is placed in a job with a potential for exposure to ethyl chloride, a licensed health care professional should evaluate and document the worker's baseline health status with thorough medical, environmental, and occupational histories, a physical examination, and physiologic and laboratory tests appropriate for the anticipated occupational risks.
Containers of ethyl chloride should be protected from physical damage and water or steam, and should be stored separately from chemically active metals such as sodium, potassium, calcium, powdered aluminum, zinc, and magnesium, oxidizing materials, or alkalis.

 Tetra-ethyl lead - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
TEL is a viscous colorless liquid, produced by reacting ethyl chloride with a sodium-lead alloy.
TEL has a very weak carbon-lead bond, and at the temperatures found in internal combustion engines it decomposes into lead and ethyl radicals, propagating the combustion by radical reactions.
TEL was once used extensively as an additive in gasoline (petrol) for its ability to increase the fuel's octane rating (that is, to prevent its detonation ("knocking") in the engine) thus allowing the use of higher compression ratios for greater efficiency and power.

In this regard, management of hydrogen chloride (and affiliated hydrochloric acid) within the process is a key issue to be resolved when a catalyst system capable of conversion of both ethane and ethylene into vinyl chloride monomer is used.
In contemplation of vinyl chloride facility construction, there is also a need to enable use of prior equipment as much as possible, where some existing equipment may have the ability to handle hydrogen chloride and other existing equipment does not have the ability to handle hydrogen chloride.
The invention further provides an apparatus for manufacturing vinyl chloride, comprising : a reactor for generating a reactor effluent stream by catalytically reacting together ethane, ethylene, oxygen, and at least one chlorine source of hydrogen chloride, chlorine, or a chlorohydrocarbon, wherein the molar ratio of said ethane to said ethylene is between 0.

Examples of such ballasts are the ice in your drink which keeps it at a constant 0 C. until all the ice is gone, and the liquid nitrogen currently used for cryonics storage, which boils when heat is added but doesn't change temperature.
Moreover, ethyl chloride in industrial purity is cheap, as Michael Paulle's recent research has demonstrated (thanks, Michael!).
The cooling unit which hangs along-side the patient is a fan and a long hermetically sealed cylinder of ethyl chloride, at the heart of which lies a multiply coiled heat exchanger tube, into which is introduced liquid nitrogen.

I'm probably biased in my assessment of ethyl chloride from the fact that this liquid is used in medicine clinically as a local skin "chill" anaesthetic, and so I've gotten to work with it some.
I don't have the numbers, but I can predict that heat of fusion for ethyl bromide will be similar to ethyl chloride per MOLE and per VOLUME, but (mostly because bromine is heavier) only about 60% as much per weight.
The other main candidate is n-propanol, which melts at -126 C and has 25% better performance then ethyl chloride on heat of fusion (I have to say, however, that this compound had a really lousy looking phase transition in my experiments).

Four cans (3 empty, 1 partially empty) containing ethyl chloride and labeled as VCR head cleaner were found next to the body.
The peak was identified as ethyl chloride and the concentrations in the blood, urine, vitreous, brain, and lungs of the deceased were 423 mg/L, 35 mg/L, 12 mg/L, 858 mg/kg, and 86 mg/kg, respectively.
The results were compared with previously reported levels of ethyl chloride in blood and vitreous and, based on a literature search, we believe that this is the first report of ethyl chloride levels in tissue.

Ethyl chloride most likely will make a poor solvent, depending on what you are extracting, as it will not stand up to an A/B. However, for just straight up extracting, it may work, as a non-flammable, chlorinated hydrocarbon solvent.
ethyl chloride is FAR from useless, just too volatile to be useful in that application.

Bulk quantities of ethyl chloride and methyl chloride are brought on site primarily by railcar and loaded into storage tanks.
The "worst-case scenario" (WCS), as defined by EPA, is associated with anhydrous hydrogen chloride and is a catastrophic failure in the hydrogen chloride railcar.
For anhydrous hydrogen chloride, the ACS is the failure of a safety device on a single tube of a tube trailer, resulting in a release of 3000 pounds of hydrogen chloride over a 15-minute period.

In such a design we'd have to have much thicker aluminum heat conductors radiating from the central ethyl chloride heat dump out to our hexagonal cryogrub cells ("cryogrub" = frozen TV dinner for whatever creatures come to inhabit the future Earth...), and essentially no insulation between conductor and the inside of our cells at all.
