RSC Lubricant Accepted for VGP

RSC Bio Solutions’ EnviroLogic 268 wire rope, cable and chain lubricant has been evaluated by independent laboratories and meets the Vessel General Permit (VGP) 2013 guidelines from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for environmentally acceptable lubricant (EAL) compliance.

The EnviroLogic 268 lubricant is designed for use in heavy-duty wire rope, cable and chain lines, like those used in marine environments. The lubricant is based on natural ester technology and is a direct replacement for mineral oil-based chain lubricants. As a readily biodegradable lubricant with low toxicity, the product reduces harmful effects when discharged into the environment.

EnviroLogic 268 also contains a special tackiness agent to reduce sling-off from wire rope, cable and chain operations at high speeds, and the lubricant contains a corrosion inhibitor for equipment protection from moisture.

RSC Bio Solutions announced the certification of its EnviroLogic 100, 3000 series hydraulic fluids and SAFECARE cleaners in September 2013 and the certification of its EnviroLogic 200 hydraulic fluid series, 200EP hydraulic fluid series and 802 grease products in November 2013.

Among the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) approvals held by EnviroLogic products are Berg Propulsion, Blohm+Voss, IHC Sealing Solutions, Schottel, SKF, Thrustmaster and Wartsila. In addition, the products meet the specifications required by Brunvold, Kamewa and Rolls Royce. The key component and seal approvals held by EnviroLogic products include ATA, Chesterton, John Crane, Klingelnberg, Ortlinghaus, Simplex and Wartsila UK/Japan.
