RSC Bio Solutions expands series of biodegradable lithium complex greases
RSC Bio Solutions, a global leader in environmentally acceptable lubricants and cleaners, recently announced the expansion of its EnviroLogic 800 series of biodegradable greases. The EnviroLogic 800 series are VGP compliant, biodegradable Lithium Complex greases designed to operate in severe outdoor environments and withstand corrosion.
RSC Bio Solutions is introducing EnviroLogic 800 and EnviroLogic 801 greases to further compliment the already established EnviroLogic 802, allowing the company to offer solutions for additional applications when specifications call for NLGI grades #0 and #1.
“We are very pleased that we can expand our grease offering to include #0 and #1 NLGI grades with the same environmental profile as our #2 NLGI grade EnviroLogic 802,” said Dr. Bernard C. Roell, Jr., vice president of technology at RSC Bio Solutions. “No single grade of grease is capable of meeting all application needs and it only made sense that we expand this product line to include lower NLGI grades.”
The EnviroLogic 800 series were specifically designed for multi-purpose high performance industrial applications where incidental environmental exposure is a cause for concern. They operate in equipment or systems over a wide temperature range in both marine and land applications. Examples of marine applications include deck cranes, davits, fin stabilizers, shaft bearings, controllable pitch propellers, stern thrusters, barges, roll on/roll off (RO/RO) hatches, cargo hold doors and other moving parts on ships. On land, the EnviroLogic 800 series could be used in any application where grease could end up in the environment, such as garage doors, tracks, hinges, trailers and construction equipment.
The EnviroLogic 800 series demonstrate excellent low temperature pumpability, extreme pressure, antiwear protection and oil separation stability during storage. They are biodegradable and will not cause harm to aquatic life or animals.
EnviroLogic sustainable lubricants are suitable, proven and approved for a wide range of applications, and meet a wide range of ISO grades and industry performance specifications. These solutions maintain technical feasibility evident in the many original equipment manufacturer (OEM) approvals, including: Aegir, Blohm & Voss, Eaton/Vickers, Linde, Rolls Royce, Rexroth, Komatsu and Wärtsilä.
