A recent news article published in the Riviera states that Chevron Marine develops EAL for wet, corrosive conditions.
Clarity Synthetic EA Grease 0
Clarity Synthetic EA Grease 0 is an anhydrous calcium thickened lubricating grease based on biodegradable synthetic esters.
Chevron Marine said its new lubricant is suitable for marine applications where an NLGI 0 EA grease is required, including on rudder carrier pumps, slides, hinges, and propeller caps.
What does the grease contain?
The grease contains antioxidants, corrosion inhibitors, and extreme pressure and anti-wear additives. The calcium thickener, together with the biodegradable esters, makes the product particularly suitable for lubricating heavily loaded bearings.
It features excellent adhesion and water resistance and is designed for extreme applications in wet and corrosive environments, even at low temperatures.
Complying with parameters
The lubricant complies with parameters specified in the 2013 Vessel General Permit rules for environmentally acceptable lubricants issued by the US Environmental Protection Agency.
“This is an important addition to our product portfolio as it expands our range of EAL solutions to meet customers’ requirements,” Chevron technical field specialist Martin Roessner said.
“Wherever the application involves a risk of contamination to the water, soil or channels, this new Clarity Synthetic EA Grease 0 is recommended.”
Chevron said the grease is readily biodegradable and is able to be pumped within most modern, centralised lubrication systems.
