Chevron Marine Lubricants is pleased to announce the launch of its Clarity Synthetic EA Grease 0, an anhydrous calcium thickened lubricating grease based on biodegradable synthetic esters that meet the parameters specified in the 2013 Vessel General Permit (VGP) rules for environmentally acceptable lubricants issued by U.S. Environmental Protection agency (EPA).
The high-performance grease is suitable for a variety of marine applications where an NLGI 0 EA grease is required, including rudder carrier pumps, slides, hinges, and propeller caps.
The grease contains antioxidants, corrosion inhibitors, and Extreme Pressure and Anti Wear (EP/AW) 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.
“This is an important addition to our product portfolio as it expands our range of EAL solutions to meet customers’ requirements.” commented Martin Roessner, technical field specialist, Chevron. “Wherever the application involves a risk of contamination to the water, soil or channels, this new Clarity Synthetic EA Grease 0 is recommended.”
In addition to its many marine applications, the grease has universal applications in forestry, agricultural, and construction vehicles. It is readily biodegradable and is easily pumpable in most modern centralized lubrication systems.
