LE Introduces Earthwise(TM) Lubricant for Use on or Near Water
VGP-Compliant EAL Allows Users To Go Green without Sacrificing Performance
WICHITA, Kan. – Lubrication Engineers, Inc. specifically formulated its new Earthwise™ EAL Wire Rope Grease (3353) to be earth friendly while still meeting the rigorous performance demands of industrial applications.
This soft, semifluid coating grease is a certified Environmentally Acceptable Lubricant, recommended for use in applications on or near waterways. It is perfect for oil-to-sea interfaces as well as deck applications. It meets the specifications required by the EPA’s Vessel General Permit; it is readily biodegradable, exhibits minimal aquatic toxicity and will not accumulate in the cells of fish and other aquatic life forms.
Earthwise EAL Wire Rope Grease is an NLGI 0 grease designed to coat wire rope as well as moving chain and cable parts to ensure long life and smooth, quiet operation. Its semi-tacky, water-resistant characteristics enable it to adhere to the application, seal out damaging moisture, protect against rust formation, and shield against acid attack. The formulation includes a robust additive package, including LE’s proprietary Almasol® and Quinplex® additives, to further help the grease protect against wear, corrosion, impact, rust and oxidation.
LE’s R&D team worked hard to come up with a formulation that would fit the bill for an environmentally acceptable lubricant as well as reliably perform in the application.
“After extensive field tests, we landed on a product that will help our customers worldwide protect their assets while meeting today’s environmental regulations,” said John Sander, vice president of technology. “Next up, we will broaden the Earthwise™ line to include additional types of lubricants. We look forward to continuing to help our customers with their lubrication reliability challenges.”
