RSC Bio Solutions announced that its EnviroLogic 3068 and EnviroLogic 3100 high-performance hydraulic fluids have been approved for use in MAN Diesel & Turbo Systems.
The EnviroLogic 3000 series consists of readily biodegradable synthetic hydraulic fluids designed for extreme operating temperatures and pressures. Because they are formulated to provide exceptional oxidation and thermal properties, these products are ideal for mobile or marine hydraulic and propulsion systems operating in environmentally sensitive areas, the company said.
The hydraulic fluids can withstand temperatures as high as 150°F or as low as 20°F, and they can handle pressure as great as 5,000+ psi. When compared to conventional, petroleum-based hydraulic oils, the EnviroLogic 3000 Series offers excellent wear protection and long changeover intervals.
Under the new OEM approval, EnviroLogic 3068 and EnviroLogic 3100 are approved for use in the following MAN systems: Fixed pitch propellers (FPP) with oil lubricated stern tube; Search Controllable pitch propellers (CPP) with common oil lubricated stern tube and hub; Controllable pitch propellers ( CPP) with separate oil lubricated stern tube and hub Controllable pitch propellers (CPP) with water lubricated stern tube and oil lubricated hub.
“We have been supporting the marine industry with our environmentally acceptable lubricants and long list of approvals for 20 years. We are excited that we continue to add to our depth and breadth of OEM approvals in continued support of the area,” said Bernard C. Roell, Jr., vice president of technology at RSC Bio Solutions based in Charlotte, N.C., U.S.A.
