Chevron launches EALs

ADVERTISEMENT

California-based Chevron Products Company, a division of Chevron U.S.A. and maker of advanced lubricants, has launched a new line of Clarity Synthetic EA Hydraulic and Gear Oils, which are designed for maximum protection and good seal compatibility on hydraulic equipment and industrial gear applications including stern tubes, thrusters, controllable pitch propellers, stabilizers, rudder bearings and other equipment subject to immersion.


These products meet the new EPA Vessel General Permit (VGP) requirements for environmentally acceptable lubricants (EALs).


The oils are high viscosity index (VI) synthetic products and provide VGP compliance in case of leaks or incidental discharge.


Chevron will offer three grades of the oils (ISO 46, 68 and 100) for use in hydraulic systems as recommended by: ISO 15380 HEPR, DIN, Denison and Eaton-Vickers.


“Environmental compliance is a major concern for companies in the marine, agriculture and construction markets,” said Jim Gambill, Chevron’s manager of marketing in the Americas. “The goal is to meet these regulatory and environmental requirements, without sacrificing equipment durability. With the new oils, we’re able to deliver the same oil performance our customers expect from Chevron, with products that biodegrade by more than 60 percent within 28 days.”


Under the revised Vessel General Permit, which went into effect in December, all vessels entering or operating in U.S. waters are required to use EALs in all oil-to-sea interfaces. This includes any application that is under the vessel’s waterline, as well as applications such as mooring lines where lubricants may be exposed over water.
