Marine and environmentally acceptable Lubricants

Why Choose Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants (EALs)?

Categorized by the US EPA in the most favorable classification as environmentally acceptable lubricants (EALs), non-sheening polyalkylene glycol-based hydraulic and gear fluids are heavier than water, and water-soluble. The EPA’s 2013 Vessel General Permit (VGP) mandates that owners/ operators convert oil-to-sea interfaces (propulsion systems) from toxic petroleum oils to EALs. ACT’s Neptune line of AW and Gear lubricants provides value in being the only EAL to be truly non-sheening in the event of leaks.

Given the recent high profile news coverage of spills and their long term effect on the environment companies are now realizing how this can severely affect their public image as well as their bottom line. In addition to improving environmental credentials, the opportunity to reduce operating costs is just as important to the marine industry as any other business. The use of PAG lubricants is one way that vessel operators can achieve real cost saving benefits through superior performance, whilst virtually eliminating the impact of lubricants that leak into the planet’s oceans and waterways.
