Total Lubmarine Introduces Newest Environmentally Acceptable Lubricant

Total Lubmarine has announced the introduction of a new grease product: BIO OG PLUS – an innovative addition to an already comprehensive Environmentally Acceptable Lubricant (EAL) range.

Specifically formulated for sensitive applications such as open gears and chains under high load, BIO OG PLUS mitigates the challenges of working in environments where water contamination is common.

On top of being an extreme pressure and adhesive grease, Lubmarine says, BIO OG PLUS’s biodegradable qualities allow owners, managers and operators of vessels to take a more environmentally considerate approach to lubrication. It is also a vital resource to those operating in areas requiring the use of EAL Lubricants, such as those working within jurisdiction of the US.

Anne-Sophie Vaucheret, Marine Technical Engineer at Total Lubmarine said of the new product: “We are very happy to bring a new product into our range – and this is something that our customers have been asking for. We pride ourselves on an ability to offer an end-to-end lubrication solution, and with BIO OG PLUS, all of our customer’s needs are covered.”
