Specialists in environmentally acceptable lubricants and cleaners, RSC Bio Solutions, has announced that two of its hydraulic fluids have been approved for use in MAN Diesel & Turbo systems.

The approval given to RSC’s EnviroLogic 3068 and EnviroLogic 3100 high performance hydraulic fluids allows the US-based company to serve customers who have MAN stern tubes and propellers, primarily in the marine transport, ferry and fishing industries.

Dr. Bernard C. Roell, Jr., vice president of technology at RSC Bio Solutions, said: “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.”

The EnviroLogic 3000 Series comprises readily biodegradable synthetic hydraulic fluids designed for extreme operating temperatures and pressures and are intended for use in mobile or marine hydraulic and propulsion systems operating in environmentally sensitive areas.

Under the new OEM approval, EnviroLogic 3068 and EnviroLogic 3100 are approved for use in the following MAN systems:

  • Fixed pitch propellers with oil lubricated stern tube
  • Controllable pitch propellers with common oil lubricated stern tube and hub
  • Controllable pitch propellers with separate oil lubricated stern tube and hub

They have original equipment manufacturer approval from Aegir, Blohm & Voss, Eaton/Vickers, Linde, Rolls Royce, Rexroth, Komatsu and Wärtsilä.
