Earthwise product line meets performance & environmental criteria

EAL Ship Graphic

LE’s Earthwise™ lubricants are specifically formulated to be earth friendly, while still meeting the rigorous demands of industrial applications, including those with significant water exposure. With these products, you can “go green” – and keep up with the latest environmental regulations – without having to sacrifice performance.

 

Earthwise™ EAL Wire Rope Grease

Lubrication Engineers has self-certified its first Earthwise offering — its EAL Wire Rope Grease — after ensuring that the formulation met all EAL criteria.

Earthwise EAL Wire Rope Grease (3353) is an NLGI 0 grease recommended for use in applications on or near the waterways. It is an EAL and meets the specifications required by the EPA’s Vessel General Permit (VGP).

It is readily biodegradable, exhibits minimal aquatic toxicity and will not accumulate in the cells of fish and other aquatic life forms. It is a soft, semifluid formulation designed to coat wire rope as well as moving chain and cable parts to ensure long life and smooth, quiet operation. Its semi-tacky, water-resistant characteristics enable it to adhere to the application and seal out damaging moisture and protect against rust formation. Its robust additive package, including LE’s proprietary Almasol® and Quinplex® additives, further helps it protect against wear, corrosion, impact, rust and oxidation.

Earthwise EAL Syn Hydraulic Fluid


Earthwise EAL Syn Hydraulic Oil (3332-3368) is a certified Environmentally Acceptable Lubricant (EAL), recommended for use in applications on or near waterways. It meets the specifications required by the EPA’s Vessel General Permit (VGP). It is readily biodegradable, exhibits minimal aquatic toxicity and will not accumulate in the cells of fish and other aquatic life forms. In addition, the base oil used in this full synthetic formulation comes from renewable resources. A long-lasting, nonfoaming fluid designed to protect the life of hydraulic pumps and motors, it offers excellent protection against cold temperatures and resists oxidation in high temperatures. It also withstands extreme pressure, prevents rust and corrosion, and separates from water.

What Is an EAL?

EAL Infographic

EALs are environmentally acceptable lubricants that are biodegradable and minimally toxic, and are not bioaccumulative – as defined in Appendix A of the 2013 VGP. Each constituent substance in a lubricant formulation must be tested individually to meet the criteria.

EALs & Biodegradability

EAL Infographic

In oil formulations, at least 90 % of the formulation must contain substances that are readily biodegradable. Up to 5% may be non-biodegradable (but not bioaccumulative). The remainder must be inherently biodegradable. In grease formulations, at least 75% of the formulation must contain substances that are readily biodegradable. The remainder may be either inherently biodegradable or non-biodegradable (but not bioaccumulative).
