BIOGEAR XP is a range of Environmentally Acceptable Thruster Lubricants delivering superior anti-wear, EP and oxidation protection even under severe conditions. They meet the requirements of DIN 51517 part 3.
Our range of environmentally acceptable lubricants (EALs) for this application are based on fully saturated synthetic esters and meet the detailed ecological definitions and requirements laid down in Vessel General Permit (VGP).
HYDROX 8 EP and HYDROX EP 150 are extreme pressure (EP) gear lubricants based on mineral oil that have been designed primarily for the lubrication of thrusters. They provide a very high standard of anti-wear performance suitable for the lubrication of heavily loaded gears, giving high resistance to micropitting and scuffing. They have been formulated to be suitable in applications where a combined gear and hydraulic function is required. Stable emulsions are formed with any water that may enter the unit and so provide protection against corrosion.
