Scots Bearings are proud to promote and offer Rocol’s BIOGEN WIRESHIELD, an Environmentally Acceptable Lubricant for all ROV Umbilicals.
Offshore and subsea environments are amongst the most demanding conditions possible for maintenance lubricants. So there is absolutely no room for performance compromise when it comes to meeting even stricter environmental standards demanded under the new VGP requirements.
That is particularly pertinent to the lubrication of wire ropes and umbilicals, which are routinely used in the field for many years. Lubricants used on this equipment are expected to perform consistently for extended periods as re-application at sea is extremely challenging, and the high cost to replace corroded or damaged umbilicals during their assignment puts a sharp focus on ensuring the lubricants do their job.
As an Environmentally Acceptable Lubricant (EAL), BIOGEN WIRESHIELD was developed by ROCOL specifically to meet the biodegradable definition, according to the OECD 306 test method. Prior to customer trials, product testing had already demonstrated zero galvanic reaction after 1000 hours in salt spray tests, plus shear stability in the presence of salt water with little degradation.For further information on this Rocol product or any of the Rocol products please don’t hesitate to contact your local Scots Bearings Branch.
