RSC Bio Solutions EnviroLogic 210 and EnviroLogic 215 readily biodegradable and non-toxic gear oils have passed the stringent performance requirements of Blohm. After significant testing, in both static and dynamic evaluations, these synthetic, high-performance products have met the requirements for two of Blohm + Voss Industries’ patented Simplex-Compact sealing systems: the “Standard” Seal and the “Airspace” Nonpolluting Seal.

Blohm + Voss Industries has manufactured seals and stern tubes for ships all over the world under the Simplex-Compact trademark since 1970. While specifically defining the EnviroLogic approval for Blohm + Voss Industries’ special FKM (Viton Pod) materials and replacement times, these products are utilized in a wide range of stern tube and thruster applications.

RSC Bio Solutions has more than 17 years of experience in environmentally safe fluid technologies, specializing in lubricating, cleaning and degreasing solutions. The companies service the cruise ship industry, as well as blue water transit ships and all types of oil services vessels. RSC Bio Solutions boasts an even longer track record with the offshore drilling industry, which has very similar applications to those of the maritime sector. RSC Bio Solutions has secured approvals from an extensive array of key manufacturers from these industries, including Blohm + Voss, Wartsila, Rolls Royce and ABB.

The EnviroLogic 200 Series floats in water and biodegrades rapidly, significantly reducing spill remediation costs and also does not create a “rainbow,” silvery or metallic sheen or gloss, nor increase reflectivity, visual color or iridescence. Terresolve’s stern tube and hydraulic fluids have been previously approved for Blohm + Voss Simplex-Compact stern tube seals and stabilizers. For more information about the Blohm + Voss approval, or about the EnviroLogic 200 Series, please call 1-800-661-3558.
