Chevron Products Company, a Chevron U.S.A. Inc. division, unveiled a new line of Clarity Synthetic EA Hydraulic and Gear Oils for the marine industry and other applications where leaks or accidental discharge are a concern. These products meet the new EPA Vessel General Permit (VGP) requirements for environmentally acceptable lubricants (EALs).

Clarity Synthetic EA Hydraulic and Gear Oils are designed to give maximum protection and provide seal compatibility in hydraulic equipment and industrial gear applications on vessels and equipment where performance is critical. This includes marine applications such as: stern tubes, thrusters, controllable pitch propellers, stabilizers, rudder bearings and other mechanical equipment subject to immersion.

These products may be used in other hydraulic and gear applications requiring high performance lubricants. The oils are high viscosity index (VI) synthetic products that provide premium performance and long oil life, while allowing for operation over a wide temperature range.

Clarity Synthetic EA Hydraulic Oils are designed to the performance requirements of synthetic antiwear hydraulic oils, while providing VGP compliance in case of leaks or incidental discharge to the environment.

Chevron will offer three grades of Clarity Synthetic EA Hydraulic Oils (ISO 46, 68 and 100) for use in hydraulic systems as recommended by: ISO 15380 HEPR, DIN, Denison and Eaton-Vickers. The ISO 68 and 100 products are recommended for marine stern tube usage.

“Environmental compliance is a major concern for companies in the marine, agriculture and construction markets,” commented Jim Gambill, Chevron Marketing Manager of Americas.

“The goal is to meet these regulatory and environmental requirements, without sacrificing equipment durability. The new Clarity Synthetic EA hydraulic and gear oils provide high performance while meeting today’s environmental standards. With the Clarity Synthetic EA hydraulic and gear oils, we’re able to deliver the same oil performance our customers expect from Chevron, with products that biodegrade by more than 60% within 28 days.”
