Renewable Lubricants introduced patented Bio-Fleet Rock Drill 40, an ultimately biodegradable lubricant for the protection of rock drills, jackhammers, and other pneumatic equipment. With a higher viscosity index, it better protects hot equipment.
Unlike petroleum-based products this unique ISO 40 weight formula will not pollute the air, water, soil or work environment should a spill or leak occur. It is safer for the environment and for those working nearby. Bio-Fleet Rock Drill 40 includes vegetable oils formulated with Antiwear/EP, rust, and oxidation inhibitors.
Designed to emulsify water for improved lubricity in moist conditions, these unique formulations provide extra adhesiveness and anti-misting. Bio-Fleet Roc Drill 40 is manufactured in the United States with readily available materials, which leads to its industry-leading lead times.
It is ideal for a wide range of drilling applications including water and monitoring well drilling, soil nailing, geothermal, blast hole drilling, mineral exploration, quarry drilling, civil engineering and construction projects, solar installations, anchoring, and more.
Performance is enhanced by use of the Stabilized HOBS’s natural composition, which provides an oily boundary film. The super high viscosity index of the Stabilized HOBS naturally improves the high temperature shear stability and fluid film strength between metal surfaces.
Renewable Lubricants’ Bio-Preferred products provide exceptional protection in equipment subject to extreme heavy shock loads, and excessive moisture or water spray. Given the direct danger of polluting the air, water, and soil due to lubricant loss, bio-based, Bio-Fleet Rock Drill 40 is safer for the environment than petroleum-based lubricants.
With a higher VI than synthetics (Energy Conserving Formulas), Bio-Rock Drill Oils have improved thermal shear stability and increased load capacity. Their extremely low volatility increases the flash and fire safety features, making them safer for employees to use.
They meet EPA 21013 Vessel General Permit (VGP) guidelines for Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants (EALs) and should be used in hydraulic systems where low toxicity, biodegradability, and non-bioaccumulation properties are required.
They exceed the acute toxicity requirements (LC-50/EC-50>1000 ppm) criteria adopted by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the U.S. EPA. Environmentally responsible Bio-Fleet Rock Drill 40 is formulated from renewable agricultural plant resources.
With patented antioxidants (Stabilized), these biosynthetics provide improved performance in oxidation stability over standard plant/vegetable/HETG and unsaturated HEES type fluids.
They are highly inhibited against moisture and rusting in both fresh and sea water, and pass A and B sequences of the ASTM D-665 Turbine Oil Rust Test. Formulated to provide a longer seal life with reduced oil leakage, this environmentally friendly, zinc-free product meets or exceeds high-pressure pump requirements.
Renewable Lubricants began as a research and development company in 1991, developing high performance products that would directly replace petroleum-based products. Starting from a single corn-based engine oil developed in the inventor’s garage, the company now offers more than 250 products and has over 100 worldwide patents.
The company manufactures its products as environmentally friendly as possible without sacrificing performance.
