Our Liquid Engineers developed the BioStat range to help minimise the environmental impact of operational discharges from stern tune and thruster seals. Equipment reliability is not compromised by the product’s environmental benefits.
Castrol BioStat goes through rigorous technical testing. It gives high levels of protection to bearing and gear components, particularly at high loads and low speeds, which can contribute to extended component life and increased reliability bwhen compared to a convenrional mineral based oil. Our Liquid Engineers have selected the esters in Castrol BioStat so you can be confident that the lifespan of elastomer components is not compromised.
Thanks to the knowledge and experience of our Liquid Engineers, when compared to conventional mineral based oils, Castrol BioStat demonstrates superior biodegradation and enhanced renewability, as well as significantly reduced bioaccumulation* and toxicity. Extra confidence comes from knowing that it is OSPAR registered and classified as an EAL by the US 2013 VGP.
