NEW! MPS 996 BIO

For lip types seals with WATER INGRESS- EAL

Description

FOR LIP TYPE SEALS – VGP AND ECOLABEL CERTIFIED
MPS 996 BIO is specially designed to re-establish the sealing effect in defective lip seals systems with water ingress, where the use of EALs is regulatory.

how to apply mps 996 BIO

The MPS 996 BIO paste must be injected in its concentrated form directly to the aft seal chambers. It is necessary to have a suitable pump for application. Lindemann can supply a high pressure pump for easy application which suits the 18 kg drum. The pump can later be used for other purposes.

Description

MPS 996 BIO is silica thickened paste based on sustainable and readily biodegradable esters. MPS 996 BIO is qualified as EAL and is developed specifically to stop water ingress in systems with lip type seals where EAL oils are used.

Working principle
Dynamic barrier in aft seal chambers

MPS 996 BIO contains a very high amount of solids, which due to friction will embed the wear surfaces during operation, repairing minor defects in the contact surfaces between shaft and seal.
MPS 996 BIO has a seal revitalizing effect, which preserves or restores flexibility of the rubber seals without swelling.

Compatibility
  • MPS 996 BIO will work equally well with most materials e.g. bronze, chrome, stainless steel or brass and rubber, asbestos and plastics.
  • MPS 996 BIO is compatible with FKM elastomers.
  • MPS 996 BIO can be used as an additive with EALs.
BENEFITS
  • MPS 996 BIO is an EAL and satisfies the EPA 2013
    Vessel General Permit (VGP) requirements
  • Compatible with most EAL (Environmentally
    Acceptable Lubricants) oils
  • Compatible with FKM elastomers
    MPS restores seals elasticity without swelling.
  • Broad working temperature range
    MPS tolerates temperatures from -10° C to  120° C.
  • Surface treatment
    MPS polishes surface and fills in minor cracks.
  • Anti-corrosion and EP properties
    MPS enhances corrosion protection and allows increased loads
    in water contaminated environments.
Typical application areas
MPS 996 BIO is specially designed to re-establish the sealing effect in defective lip seals systems with water ingress, where the use of EALs is regulatory.
