How do FUTERRA products react with water intrusion (water contamination in a system)?

FUTERRA increases system uptime – Like oil, FUTERRA is demulsifying – separating and allowing for the effective removal of water from the fluid and system. Because it is chemically formulated to resist breakdown and to have near zero foam tendency, operators are likely to choose this fluid to extend the time interval between dry docks over other EALs and to increase pump life. With FUTERRA, operators are able to increase the effectiveness of the lubricant, extend service life of the equipment, reduce the need for change-outs and minimize fear of fluid failure.

How can FUTERRA increase operator flexibility?

FUTERRA increases operator flexibility – By meeting the highest global environmental standards, we’ve eliminated a large degree of complexity.  Operators often need to switch equipment or change out products based on where vessels are positioned.  RSC Bio Solutions offers greater flexibility in terms of route changes and equipment because with FUTERRA, you can go anywhere.

Has FUTERRA been field/lab tested to demonstrate performance claims?

RSC Bio Solutions has conducted its own extensive testing on the product prior to launch. Initial testing data supporting our performance claims is available by contacting RSC Bio Solutions. We also continue to test and validate our claims and are in talks with several industry players to begin field demos to further substantiate our performance in early 2017.

How does FUTERRA’s price compare with other EALs and conventional oil?

FUTERRA’s price is higher than standard petroleum-based products, but will fall below the price point of high-end synthetic esters currently on the market. However, it is important to evaluate fluids in light of total cost of ownership. Given FUTERRA’s performance and sustainability benefits and its ability to extend equipment service life and increase uptime, we believe it will offer the lowest total cost of ownership of any product on the market.
