“It is my privilege to use and supply L-44® ECD on our fleet of boats and barges. L-44® has reduced our concerns with human safety as well as environmental impact with its environmental profile. We feel this product is the future for inland and offshore vessels to ensure a safe environment for our workers and the planet. L-44® has allowed us to show our commitment to safety through our company audits as well as the Tankerman Management Self-Assessment or TMSA audits that are conducted on our company by our customers. SCF Liquids strives to be the safest operators in the business and products like L-44® allow us to achieve this. Our crew members have given great feedback on its cleaning ability and has reduced the time it takes to clean their work areas. We will continue to use L-44® and promote our experiences to other companies in our industry”.

Mike Babin, Port Engineer, SCF Liquids

"I have been using degreasers for many years and have never had the quality of degreaser that I am now using with the L-44® ECD. It reduces the amount of time I have to spend in the engine room cleaning which allows me more time to concentrate on my other duties. The younger generation of engineers are going to be spoiled by using a higher quality of degreaser than we had to use in the past. They will spend less time cleaning and no burning or skin irritation when it comes in contact with your skin.”

Rick Myers, Chief Engineer, M/V Twyla Luhr

"We enjoy an honored privilege for the opportunity extended our company by Joe Brantley of AEP River Operations to have L-44® ECD Degreaser evaluated as part of their corporate "Go Green” mission aboard the mv. Donna Rushing. We are uniquely indebted to AEP, and for the detailed efforts of Rob Korte and Jim Wilson for their testing reviews of L-44® ECD on multiple tugboats of the AEP fleet.”

"I wanted to take a minute to thank you and Custom Compounders for putting out the L44ECD degreaser. Our crews use your degreaser on a daily basis and feel that it preforms very well. As the manager of our facility I appreciate the fact that your degreaser is user friendly, environmentally friendly, and meets or exceeds our government standards. I regularly pass the information on L44 along to others that we work with in the industry including fuel and oil suppliers.”

"Thanks again for the opportunity to test your L-44 degreaser in our harbor fleeting operations. I now see why you had enough confidence in your product to offer a free sample for testing. Boy, were we pleased with the results! It’s nice to see a degreaser that not only cleans well, but also one that is safe for our employees and our equipment. Thanks again for opportunity to test your degreaser.”

You now have a new happy customer!

"I have worked for Luhr Bros. Inc. for 26 yrs on the boats and in their office. I came in the office in 1996 as a Safety Manager.  We have been using the "L-44 ECD” Degreaser for about 4 yrs. From my perspective as a Safety Professional, the L-44 "ECD” Degreaser we are using is better than any other degreasers we have used by far. With "L-44 ECD” Degreaser we have an environmentally safe product, and no crew members having to attend medical facilities due to being burned by direct skin contact. Also it does a great job cleaning our engines and not fading the paint job. I encourage all the river companies to give it a try.”
