L-44 ECD Degreaser

Safer Choice, VGP, no VOC’s, non-corrosive, readily biodegradable

L-44 ECD Degreaser, our flagship product became EPA certified for environmental and worker safety in 2009 and it exceeds the Vessel General Permit (VGP) standards for Aquatic Toxicity and Total Product Biodegradability.

Originally designed for cleaning maritime and river diesel engines, ECD has since proven to effortlessly clean everything it comes in contact with – engines and equipment for maritime, auto, aviation, and industrial manufacturing applications. It is easily applied with the use of a pump-style garden sprayer and highly concentrated, so less product cleans more as quickly as 2-3minutes, saving time and dollars.  See our L-44 ECD page for complete product information.

L-44 ECDB Degreaser

Safer Choice, VGP, no VOC’s, non-corrosive, readily biodegradable

Cleaning layers of engine grease, grime, dirt, and environmental deposits from marine engines and industrial parts can be labor-intensive and costly. Frequently, chemically aggressive commercial degreasers get mixed extra strong and workers still find they have to oversaturate and scrub to do the job.

Our EPA certified Safer Choice L44® ECDB Degreaser is the perfect solution with the perfect dilution – every time! Offering the same amazing performance as ECD, we’ve simply added the blue colorant, which was also certified by the EPA, so your workers have a visual indicator of the proper mixture. No more product overuse and extra labor means money and time saved. Not to mention the safety to your crew by avoiding potentially harmful fumes from VOCs and preventing dangerous eye and skin injuries on exposure. See our L44 ECDB page for complete product information.

L-44 OSD Degreaser – Best Degreasing for OWS

Direct release, Safer Choice, VGP, no VOC’s, non-corrosive, readily biodegradable

Did you know, with your choice of degreaser, you could be dramatically affecting the rate at which water is discharged and the accuracy of the oil-to-water OCM reading? Regardless of onboard or land-based OWS operations, the use of harsh chemicals in most commercial degreasers can have a substantial impact on the efficiency and accuracy of an OWS’s Oil Content Monitor (OCM).

Our newest product, which is highly-rated for efficacy and safety, is our eco-friendly, high-performance L-44 OSD.  Formulated to provide excellent degreasing for engine room cleaning chores with a unique focus on enhancing OWS operations – it can help increase processing capacities and improve OCM accuracies while assisting with federal compliance assurance.

As with our other L-44 Safer Choice products, OSD is certified by the EPA for direct release into the environment and assists with budget constraints by eliminating the expense of outside service companies. See our OSD product page for complete information.

  • “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.”

    Karl Berthelot
    Manager BMI Ste. Gen.

  • “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.”

    Bill Klingel
    Luhr Bros Inc. Marine Division

  • “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."

    Project Go Green

  • “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.”
