SHELL ADVANCE RACING M

SHELL ADVANCE RACING M


CASTOR BASED RACING OIL

DESIGNED TO MEET CHALLENGES

CONSUMER MOTORCYCLE OILS

Shell Advance Racing M is a castor based racing oil with synthetic components. It has been developed
especially for 2-stroke karts. It is also recommended for 4-stroke speedway motorcycles and other
engines burning alcohol. Shell Advance Racing M is a race proven technology (kart sport world
championship) and is not recommended for day to day road usage.

PERFORMANCE FEATURES
EXCEPTIONAL ENGINE PROTECTION
n Exceptional protection in the most severe racing conditions even
at the highest revving condition of 2-stroke karts. The unique
formulation based on castor oil and synthetic components
specifically tested for 2-stroke racing engines helps to prevent
scuffing, ring sticking and deposit formation, making the engine
reliable while maximising power output.
IMPROVED ACCELERATION AND POWER OUTPUT
n The ease of burning allows fast adaptation to mixture adjustment
helping to improve acceleration performance and power output
versus mineral oil. Also the very low ash content minimises spark
plug fouling, helping to keep their efficiency high.

SPECIFICATIONS, APPROVALS
AND RECOMMENDATIONS
Shell Advance Racing M has been kart sport world championship
proven.
Castor based oils like Shell Advance Racing M must NEVER be
mixed with conventional mineral oils.
IS APPROVED BY:
n FIM/FIA-CIK.
MEETS THE REQUIREMENTS OF:
n SAE J 300 30 viscosity grade.

APPLICATIONS
n

2-stroke karts with very high revving 2-stroke racing engines.

4-stroke speedway motorcycles.

Racing engines burning alcohol mixture.

Shell Advance Racing M is not ideally suited for on-road use.


Shell Advance Ultra 2 or Shell Advance VSX 2 or Scooter Plus 2 or
Scooter 2 are the preferred grades for on-road 2-stroke engines.
Shell Advance Racing M is non-diluted therefore it is suggested to
use it in premixing system with a mixing ratio of 1:16 for karts and
1:25 for motorcycles unless otherwise recommended by engine
manufacturer.
Shell Advance Racing M should not be used in outboard engines.
The appropriate Shell Nautilus Oil is recommended for this
application.

LONG FLUID LIFE-MAINTENANCE SAVING


n Thermally stable in modern hydraulic systems working in extreme
conditions of load and temperature. Shell Tellus S2 M are highly
resistant to degradation and sludge formation therefore improving
system reliability and cleanliness.

COMPATIBILITY


Resist
oxidation in the presence of air, water and copper. Turbine
Oil Stability Test (TOST) results show outstanding performance for
Shell Tellus S2 M; low acidity, low sludge formation, low copper
loss; therefore helping to extend oil drain interval life and reduce
maintenance costs.
Shell Tellus S2 M have good chemical stability in the presence of
moisture, which ensures long oil life and helps to reduce the risk of
corrosion and rusting.

OUTSTANDING WEAR PROTECTION


n Proven anti-wear additives are incorporated to be effective
throughout the range of operating conditions, including low and
severe duty high load conditions. Outstanding performance in a
range of piston and vane pump tests; including the tough Denison
T6C (dry and wet versions) and the demanding Vickers 35VQ25.
MAINTAINING SYSTEM EFFICIENCY
n Shell Tellus S2 M are suitable for ultra-fine filtration, an essential
requirement in todays hydraulic systems. Unaffected by the usual
products of contamination, such as water and calcium, which are
known to cause blockage of fine filters. Customers can use finer filters,
therefore achieving all the benefits of having in use cleaner fluids.
n

Shell Tellus S2 M possess high lubrication properties and excellent


low friction characteristics in hydraulic systems operating at
low or high speed. Helps prevent stick-slip problems in critical
applications enabling very fine control of machinery.

Careful use of additives to ensure quick air release without


excessive foaming. Quick air release helps minimise cavitation
and slow oxidation, maintaining system and fluid performance.

Good water separation properties (demulsibility). Helps resist the


formation of water-in-oil emulsions, to help avoid consequent
hydraulic system and pump damage.

Shell Tellus S2 V fluids are high performance hydraulic fluids that use Shells unique patented technology with
excellent viscosity control under both severe mechanical stress and across a wide range of temperatures.
They provide outstanding protection and performance in most mobile equipment and other applications
subjected to wider ranges of ambient or operating temperatures.
PERFORMANCE FEATURES
LONG FLUID LIFE MAINTENANCE SAVING
n Shell Tellus S2 V fluids help extend equipment maintenance intervals
by resisting thermal and chemical breakdown. This minimises
sludge formation and provides excellent performance in the industry
standard ASTM D 943 TOST test (Turbine Oil Stability Test).
n

Shell Tellus S2 V fluids also have good stability in the presence


of moisture, which ensures long fluid life and reduces the risk of
corrosion and rusting, particularly in moist or humid environments.


Highly
shear stable viscosity modifiers help minimise variations
in the fluid properties throughout the fluid drain interval.

OUTSTANDING WEAR PROTECTION


n Proven zinc-based anti-wear additives are incorporated to be
effective throughout the range of operating conditions, including
low load and severe duty high load conditions. Outstanding
performance in a range of piston and vane pump tests, including
the tough Denison T6C (dry and wet versions) and the demanding
Vickers 35VQ25, demonstrates how Shell Tellus S2 V fluids can
help system components last longer.
MAINTAINING SYSTEM EFFICIENCY

SHELL IRUS FLUID C

HFC TYPE FIRE-RESISTANT HYDRAULIC FLUID

DESIGNED TO MEET CHALLENGES

INDUSTRY HYDRAULIC FLUIDSFIRE RESISTENT

Shell Irus Fluid C is an advanced water-glycol fire resistant hydraulic fluid containing powerful additives
to enhance its anti-wear, anti-corrosion and anti-oxidation properties. The water content is approximately
40% by weight.

PERFORMANCE FEATURES

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

FIRE RESISTANT FOR HIGH RISK INSTALLATIONS


n As demonstrated in the 7th Luxembourg Report fire resistance
tests the product contributes significantly to reduce the fire risk
both in presence of flame and hot surfaces due to fire resistance
properties.

CONTROL OF WATER CONTENT

EXCELLENT COMPONENTS AND FLUID DURATION


n Reliable operation especially compared with fluids of older
technologies.
IMPROVED WEAR PERFORMANCES AGAINST
MINIMUM INDUSTRY STANDARD
n As demonstrated in the vane pump testing required by the 7th
Luxembourg Report the product offers significantly better
anti-wear performances than the minimum required by the
standard.

APPLICATIONS
Shell Irus Fluid C is particularly suitable for demanding hydraulic
applications where there is a high fire risk, such as those found in
the Mining and Metal Processing industries.
In order to reduce the water evaporation Shell Irus Fluid C, as for all
the ISO HFC type of fluids, should be used below 55C with
a suggested maximum temperature of 45C.

COMPATIBILITY AND MISCIBILITY


LUBRICATION AND COMPONENT LIFE
In general, water-glycol fluids are less effective bearing lubricants
than petroleum mineral hydraulic oils, but are entirely satisfactory in
systems containing pumps with plain bearings or lightly loaded ball
and roller bearings. However, in common with other water-based
fluids a reduction in bearing life can be expected. This will normally
be included in the derating made by the pump manufacturer.

Water content should be controlled within 35% to 45% by weight.


Condensate or de-ionized water should be used for any additions,
which should be made slowly while the fluid is circulating.
CONVERSION FROM OTHER TYPES OF FLUIDS
Specific attention should be given in case of converting to Shell Irus
Fluid C systems that were previously using lubricants of different types
than ISO HFC (e.g. mineral oils or ISO HFDU type of products).
In such a case it is suggested you seek advice from your Shell
representative about the change over procedure you should follow.

PERFORMANCE FEATURES

COMPATIBILITY AND MISCIBILITY

LONG OIL LIFEMAINTENANCE SAVING


n Allows the service interval between valve and piston maintenance
to be extended over normal service practices due to low deposits
forming tendencies. Compressors can be kept in service for much
longer periods, operating at a consistently high level of efficiency.

SEAL COMPATIBILITY

ENHANCED AIRLINES SAFETY


n In discharge air-lines, the combination of rust particles, dispersed in
carbonaceous deposits, coupled with heat from recently compressed
air, can cause an exothermic reaction leading to the possibility
of fires and explosion. Shell Corena S2 P helps to minimise the
likelihood of this danger arising.
MAINTENANCE SYSTEM EFFICIENCY
n Resistant to the formation of carbon deposits and lacquer on
valves and piston crowns, caused by the by-products of corrosion,
such as ferric oxides and hydroxides, at high working temperatures
and pressures. Such deposits can cause serious damage, lower
compressor efficiency and increase maintenance costs.
n


Shell
Corena S2 P separates readily from water allowing excess
water to be drained from the oil circulation system, thus preventing
accelerated corrosion and a reduction in lubrication efficiency.
This also helps to separate oil from condensate in oil/water
separators and drier units.

OUTSTANDING WEAR PROTECTION


n Effectively protects all metal surfaces from corrosion. Protects all
sensitive machinery parts (e.g. housings, valves, bearings, from
wear to help prolong the service intervals).

APPLICATIONS
RECIPROCATING AIR COMPRESSORS
n Industrial reciprocating air compressors operating with air discharge
temperatures of up to 220C.
BREATHING AIR COMPRESSORS

PERFORMANCE FEATURES

APPLICATIONS

LONG OIL LIFEMAINTENANCE SAVING


n Shell Corena S3 R will allow for significant increases in oil drain
intervals (compared to basic mineral compressor oil), where

them to move freely. Also resists deposit formation on rotating
components of screw compressors. As a consequence high levels
of compressor efficiency can be maintained for long periods in
both types of compressor.

Depending
on intake air quality, duty cycle and ambient
conditions, especially hot and humid type climates as found
in the Asian and Pacific regions, a reduced oil drain period is
recommended.

INDUSTRY COMPRESSOR OILS

Shell Corena S4 P is an advanced reciprocating air compressor lubricant and is based on specially
selected synthetic ester fluids. It incorporates the latest additive technology to provide outstanding
performance.

PERFORMANCE FEATURES

COMPATIBILITY AND MISCIBILITY

LONG OIL LIFEMAINTENANCE SAVING


n Developed specifically for heavy-duty reciprocating air
compressors. This includes reciprocating air compressors
subjected to overloading, intermittent or continuous operation.
Shell Corena S4 P is designed to provide safe, reliable and
effective lubrication for extended service periods where mineral
compressor lubricants are unsatisfactory.

SEAL COMPATIBILITY
n Shell Corena S4 P, in common with other ester-based lubricants,
is not compatible with all seal materials, and some older compressors
may need to have the seals changed before they can be run on
the new grades.

The extreme low tendency for deposit build-up ensures continued


high compressor performance over long periods. It enables the
normal valve maintenance period, typically between 250 and
1,000 hours of operation using conventional mineral oils, to be
extended to 2,000, or even 4,000 hours.

ENHANCED OF AIR LINE SAFETY


n The absence of deposit formation has a very important safety
related benefit. In discharge air-lines, the combination of rust
particles, dispersed in carbonaceous deposits, coupled with heat
from recently compressed air, can cause an exothermic reaction
leading to the possibility of fires and explosion. Shell Corena S4 P
helps to minimise the likelihood of this danger arising.
OUSTANDING WEAR PROTECTION
n Effectively protects all metal surfaces from corrosion. Protects all
sensitive machinery parts (e.g. gears, screws, bearings, from wear
to help and prolong the service intervals).
MAINTAINING SYSTEM EFFICIENCY
n Resistant to the formation of carbon deposits and lacquer on
valves and piston crowns, caused by the by-products of corrosion
such as ferric oxides and hydroxides, at high working temperatures
and pressures. Such deposits can cause serious damage, lower
compressor efficiency and increase maintenance costs.
n


Separates
readily from water preventing accelerated corrosion
and facilitating separation from condensate.

APPLICATIONS
RECIPROCATING AIR COMPRESSORS
n All industrial reciprocating air compressors, in particular up to and
above air discharge temperatures of 220C with continuous high
delivery pressures.
BREATHING AIR COMPRESSORS
n Shell Corena S4 P may be used in breathing air compressors,
provided subsidiary clean-up apparatus is used to ensure that
the air produced is fit for breathing.

MISCIBILITY
n Shell Corena S4 P oils are fully miscible with mineral oils,
although dilution with mineral lubricants will markedly reduce
its performance.

SHELL TURBO OILS T

HIGH QUALITY INDUSTRIAL STEAM AND GAS TURBINE OIL

DESIGNED TO MEET CHALLENGES

PERFORMANCE FEATURES
STRONG CONTROL OF OXIDATION
n The use of inherently oxidatively stable base oils together with an
effective inhibitor package provides high resistance to oxidative
degradation. The result is extended oil life, minimising the formation
of aggressive corrosive acids, deposits and sludge, helping to
reduce your operating costs.
HIGH RESISTANCE TO FOAMING AND RAPID AIR
RELEASE
n The oils are formulated with a non-silicone anti-foam additive,
which generally controls foam formation. This feature coupled
with fast air-release from the lubricant reduces the possibility of
problems such as pump cavitation, excessive wear and premature
oil oxidation, helping to give you increased system reliability.
POSITIVE WATER-SHEDDING PROPERTIES
n Robust demulsibility control such that excess water, common-place
in steam turbines, can be drained easily from the lubrication system,
minimising corrosion and premature wear and lowering the risk of
unplanned maintenance.
EXCELLENT RUST AND CORROSION PROTECTION
n Helps prevent the formation of rust and guards against onset of
corrosion ensuring protection for equipment following exposure
to humidity or water during operation and during shut-downs,
minimising maintenance.
RESISTANT TO REACTION WITH AMMONIA
n The use of highly refined base oils and specific additives, resistant
to attack by ammonia, minimises the possibility of damaging oil
soluble/insoluble ammonia compounds being formed in the lubricant.
Shell Turbo Oils T mitigates the formation of these deposits, which
could impair the reliable operation of bearings and seal oil systems.

APPLICATIONS
Shell Turbo T oils are available in ISO grades 32, 46, 68
and 100 suited for application in the following areas:
n

Non-geared industrial steam turbines.

Non-geared light duty gas turbines.

Water turbine lubrication.

Compressor applications.

Numerous applications where strong control over rust


and oxidation is required.

INDUSTRY TURBINE OILS

Shell Turbo Oils T has long been regarded as the industry standard turbine oil. Building on this reputation,
Shell Turbo Oils T have been developed to meet the demands of the most modern non-geared steam
turbine systems and light duty gas turbines. Shell Turbo Oils T are formulated from high quality hydrotreated
base oils and a combination of zinc-free additives that provide excellent oxidative stability, protection
against rust and corrosion, low foaming and excellent demulsibility.

DESIGNED TO MEET CHALLENGES

INDUSTRY GEAR OILS

Shell Omala S4 WE is an advanced synthetic heavy-duty industrial worm drive gear oil formulated
using specially selected polyalkylene glycol base fluids and additives. It offers outstanding lubrication
performance under severe operating conditions, including improved energy efficiency, long service
life and high resistance to micro-pitting.

PERFORMANCE FEATURES
LONG OIL LIFE MAINTENANCE SAVING
n Shell Omala S4 WE is formulated to provide excellent oxidation
and thermal stability, extending lubricant life and resisting the
formation of harmful oxidation products at high operating
temperatures. This helps maintain system cleanliness over
extended maintenance intervals.
n

This performance is recognised by Flender AG where a formal


approval for 20,000 hours (four years) at 80C (bulk oil
temperature) usage has been granted.


Shell
Omala S4 WE offers the potential to extend service intervals
significantly compared to conventional industrial gear oils.

EXCELLENT WEAR PROTECTION


n Shell Omala S4 WE is formulated to have excellent load carrying
capacity providing long component life even under shock loading
conditions. It also has a high resistance to
micro-pitting. These features provide benefits over mineral
oil-based products in terms of gear and bearing component life.
MAINTAINING SYSTEM EFFICIENCY
n Shell Omala S4 WE offers improved energy efficiency and lower
operating temperatures in worm gear applications. Rig testing
has shown efficiency improvements of up to 15% in comparison
with mineral oil-based products and 11% over other synthetic
hydrocarbon-based lubricants. These results have been confirmed
by OEM testing and field experience.

APPLICATIONS
ENCLOSED INDUSTRIAL WORM GEAR SYSTEMS
n Recommended for industrial worm gear reduction systems
operating under severe operating conditions, such as high load,
very low or elevated temperatures and wide temperature variations.

SEAL AND PAINT COMPATIBILITY


High quality epoxy paints are recommended, as polyalkylene
glycols will tend to attack certain conventional paints. Shell Omala
S4 WE has been found to be satisfactory with nitrile and Viton seal
materials, although Viton seals are preferred.

CHANGE-OVER PROCEDURE
Shell Omala S4 WE contains polyalkylene glycols and is not
compatible with mineral oils or most other synthetic lubricant types.
Care should be taken when changing from such products to
Shell Omala S4 WE. The system should be flushed with the
minimum quantity of Shell Omala S4 WE, operating under no load
and draining while warm. Ideally, seals exposed to mineral oils
should also be replaced. Inspect the lubricant after a few days use.
Ensure that oil systems are clean and free from contamination.
Shell Omala S4 WE is also not miscible with some other polyalkylene
glycols, so caution is needed when topping-up. Generally the
preference is to avoid mixtures by draining and refilling.

SPECIFICATIONS, APPROVALS
AND RECOMMENDATIONS
MEETS THE FOLLOWING SPECIFICATIONS:
n Association of American Railways AAR M - 942 (Revised 1992).

n The lithium/calcium mixed soap thickener gives the grease superior
water resistance and is combined with anti-corrosion additives to
further enhance protection of bearing surfaces.

TYPICAL PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS

PROLONGED GREASE SERVICE LIFE


n Shell Gadus Rail S3 AAR AP resists hardening or softening due
to its excellent mechanical stability and therefore lubricates for
hundreds of thousands of kilometres in railroad bearings without the
need for re-lubrication.
SIMPLIFIED INVENTORY
n The overall superior performance of Shell Gadus Rail S3 AAR AP
means it can be used to rationalise grease stocks to one railroad
axle bearing grease for all bearing types.

APPLICATIONS
The Association of American Railways (AAR) have developed a
grease specification AAR M-942 (Revised 1992), designed to
eliminate field lubrication, so that they only have to grease bearings
when rail cars are brought to the shop for wheel repair. This
practice requires a grease capable of performing in the bearings for
hundreds of thousands of kilometres or up to 10 years, without the
need for re-lubrication.

PREMIUM QUALITY INDUSTRIAL BEARING GREASE

RECOMMENDED REPLACEMENT FOR SHELL STAMINA RL

DESIGNED TO MEET CHALLENGES

INDUSTRY GREASE

Shell Gadus S3 T100 is a high technology grease designed to give optimum performance for grease
lubrication in industrial bearings. Shell Gadus S3 T100 is based on mineral oil with a special diurea
thickener to give long life, low wear and shear-stable properties at high temperatures.

PERFORMANCE FEATURES
Outstanding life at high temperatures

RE-LUBRICATION

n
n

Excellent wear protection

Excellent mechanical stability at high temperatures

Excellent oxidation resistance

Good protection against false brinnelling

Grease life varies considerably from application to application,


even with bearings operating under normally identical conditions.
Variables such as air flow, dirt and humidity can have a
considerable effect in addition to the more commonly recognised
parameters of load, speed and temperature.

Low oil separation

Excellent corrosion resistance

Provides protection from the elements of corrosion

Versatile

Water resistant

Withstands washing with water, preventing loss of protection.

HIGH TEMPERATURE PERFORMANCE


n The diurea thickener used in Shell Gadus S3 T100 has a high
melting point and the grease performance is limited only by the
properties of the base oil and additive components.
n

 low volatility and excellent oxidation stability of the base oil


The
are such they give an excellent service life in bearings operating
between -20C and 150C. With caution, Shell Gadus S3
T100 may, in some circumstances, be used at temperatures up to
180C, but only if the re-lubrication period is suitably adjusted.

CORROSION PROTECTION
n When a bearing is running, most high quality greases can
maintain an adequate lubricating film even when the grease is
loaded with water. However, when the grease bearing is idle,
corrosion may occur causing pitting which can be destructive.
Shell Gadus S3 T100 are formulated with corrosion inhibitors
to help protect bearing surfaces even when the grease is
contaminated with water.
n

The lubrication properties of Shell Gadus S3 T100 have been


used very successfully in slow moving, loaded large bearings
such as those found in continuous casters in steel plants.

The use of Shell Gadus S3 T100 usually permits considerable


extension of the re-lubrication interval.

OXIDATION STABILITY
Shell Gadus S3 T100 have a high temperature oxidation inhibitor
system to help ensure that they will withstand high operating
temperatures without forming deposits. Unlike the soap thickeners
used in most greases, the diurea thickener in Shell Gadus S3 T100
does not catalyse grease oxidation, indeed the diurea thickener
offers inherent anti-oxidant properties. This contributes to longer
grease life at higher temperatures.
The base oil component of Shell Gadus S3 T100 is a specially
selected high viscosity index mineral oil with excellent oxidation
and evaporation resistance.

SEALING
The rheology of Shell Gadus S3 T100 is such that at low shear
rates and with heating the consistency increases. Consequently,
in bearings operating at high temperatures the grease remains in
place providing good sealing and continuous lubrication even in the
presence of vibration.

WATER WASHOUT
Shell Gadus S3 T100 exhibits very good resistance to water
washout by immersion or spray.

Shell Gadus S4 OG Clear Oil 20000 is an advanced part-synthetic, non-bitumastic viscous lubricant
specifically developed to satisfy the demands of heavily loaded open gearing.

PERFORMANCE FEATURES

RE-GREASING INTERVALS

HIGH VISCOSITY
n The very high viscosity of Shell Gadus S4 OG Clear Oil 20000
has been achieved by combining synthetic oil with thickening
effect and high viscosity mineral oils. The use of synthetic oil with
thickening effect has also produced a lubricant with high viscosity
index, which provides good pumpability at low temperatures
while maintaining high viscosity at elevated temperatures.

For bearings operating near their maximum recommended temperatures,


re-greasing intervals should be reviewed.

SHELL GADUS S5 T100

ADVANCED MULTI-PURPOSE GREASE


PREVIOUSLY SHELL STAMINA RLS

DESIGNED TO MEET CHALLENGES

INDUSTRY GREASE

Shell Gadus S5 T100 Greases are a very high technology grease designed to give optimum performance
for grease lubrication in industrial bearings.
It based on synthetic oil with a special diurea thickener to give long life, low wear and shear-stable
properties at high temperatures.

PERFORMANCE FEATURES
Outstanding life at high temperatures

CORROSION PROTECTION

n
n

Excellent wear protection

Excellent mechanical stability at high temperatures

Excellent oxidation resistance

Low oil separation

When a bearing is running, most high quality greases can maintain


an adequate lubricating film even when the grease is contaminated
with water. However, when the grease bearing is idle corrosion
may occur causing pitting which can be detrimental. Shell Gadus
S5 T100 is formulated with corrosion inhibitors to help protect
bearing surfaces even when the grease is contaminated by water.

Versatile.

EXCELLENT CORROSION RESISTANCE


n Provides protection from the elements of corrosion.
WATER RESISTANT
n Withstands washing with water, preventing loss of protection.

APPLICATIONS

The lubrication properties of Shell Gadus S5 T100 are unimpaired


by small quantities of salt water.
Grease life varies considerably from application to application,
even with bearings operating under nominally identical conditions.
Variables such as air flow, dirt and humidity can have a considerable
effect in addition to the more commonly recognised parameters of
load, speed and temperature.

Shell Gadus S5 T100 Greases are particularly recommended


for use in high temperature up to 180C, lightly loaded industrial
bearings. It is recommended for use where long operational life
and extended re-greasing intervals are an important consideration.

The use of Shell Gadus S5 T100 usually permits considerable


extension of the re-lubrication interval.

HIGH TEMPERATURE PERFORMANCE

The rheology of Shell Gadus S5 T100 is such that at low shear rates
and with heating the consistency increases. Consequently, in bearings
operating at high temperatures the grease remains in place providing
good sealing and continuous lubrication even in the presence of vibration.

The diurea thickener used in Shell Gadus S5 T100 has a high


melting point and the grease performance is limited only by the
properties of the base oil and additive components.
The low volatility and excellent oxidation stability of the base oil
are such that they give an excellent service life in bearings
operating between 40C and 180C.
With caution, Shell Gadus S5 T100 Greases may, in some
circumstances, be used at temperatures up to 200C, but
only if the re-lubrication period is suitably adjusted.

SEALING

WATER WASHOUT
Shell Gadus S5 T100 exhibits very good resistance to water
washout by immersion or spray.

TYPICAL PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS


CHARACTERISTICS

Colour

Brown

Shell Gadus S5 T100 has a superior high temperature oxidation


inhibitor system to ensure that it will withstand high operating
temperatures without forming deposits. Unlike the soap thickeners
used in most greases, the diurea thickener in Shell Gadus S5 T100
does not catalyse grease oxidation, indeed the diurea thickener
offers inherent anti-oxidant properties. This contributes to longer
grease life at higher temperatures.

Shell Heat Transfer Oil S2 is based on carefully selected, highly refined mineral oils chosen for their
ability to provide superior performance in indirect closed fluid heat transfer systems.

PERFORMANCE FEATURES

ADVICE

EXTENDED MAINTENANCE INTERVALS


n Shell Heat Transfer Oil S2 is based on carefully selected highly
refined mineral oils and resists oil cracking, oxidation and
thickening. This provides extended oil life, provided efficient fluid
heating and good pump circulation is ensured, such that film
temperatures on the heater surface do not exceed the limits above.

 life of Shell Heat Transfer Oil S2 depends on the design


The
and usage of the system. If the system is well designed and not
subjected to abnormal workloads, the life can be for many years.

It is important to monitor oil condition regularly as rates of change


in physical characteristics are more significant than actual values.
The properties that should be monitored are viscosity, acidity, flash
point (open and closed) and insolubles content.

SYSTEM EFFICIENCY
n Low viscosity enables excellent fluidity and heat transfer over
a wide temperature range.
n

Shell Heat Transfer Oil S2 also has a low vapour pressure so resists
cracking. This minimises the formation of volatile decomposition
products; these would require recovery via expansion chamber and
condensate collector.

WEAR PROTECTION
n Shell Heat Transfer Oil S2 is non-corrosive and has high solvency;
this helps to reduce deposit formation by holding oxidation
products in solution and keeping internal surfaces of heat
exchangers clean.

APPLICATIONS
ENCLOSED CIRCULATED HEAT TRANSFER SYSTEMS
n For industrial applications such as process industry, chemical
plants, textile producers and in household equipment such as oil
filled radiators.

Owing to the surface wetting properties of Shell Naturelle HF-E, if


systems were previously operated using a mineral oil hydraulic fluid,
deposits formed in the system during operation may be loosened
and deposited in system filters. The filters should therefore be
checked at regular intervals after fluid changeover.
SEAL AND PAINT COMPATIBILITY

normally specified for use with petroleum mineral oils. Certain
plastics and industrial adhesives may be adversely affected and
advice should be sought from the respective manufacturers.

SHELL VSI 8235 (CONCENTRATE)

SHELL VSI 8235 (CONCENTRATE)


PROTECTS AGAINST RUSTING IN ENCLOSED VAPOUR SPACES

DESIGNED TO MEET CHALLENGES

INDUSTRY CORROSION PREVENTATIVE

Shell VSI 8235 (Concentrate) is an oil soluble concentrate that has the ability to protect steel surfaces
which are above the normal oil level in a system e.g. the vapour spaces in an oil storage tank or the oil
reservoir in a circulation system.

PERFORMANCE FEATURES

APPLICATIONS

Shell VSI 8235 (Concentrate) is an oil soluble concentrate that has the
ability to protect steel surfaces which are above the normal oil level
in a system the vapour spaces in an oil storage tank or the oil
reservoir in a circulation system would be examples.


Shell
VSI 8235 (Concentrate) contains polar materials which
are both oil soluble and also volatile. Thus, as Shell VSI 8235
(Concentrate) is in circulation, the vapour spaces in a system
are continuously kept filled with the VSI vapour which is formed
by these inhibitors and this vapour continuously blankets metal
surfaces to protect them from corrosion.
Shell VSI 8235 (Concentrate) should be added to the lubricant
contained in the sump or in the oil tank a few hours before the
equipment is stopped. For new pieces of equipment which will
be stored after trial, the lubricant/Shell VSI 8235 (Concentrate)
mixture could be totally or partially drained out after the trial run
provided however, that a small quantity of mixture is kept in the
sump. If the oil temperature remains lower than 25C, the distance
between the upper internal surfaces to be protected and the oil
level in the machine must be less than two metres.
 anti-corrosion performance of the lubricant/Shell VSI 8235
The
(Concentrate) mixture and the durability of the protection provided
are dependent on the degree of ventilation of the system and the
oil temperature. The performance can be improved by raising the
oil temperature before stopping the equipment and by sealing the
vents of the machine concerned.

 internal protection of large oil tanks will be improved by


The
brushing or spraying the surfaces to be protected with the
lubricant/Shell VSI 8235 (Concentrate) mixture.

Shell VSI 8235 (Concentrate) has no detrimental effects on the


individual and special properties of the lubricant to which it is
added. The mixture can be used as the service lubricant when the
equipment is returned to or put in operation.

Shell VSI 8235 (Concentrate) is recommended for use in all


enclosed oil lubrication systems where rusting is likely to occur
because of the presence of steam condensate or atmospheric
moisture in the system.
TYPICAL APPLICATIONS ARE:
n Oil lubricated rolling bearing and gear housings, reservoirs,
oil piping, and similar circulation system components.
n


Machine
tool housings where the machines may be idle over
a weekend or for even longer periods of time.


Steam
turbine lubrication systems where corrosion of oil gravity
tanks or oil storage tank walls and overheads is occurring.


Any
machinery that is actually idle or in intermittent use and which
is therefore susceptible to rusting because the oil in use gradually
drains down from internal surfaces.

RECOMMENDED DOSAGE
Shell VSI 8235 is recommended for use at 2% volume solution and
is added to the existing oil already in the equipment. It should not
be used at higher concentrations as this may result in equipment
damage.

It is mainly used for the lubrication of stern tube bearingsand protection of tail shafts in systems
incorporating lip seal stern tube glands, but also some face seals.

PERFORMANCE FEATURES

APPLICATIONS

COST EFFECTIVENESS
n Shell Strombus MP absorbs high amounts of seawater. There is no
need to reduce the concentration of seawater emulsified in the oil
until it reaches levels of over 20%.

The large majority of ships today are fitted with oil lubricated stern
tubes. The stern tube bearings and the tail shaft are required to
operate reliably, often in extreme conditions due to vibration, water
ingress, flexing of the vessels structure, movement of the vessel in
heavy seas and with variations of speed and temperature.

HELPS MINIMISE RISKS OF WATER INGRESS


n Water is absorbed to form a stable emulsion which continues to
offer good lubrication and protection against corrosion. The oil
and its emulsion are sufficiently fluid to circulate around the stern
tube bearing oil system.
HIGH LEVEL OF PROTECTION
n Its unique combination of base oils and carefully selected
additives, give good emulsibility while offering a high level of
protection to the metal surfaces, in the presence of water.

Shell Strombus MP is specifically designed to be compatible with


diesel engine oils used for stern tube lubrication. It is also suitable for

RAPID LUBES ANALYST (RLA)

Shell Marine Products offers all its customers worldwide a complete range of oil analysis services,
giving you peace of mind that your lubricants are doing their job and helping ensure your engines and
machinery do not suffer unexpected problems.

By testing the lubricants in your machinery we can reveal critical


information about the health of your equipment, helping you:
n

Detect possible future mechanical problems before they occur.

Avoid unexpected breakdowns and expensive down time.

Retain the oil charge until it really needs changing.

Develop a greater understanding of equipment performance.

Reduce monitoring and maintenance costs.

No wonder Classification Societies, such as Lloyds Register, endorse


regular analysis of used oil as a significant factor in the long-term
health of machinery.
INFORMATION YOU NEED TO KNOW
Lubricants are an integral part of your engines and machinery. But
their ability to lubricate and clean is heavily dependent on their
condition. And because they are in intimate contact with the most
highly stressed components, lubricants carry a lot of information that
can help you reduce the risk of sudden breakdowns.

The Shell Rapid Lubricants Analyst


(RLA) service is designed to give
ship managers and operators vital
information and advice on the
condition of their lubricants and
machinery-quickly, efficiently and
reliably, with minimum effort from
their staff.
UNRIVALLED EXPERIENCE
We believe Shell RLA is the longest-established and most thorough
lubricants analysis service available in the industry, and, with
thousands of customers around the world reliant on the Shell RLA
service, we are proud of the depth and breadth of our knowledge
and experience. In particular, the regular submission of samples
over the years has enabled us to establish historical data trends that
enable our experts to readily determine whether particular results are
normal.

RAPID RESPONSE
We have four laboratories worldwide and we use highly automated
test methods linked directly to a central data processor. This means
all Shell RLA results are supplied quickly, efficiently and reliably.
In the event of any abnormal results being detected, we send you
emergency advice immediately.
EXPERIENCE MAKES THE DIFFERENCE
All sample reports detected as abnormal are received by our own
team of specialist diagnosticians. The team are all experienced
marine engineers who understand the shipboard operations and
how it can impact machinery operation. This enables them to give
well founded advice on the oil and machine condition.
CLEAR REPORTS THROUGH SHELL RLA OPICA
All our reports have a simple, clear layout so you can quickly and
easily understand the results, comments and any necessary advice.
Our tool, Shell RLA Opica, stores and manages Shell RLA data so
users can analyse trends and problems more thoroughly than ever
before. With historical data going back more than 20 years, and
the international backup of Shells experienced analysts, the answer
to any question is never far away.

WHY CHOOSE SHELL RLA?


A COMPLETE PACKAGE THAT MEETS ALL YOUR NEEDS
Shell RLA is our standard oil analysis service, supplying a range of
information including metals content. Analysis reports can either be
sent by email or posted.
Only a 50ml sample is required, making it easy to airmail samples
directly to the laboratory we even supply the sampling bottles,
labels and pre-addressed envelopes!
SHELL ONBOARD PLUS
This extensive kit tests five important parameters of lubricating
oil performance, including water in oil, insoluble material, TBN,
viscosity, and salt water contamination. We have designed Shell
Onboard Plus to supplement the comprehensive laboratory based
oil analysis service provided by Shell RLA. Although the results will
not be as accurate as those obtained from a Shell laboratory, they
will help to confirm instantly that the oils are in good condition, and
that your equipment is well protected.

WEAR PARTICLE INDEX


Wear Particle Index helps us to tell you more about your
machine, regardless of type. From super clean hyrdrualic
power systems to the hardest working diesel engines,
WPI can make the difference between timely shut down
or costly breakdown.
WPI is derived from a test that measures the amount of
paramagnetic material in a sample.The most common
paramagnetic material found in oil samples from marine
machinery is iron, therefore WPI correlates very closely to
the metallic iron content in a sample regardless of particle
size.

FIVE SIMPLE STEPS TO PEACE OF MIND

If the WPI increases at a rate greater than normal


compared to Fe by ICP spectroscopy, this indicates
increasing quantities of iron particles with sizes greater
than three microns. This should be taken as a warning that
abnormal wear may be occuring in the machine.
If the WPI increases at a rate less than normal compared
to iron by spectroscopy, this indicates the presence of
non-metallic iron. Corrosion salts and most iron oxides are
non-magnetic.

STORAGE AND HANDLING OF LUBRICANTS

DESIGNED TO MEET CHALLENGES

STORAGE AND HANDLING OF LUBRICANTS

STORING LUBRICANTS
Packages containing lubricants should, whenever possible, be stored
under cover where they will not be exposed to the action of the weather.
Small packages such as tins should always be kept in covered storage,
as should any package, whatever its size, once it has been opened
and its contents partially used. When the outside storage of unopened
drums is unavoidable, certain simple precautions must be observed.

When oil is stored in bulk it is probable that water or condensation


will accumulate and fine dust find its way into the tanks with the
result that, eventually, a layer of sludge-like material builds up at the
bottom of the tanks and leads, in time, to contamination of the oil.
Consequently, it is advisable to have storage tanks fitted with dished
or sloping bottoms provided with drain cocks, which will enable
dregs to be drawn off periodically. Where practicable, bulk storage
tanks should periodically be cleaned out.

The drums should preferably be stored on their sides with bungs at


3 oclock and 9 oclock and wooden dunnage or runners should
be used to keep them clear of the ground and to prevent rusting of
the undersides. They should never be stacked directly on a surface
containing clinker, which is particularly corrosive to metal. The
drums at each end of a stack must be securely wedged to prevent
movement. Regular inspection should be carried out with a view to
the detection of leaks and to make sure that identification markings
remain clear and legible.

Insofar as greases are concerned, the drums must, of necessity, have


a large opening and, to avoid as far as possible the entry of dirt and
water, it is important that the lid or cover should always be replaced
firmly and securely as soon as requirements have been taken.

If, for any reason, drums have to be stored on their ends, they
should be raised off the ground and stored upside down (i.e. with
the bungs at the bottom). Failing this, they should be tilted so that
rain water cannot collect round and submerge the bungs. Water
contamination is undesirable, whatever the grade of lubricant, and
it is not always realised that moisture can enter a drum through what
appears to be a perfectly sound bung.

The benefits of good, clean storage can be largely nullified if a


lubricant becomes contaminated in transit from the store to the
machines. The containers used for transporting lubricants on a site
and for the storage of small working quantities must be kept clean
and should be provided with lids to prevent the entry of dust and
dirt. They should be washed periodically with petrol, care being
taken to mop and dry them before using them again.

A drum standing in the open is subjected to the heat of the day and,
of course, cools down again at night. This results in expansion and
contraction of the contents with the effect that the air in the space
above the oil level is subjected, during the day, to slightly higher
than atmospheric pressure and, at night, to slight vacuum. These
changes in pressure may be sufficiently great to cause a pumping
action, known as breathing, in which air is forced out the drum
during the day and drawn into it at night. If, therefore, the bungs
through which this breathing takes place are surrounded by water,
some of this water may be sucked into the drum and, in the course
of time, quite considerable quantities may accumulate.

Similarly, funnels and other pieces of apparatus must always be kept


scrupulously clean, rags and wipers being used for this purpose.
Cotton waste or woollen rags should not be used as they tend to leave
behind fibres which will eventually find their way into machinery and
impair the flow of oil.

Once the seals have been broken and packages have been opened,
there is always a danger that, unless the packages are kept properly
closed when not in use, impurities such as dust, sand and fibre may
enter them. Such contaminants, eventually finding their way into
machinery, can cause damage or abrasion or, by blocking oilways,
can result in a complete breakdown due to lack of lubrication.
An oil drum, or other package, should never be opened by cutting
a large hole in it or by completely removing one end, since, even if
the hole is kept covered by, for example, a wooden or metal lid, the
chances of contamination are greatly increased. Similarly, it is a bad
practice to dip an open container into the oil since, not only does this
allow dust to enter, but the outside of the dipper itself may be dirty.
Drums of oil should, therefore, be placed on their sides on wooden
cradles of convenient height and the oil dispensed by means of a
tap under which a drip tray is placed. Alternatively, a drum may be
stood on its end and the oil withdrawn by means of a hand pump,
the pump intake being inserted into the large bung-hole.

Extremes of temperature are not good for lubricants. They should not
be stored in any unduly warm place; equally, it is not wise to leave
them for long periods in conditions of extreme cold.

HANDLING LUBRICANTS

It is advisable to have separate, clearly marked containers of each


grade of oil or grease so the contamination of one with another
does not take place.
Used and dirty oil should be put into special containers and stored
in separate, clearly labelled receptacles unit until disposed of. Every
precaution must be taken to see that used lubricants are not allowed
to contaminate fresh oils and greases.
In general, cleanliness precautions are even more important with
grease than with oil. There is always the chance that impurities in oil
may sink to the bottom of the tank or container out of harms way;
with grease this cannot happen and any grit or other contaminant
which gets into the grease is bound to find its way into lubricators
and machinery sooner or later.
Grease is more susceptible than oil to the effects of temperature
and temperature cyclings. High temperature or prolonged exposure
to even moderately high temperatures (e.g. tropical sunshine) may
cause oil to separate out with the result that the grease loses some
of its lubricating properties. Petrolatum (petroleum jelly) and certain
types of grease can be made liquid by heating and, on cooling,
will regain their former condition; but these are exceptions and most
greases will be ruined if treated in this way. Never, therefore, heat a
grease to make it fluid.

166
These characteristics are typical of current production. While future production will conform to Shells specification, variations in these characteristics may occur.

APPENDIX 1

SHELL AUSTRALIA LUBRICANTS PRODUCT DATA GUIDE 2012

Each operator should know which grades of lubricant are recommended


for the equipment in his/her charge and supplies of the correct lubricants
and the handling equipment should be readily available to him.

Increased consumption is quite often the first sign that a machine is


in need of repair, or that its lubricating system requires adjustments;
on the other hand, it may mean over-lubrication by the operator.

PERSONAL HYGIENE
Shell lubricants are quite safe to use provided ordinary care is taken to
minimise skin contamination and to avoid breathing oil mist or vapours.
However, prolonged improper use can cause dermatitis or other skin
conditions or even, where heavy contamination occurs over many
years, skin cancer.
Those at risk are people who use oils every day over periods of
months or years, not those who work with oils only very occasionally.
The risks can be avoided by carrying out the following simple health
precautions.For advice contact a Poisons Information Centre:

SPECIAL OILS AND COMPOUNDS


The types of oil which have been associated overseas with skin
disorders appear to be those which have been lightly refined and
which contain relatively more polynuclear aromatic compounds. Oils
of this type are used in rubber processing. Particular care should be
taken in these cases.
WHEN WORKING REGULARLY WITH MINERAL OILS
FOLLOW THESE SIMPLE RULES
 REDUCE skin contamination by mineral oils to the minimum and
n
avoid breathing their mists or vapours.
n PROTECT the skin by using suitable clothing and barrier creams.
n CLEAN the skin thoroughly if contaminated with oil.
n

CARE for the skin properly.

WEAR clean intact clothes.

AVOIDING CONTACT WITH MINERAL OILS


Contact with mineral oils should be kept to a minimum by
using effective splash guards and correct work methods. Good
maintenance should be practised so as to avoid oil-soaked
floors or benches.
Where cutting oils are used, these should be changed at
regular intervals to minimise contamination with abrasive metal
particles or bacteria. To keep circulating oil as free as possible
of abrasive particles, filter and sumps should be regularly
inspected and cleaned out.
Minimise mist and vapour generation. If this cannot be done,
use proper ventilation to keep the breathing zone concentration of
oil mist below the recommended maximum concentration in air of
5mg per cubic metre of air.

STORAGE AND HANDLING OF LUBRICANTS

As lubricants are dispensed, the quantities should be measured and


a record maintained. Store room records should show the quantities
issued and the records should be kept for each machine or unit. By
this means, regular checks can be made on consumptions and any
marked changes noted. These should be investigated at once.

APPENDIX 1

The lubrication of machinery should be supervised by a responsible


person and should be made a routine procedure. For instance,
when a machine requires oil-can applications daily, it should
become routine to do this job each morning before commencing
to use the machine. Where grease lubrication is called for weekly,
this should be done, for instance, first thing Monday morning or last
thing before shutting down for the weekend.

PERSONAL PROTECTION
To minimise skin contamination by oils, wear protective gloves
and aprons and suitable outer overalls. Where soluble oil
concentrates are used, wear goggles or face visors.
Protective clothing should be cleaned at regular intervals to
remove oil. It is most important to avoid wearing oil-soaked
clothing, and hands should be cleaned with disposable wipes
which should not be kept in overall or trouser pockets after use.
Gloves can become contaminated on the inside and when
worn again they bring the skin into close and repeated contact
with oil. A system of regular and frequent changing and cleaning
of all protective clothing is the best safeguard.
Where contamination with mineral oils occurs regularly at work,
for example, when using soluble cutting oils with high-speed
machinery, it is necessary to give more rigorous attention to
adequate laundering and regular changes of clothing and
underclothing. To avoid soiling of clean clothing, contaminated
clothing should be stored separately from street clothing.

CLEANSING THE SKIN


Oil should not be left on the skin for any prolonged period of
time, particularly if mineral oils are used every day at work.
Skin contaminated with oil should be cleaned with mild soap
or suitable hand cleansers at regular intervals, and particularly
at the end of a working day.
Strong soaps and detergents, and abrasive skin cleansers
should be avoided as these themselves can cause skin irritation.
Solvents such as petrol, kerosene, trichloroethane and similar
fluids should not be used for cleaning oil off the skin.

BARRIER AND RESTORATIVE CREAMS


The natural oils in the skin which form a protective barrier are
often removed by the regular washing needed in industry. The
natural protective barrier can be replaced to a certain extent
by using a good barrier cream before work and a good
hydrophilic skin cream containing lanoline or vegetable oils
after finally washing the hands at the end of the work period.

CARE OF THE SKIN


Where any sign of irritation or rash appears on the skin,
medical attention should be sought at the earliest opportunity.

VISCOSITY CLASSIFICATION
The ISO viscosity classification uses mm2/s (cSt) units and relates
to viscosity at 40oC. It consists of a series of 18 viscosity brackets
between 1.98 mm2/s and 1650 mm2/s, each of which is defined
by a number. The numbers indicate to the nearest whole number,
the mid-points of their corresponding brackets. For example, ISO
viscosity grade 32 relates to the viscosity bracket 28.8 to 35.2
mm2/s, the mid point of which is 32.0 mm2/s. This is illustrated in
the table below, which shows the ISO viscosity grade numbers, the
mid-points of each bracket, and the viscosity limits.
This system is now used to classify all shell industrial lubricating oils
where viscosity is an important criterion in the selection of the oil.

VISCOSITY CLASSIFICATIONS GREASE

AGMA SPECIFICATIONS FOR GEAR


LUBRICANTS

The commonly used grease consistency classification is that


established in the USA many years ago by the National Lubricating
Grease Institute (NLGI). This classifies greases solely in terms of
their hardness or softness; no other property or performance level is
taken into consideration.

The American Gear Manufacturers Association (AGMA) have issued


specifications and recommendations for gear lubricants used in
various types of gear application. AGMA Standard 250.04 details
specifications for rust and oxidation inhibited (R and O) and
extreme pressure (EP) lubricants used in enclosed gear drives.

The classification consists of a series of consistency range, each of


which is defined by a number (or numbers) 000 to 6. The consistency
is defined by the distance in tenths of a millimetre, that a standard
cone penetrates a sample of the grease under standard conditions
at 25C. This system is used to classify Shell industrial greases.

The viscosity brackets correspond to those given in ASTM D 2422


Standard Recommended Practice for Viscosity System for Industrial
Fluid Lubricants.
Oils marked comp are compounded with 3 to 10% fatty material.
The AGMA Standard 251.02 details specifications for three types
of open gear lubricants rust and oxidation inhibited (R and O),
extreme pressure (EP) and residual type gear oils. In this case the
viscosity brackets for the higher viscosity grades are measured at
100C.

ENGINE OIL LUBRICANT CLASSIFICATIONS


SAE J300 JANUARY 2009 (ENGINE OILS)
The most widely used system for engine oil viscosity classification is
that established by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) in the
USA.
In this system two series of viscosity grades are defined those
containing the letter W and those without the letter W.
Grades with the letter W are intended for use at lower temperatures
and are based on a maximum low temperature viscosity and a
maximum borderline pumping temperature, as well as a minimum
viscosity at 100C. The low temperature viscosity is measured by
means of a multi-temperature version of ASTM D2602 Method of
Test for apparent Viscosity of Motor Oils at Low temperature using the
Cold Cranking Simulator.

Viscosities measured by this method have been found to correlate


with engine speeds developed during low temperature cranking.
Borderline pumping temperature is measured according to ASTM
D3829 Standard Method for Predicting the Borderline Pumping
Temperature of Engine Oil. This provides a measure of an oils ability
to flow to the engine oil pump inlet and provide adequate engine oil
pressure during the initial stages of operation.
Oils without the letter W, intended for use at higher temperatures,
are based on the viscosity at 100C only. These are measured by
ASTM D445 Method of Test for Kinematic Viscosity of temperature
and Opaque Liquids.
A Multi-grade oil is one whose low temperature viscosity and
borderline temperature satisfy the requirements of one of the W
grades and whose viscosity at 100C is within the stipulated range
of one-W-grades.

The classification is based on the lubricant viscosity measured at

API SERVICE CLASSIFICATIONS


(ENGINE CRANKCASE OILS)
The American Petroleum Institute (API) Engine Service Classification
was developed as a result of a co-operative effort in the USA
between the API, the American Society for Testing and Materials
(ASTM) and the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE). The tripartite
was developed to form a means of communication between the
engine manufacturers and lubricants suppliers.
The system defines classes of service for both petrol and diesel
engine applications as well as stipulating the accepted engine
laboratory tests.
The letter S (Service Station Classification) is designated for
spark ignition engines (petrol engines) in passenger cars and
light commercial vehicles. For compression ignition engines
(diesel engines), the letter C (Commercial Classifications) has
been designated. The following is a brief summary of the API
classifications.

API BASE OIL DEFINITIONS


Group I base stocks contain less than 90% saturates and/or greater
than 0.03% sulphur and have viscosity index greater than or equal
to 80 and less than 120.
Group II base stocks contain greater than or equal to 90% saturates
and less than or equal to 0.03% sulphur and have viscosity index
greater than or equal to 80 and less than 120.
Group III base stocks contain greater than or equal to 90% saturates
and less than or equal to 0.03% sulphur and have viscosity index
greater than or equal to 120.
Group IV base stocks are polyalphaolefins (PAO).
Group V base stocks include all other base stocks not included in
Group I, II, III or IV.

Introduced in 2006. For high-speed, four-stroke engines designed to meet 2007 model year on-highway
exhaust emission standards. CJ-4 oils are compounded for use in all applications with diesel fuels ranging
in sulfur content up to 500ppm (0.05% by weight). However, use of these oils with greater than 15ppm
(0.0015% by weight) sulfur fuel may impact exhaust aftertreatment system durability and/or oil drain
interval. CJ-4 oils are effective at sustaining emission control system durability where particulate filters and
other advanced aftertreatment systems are used. Optimum protection is provided for control of catalyst
poisoning, particulate filter blocking, engine wear, piston deposits, low and high-temperature stability, soot
handling properties, oxidative thickening, foaming, and viscosity loss due to shear. API CJ-4 oils exceed the
performance criteria of API CI-4 with CI-4 PLUS, CI-4, CH-4, CG-4 and CF-4 and cn effectively lubricate
engines calling for those API Service Categories. When using CJ-4 oil with higher than 15ppm sulfur fuel,
consult the engine manufacturer for service interval.
Introduced in 2002. For high-speed, four-stoke engines designed to meet 2004 exhaust emission
standards implemented in 2002. CI-4 oils are formulated to sustain engine durability where exhaust
gas recirculation (EGR) is used and are intended for use with diesel fuels ranging in sulphur content up
to 0.5% weight. Can be used in place of CD, CE, CF-4, CG-4 and CH-4 oils. Some CI-4 oils may also
qualify for the CI-4 PLUS designation.
Introduced in 1998. For high-speed, four-stroke engines designed to meet 1998 exhaust emission
standards. CH-4 oils are specifically compounded for use with diesel fuels ranging in sulphur context up
to 0.5% weight. Can be used in place of CD, CE, CF-4 and CG-4 oils.
Introduced in 1995. For severe duty, high speed, four-stroke engines using fuel with less than 0.5%
weight sulphur. CG-4 oils are required for engines meeting 1994 emission standards. Can be used in

API SERVICE CLASSIFICATIONS
The most important internationally accepted system defining
automotive gear oil performance characteristics is laid down by the
American Petroleum Institute (API).
API GL-1
Designates the type of service characteristics of automotive
spiral-bevel and worm gear axles and some manually operated
transmissions operating under such mild conditions of low unit
pressures and sliding velocities that a non-additive mineral oil
can be used satisfactorily. Oxidation and rust inhibitors, anti-foam
additives and pour point depressants may be utilised to improve the
characteristics of lubricant for this service. Does not contain friction
modifiers and extreme-pressure agents.
API GL-2 (OBSOLETE)
Designates the type of service characteristics of automotivetype worm gear axles operating under such conditions of load,
temperature and sliding velocities that lubricants satisfying API
GL-1 service will not suffice. Products suited for this type of service
contain anti-wear or very mild extreme pressure agents that provide
protection for worm gears.

LUBRICANT SERVICE CLASSIFICATIONS AND SPECIFICATIONS

ILSAC STANDARD FOR PASSENGER CAR ENGINE OILS

API GL-3 (OBSOLETE)


Designates the type of service characteristics of manual
transmissions and spiral-bevel axles operating under moderately
sever conditions of speed and load. These service conditions
require a lubricant having load carrying capacity greater than that
which will satisfy API GL-1 service, but below the requirements of
lubricants satisfying API GL-4 service. Lubricants designated for
this service typically contain additives that are active at the tooth
surface at the temperatures resulting from high-speed or load.
API GL-4 (OBSOLETE)
Designates the type of service characteristics of gears in manual
transmissions operating under sever conditions of sliding speed,
particularly spiral bevel and hypoid gears in moderate service, in
passenger cars and other automotive-type equipment operated
under high speed/low torque and low speed/high torque
conditions.
API GL-5
Designates the type of service characteristics of gears particularly
hypoid, in passenger cars and other automotive equipment
operated under high-speed/shock load, high-speed/low-torque,
and low-speed/high-torque conditions. Equivalent to MIL-L2105D, this category is mainly applicable to axles but may also
be used for certain manual transmissions.

Abrasion
In gears, a type of wear caused when hard particles are trapped
between gear teeth.

Biodegradability
The capacity of a substance to be broken down by the biological
action of living organisms.

Absolute Viscosity
A term used interchangeably with viscosity to distinguish it from
kinematic viscosity of commercial viscosity. It is occasionally referred
to as dynamic viscosity.

Bleeding
The tendency of a liquid component to separate from a solid or
semi-solid mixture such as an oil from a grease. Some bleeding is
desirable, since it provides continuous oil lubrication to bearings.

ACEA

Automotive Manufacturers Association).

Bore Polishing
Excessive smoothing out of the surface finish of the cylinder bore in
an engine to a mirror-like appearance, resulting in depreciation of
ring sealing performance. Bore polishing often leads to an increase
in oil consumption and wear and to a decrease in engine efficiency.

Additive
A chemical substance which, when blended with a petroleum
product, has the effect of improving one or more of its properties or
performance characteristics.
AGMA
American Gear Manufacturers Association, an organisation serving
the gear industry.
Air Release
