Shell Gadinia S3 40 55AG
Lubricants for medium-speed marine diesel engines running on distillate fuels.
Shell Gadinia S3 40 is a high quality, multifunctional diesel engine lubricant which has been specially designed for the most severe service main propulsion and auxiliary marine trunk piston engines burning distillate, hybrid and biofuels with a Sulphur content up to 1%. The newly formulated Shell Gadinia S3 40 has also been optimized for use in non-engine applications which are typically found on board such as gearboxes, clutches and stern tubes.
Performance, Features & Benefits
- Extended oil life
Shell Gadinia S3 40 offers excellent resistance to oxidation and thermal degradation so it can offer longer oil life, especially in high stress engines under severe operating conditions.
- Engine protection
Shell Gadinia S3 40 can help to extend engine life by reducing deposit formation in the piston ring belt and cylinder liners reducing the risk of ring sticking and breakage. In addition, the new formulation has been designed to minimize lacquer formation resulting in greater control of oil ·consumption and reduced operating costs.
- System efficiency
Shell Gadinia S3 40 has been designed to have greater tolerance to engine overload or poor combustion. It will also offer a greater safety margin to protect highly loaded bearings, in the event of water contamination, due to Shell Gadinia S3 40’s improved water tolerance and separation in separators. Shell Gadinia S3 40 is also approved for use in a number of non-engine applications such as gearboxes, clutches and stern tubes – this can help smaller operators to minimize inventory by removing the requirement to keep multiple specialist lubricants on board.
- Highly rated, medium speed, main propulsion & auxiliary trunk-piston stationary & marine diesel engines.
- Shell Gadinia S3 40 will also perform satisfactorily in smaller high-speed engines typically used in fishing fleets which operate under arduous conditions and have small sump sizes.
- Turbochargers, oil filled stern tubes and variable pitch propellers.
- Deck machinery & other marine applications requiring SAE 40 viscosity oils.
