Shell Rotella T5 Synthetic Blend Technology
printable version THE PROTECTIVE POWER
The combination of synthetic blend base oils and advanced additive system delivers excellent protection, even at low temperatures where the enhanced cold-flow properties help protect your engine.
Shell Rotella® T5 is formulated and designed to energize the oil's performance
and provides fueleconomy
benefits*, improved low-temperature flow
, and delivers an advanced "Low-SAPS" formulation which helps control the blocking or poisoning of exhaust after-treatment devices
* Compared with conventional Shell Rotella® T Triple Protection® 15W-40 engine oil.
Shell Rotella® T5 Synthetic Blend Technology is an innovative
heavy duty engine oil designed to deliver fuel-economy savings, extended-drain capability, enhanced engine cleanliness, and excellent wear protection
Shell Lubricants is one of the first companies to offer synthetic blend
SAE 10W-30 and SAE 10W-40 viscositygrade products that meet some of the most stringent heavy duty engine oil specifications globally, such as API CJ-4, ACEA E9, and Volvo VDS-4. Shell Lubricants is committed to being the technical leader in heavy duty engine-oil-product innovation.
FUEL ECONOMY BENEFITS
Shell Lubricants continues to be a leader in the development of fuel-economy-lubricants. In 2009, we conducted a large-scale trial of medium-duty trucks based on city and highway driving patterns. Shell Rotella® T5 demonstrated fuel-economy savings of up to 1.6% in 2009 on-the-road field testing in medium-duty trucks
. (For 10W-30 viscosity-grade-only, highway cycles, compared to Shell Rotella® Triple Protection® 15W-40.) These fuel-economy savings can help lower operation-and-maintenance costs.
Optimize Oil-Drain Intervals
Shell Rotella® T5 provides protection against acid buildup
that can contribute to corrosive wear, as demonstrated through TAN (Total Acid Number) increase and lead corrosion in several industry-standard engine tests. By controlling TAN increase, Shell Rotella® T5 can help equipment owners optimize oil-drain intervals
At lower temperatures, using Shell Rotella® T5 10W-30 or 10W-40 can help your engine start more easily than using a 15W-40 viscosity-grade product. Shell Rotella® T5 10W-30 or 10W-40 can help protect the durability of the starter and battery during harsh winter climates. (Anti-idling laws in some states force more usage of Auxiliary Power Units and shutting engines off.)
Shell Rotella® T5 provides excellent wear control
, particularly in preventing bore polish in the cylinder liners
. Bore polish in the cylinder liners can result in a loss of fine manufactured honing lines, which can lead to excessive liner wear and an increase in oil consumption. Control of bore polish is measured through the stringent Mercedes OM611LA, OM646LA, OM501LA, and Volvo D-12D engine tests. Shell Rotella® T5 does an excellent job controlling bore polish in these engine tests.
Shell Rotella® T5 provides better low-temperature flow
than conventional SAE 15W-40 oil.
CLEANLINESS /DEPOSIT CONTROL
Shell Rotella® T5 provides exceptional piston cleanliness and sludge control
, exceeding the MB 228.51 requirements in the demanding OM 611LA, OM 501LA and OM 646LA engine tests.
