Some of our products include Shell Argina, specifically formulated for four-stroke diesel engines, to keep piston under crowns clean, maintaining cooling performance and preventing hot corrosion. For gas engines, Shell Mysella provides superior deposit control, even in engines with high piston temperatures. This maintains excellent ring belt cleanliness and cylinder liner protection. Shell Alexia S4 is acylinder oil for use in all 2-stroke low-speed diesel engines burning low-sulphur heavy fuel oil.
