Wear Protection

Superior protection against corrosion for all engine components, due to Shell Gadinia’s unique formulation giving excellent alkalinity retention. Improved control of liner lacquer leads to better control of oil consumption and contributes to lower cost of operation.

Greater safety margin to protect highly loaded bearings, in the event of water contamination, because of Shell Gadinia’s improved water tolerance and separation in separators.

Oil Life

The Shell Gadinia range can help extend the diesel engine life through reduced risk of ring sticking and breakage. In addition, because of Shell Gadinia’s excellent resistance to oxidation and thermal degradation under severe operating conditions, this results in longer oil life, especially in high stress engines.

System Efficiency

Greater tolerance to engine overload or poor combustion due to improved piston cleanliness and reduction of deposits in piston ring belt and cylinder liners.
