PROTECTIVE POWER

Excellent wear protection that promotes engine durability through:

  • Low ash content, minimizing formation of deposits and helping to keep intake ports clean
  • Outstanding oxidation resistance to help maximize service life
  • Excellent rust and corrosion protection for critical engine parts
  • Optimized dispersant content to help prevent engine sludge and varnish deposits

APPLICATION

Shell Rotella® T1 oils are suitable for use in many turbo- and non-turbocharged light/medium-duty diesel-powered trucks and transport operations, including city operations and long-distance service.

Shell Rotella® T1 can provide dependable lubrication for small-to-medium-powered agricultural equipment, such as tractors. Also suitable for many low/medium-powered stationary applictions such as diesel-powered water pumps, generators, etc.

Shell Rotella® T1 is suitable for use in mobile hydraulic and transmission systems, as well as for stop-start conditions in construction, mining, or quarry operations, protecting against bearing wear and deposit formation. Not recommended for high-speed engines.

PROTECTION AGAINST EMISSIONS

Shell Rotella® T Triple Protection® helps control vehicle emissions in two ways: 1) by reducing the rate of lubricant-related DPF blockage compared to API CI-4 PLUS oils, and 2) by virtue of the improved wear and exceptional cleanliness, helping engines maintain efficient combustion. Minimizing DPF blockage also helps maintain fuel economy, thus further helping control exhaust-gas emissions.
