The AeroShell Grease Range
AeroShell Grease details and specifications
Shell Aviation can offer a range of aviation greases designed to fill almost every lubrication need of the aviation community. There follows very brief descriptions of the major products in the AeroShell Grease range. Other, specialist greases can be made available; please check with your local AeroShell supplier.
*AeroShell Grease 5
Wheel Bearing and Engine Accessory Grease
Microgel thickened, mineral oil base
Combines high load-carrying ability with excellent resistance to water and high temperatures. It inhibited against corrosion and oxidation, and has a useful temperature range of -23°C to + 177°C. Used primarily in aircraft wheel bearings and engine accessories operating at high speeds and relatively high temperatures.
*Remain available in the Americas only. In all other regions AeroShell Grease 22 replaces AeroShell Grease 5
AeroShell Grease 6
General Purpose Airframe Grease
Microgel thickened, mineral oil base
Inhibited against corrosion and oxidation, it features outstanding low temperature torque properties and resistance to water. Useful temperature range of -40°C to +121°C. Used primarily in plain and anti-friction bearings on general aviation aircraft.
AeroShell Grease 7
Advanced Multipurpose Airframe Grease
Microgel thickened, synthetic diester oil base
Corrosion inhibited and fortified to resist oxidation, it combines excellent load-carrying capacity with a useful temperature range of -73°C to + 149°C. Recommended for highly loaded gears and actuator screw mechanisms, as well as for instrument and general airframe lubrication.
AeroShell Grease 14
Leading Multipurpose Helicopter Grease
Calcium soap thickened, mineral oil base
Inhibited against corrosion and oxidation, it is compounded with special anti-rust additives, and gives outstanding protection against fretting and moisture corrosion. Useful temperature range is -54°C to +93°C. Approved by all leading helicopter manufacturers. Recommended for most helicopter main and tail rotor bearings; widely used as a general purpose helicopter grease
AeroShell Grease 22
Versatile Multipurpose Grease
Microgel thickened, synthetic hydrocarbon oil base
Corrosion inhibited and fortified against oxidation, it has excellent anti-wear properties, load-carrying capacity and water resistance, plus a wide useful temperature range of -65°C to +204°C. Recommended for aircraft wheel bearings, engine accessories and airframe lubrication, and for anti-friction bearings operating at high speeds and at high or low temperatures.
AeroShell Grease 33
Universal Airframe Grease
Lithium complex thickened, synthetic hydrocarbon/ester oil base
Developed with the purpose of satisfying almost all airframe lubrication requirements with a single grease. Its enhanced corrosion resistance and load-carrying capacity reduces wear and tear and can lead to extension of re-greasing intervals and reduction in maintenance costs. Replacing several greases with a single grease avoids the risk of misapplication and also reduces stock inventory, again providing cost savings. Useful temperature range is -73°C to +121°C.
AeroShell Grease 64
An Extreme pressure Airframe Grease
AeroShell Grease 64 (formerly AeroShell 33MS) is an EP airframe grease based on the proven lithium thickener technology of AeroShell Grease 33. It can help to extend component life through its exceptional load-carrying and EP properties from fortification using 5% molybdenum disulphide and its excellent wear and corrosion protection. It also helps to reduce the risk of product misapplication by being fully compatible with AeroShell Grease 33. Together, these greases are perfect partners, thereby helping to reduce costs by protecting over 98% of the grease application points on a typical airliner. AeroShell Grease 64 is fully approved to MIL-G-21164D.
