AeroShell Turbine Engine Oil 560 Features and Benefits

ASTO 560 is developed based on a deep understanding of commercial aviation requirements. The result is a versatile lubricating oil proven to deliver cleaner engines, more reliable operational performance and longer maintenance cycles.

Features Key Benefits
Reduced coke formation Coke formation and shedding can be disruptive to airline operations. Reduced coke deposits can lower maintenance costs and increase on-wing life.
Fully compatible with other approved oils No engine problems such as coke shedding and oil filters blocking is experienced when changing from one approved oil to AeroShell Turbine Engine Oil 560, in accordance with the engine manufacturer recommendations.
No adverse effect on elastomer seals ASTO 560 has good elastomer compatibility which reduces the possibility of oil leaks that could lead to expensive engine overhauls or even an in-flight engine shutdown.
Good oxidative and thermal stability The use of ASTO 560 reduces the occurrence of oxidative and thermal degradation of the oil at high operating temperatures, which could result in high overhaul and maintenance costs due to:
1. An increase in oil viscosity, which may result in the need for oil change;
2. An increase in acidity, which could lead to the corrosion of gears and bearings; and
3. Sludge formation in the oil system, causing the blockage of oil jets and filters.

ASTO 560 provides you the confidence you need to operate successfully in an increasingly challenging business environment. Reliable and versatile, ASTO 560 meets or exceeds the most exacting requirements of turbine oil technology standards as outlined in SAE AS 5780A.
