You need to know your oil will protect your engine under all conditions. No matter how hot, cold, steep, dusty, muddy, or extended your operations. Whether you own one truck or a thousand, late models or classics, whatever your maintenance routines and procedures, Shell Rotella® heavy duty engine oils can deliver the protection you demand.
From reliable products using well-proven formulation chemistry, to unique and exclusive technologies for the latest low-emissions, severe-duty engines, we can offer the right performance and protection. Built around a deep nowledge of the operation and lubrication needs of heavy duty engines, our scientists and engineers have developed products built on technology that adapts chemically and physically to the changing conditions within the engine, to help keep it running.
Shell Rotella® T6 Full Synthetic oil features an advanced multi-functional, low-ash additive technology in a synthetic base oil designed to provide highly responsive protection that continuously adapts to your driving conditions.
Use of selected low-viscosity synthetic base oils further energizes the oil’s protective capability that promotes fuel-economy performance with no compromise in durability. Shell Rotella® T6 can contribute in many ways:
Shell Rotella® T6 builds on our commitment to providing innovative solutions to meet the technical and operational needs of your equipment. *Compared with Shell Rotella® T Triple Protection® SAE 15W-40 engine oil.
PROTECTION AGAINST WEAR
Shell Rotella® T6 delivers 34% better wear performance on average compared to the previous API CI-4 PLUS 5W-40 formulation. In seven out of seven industry-standard, diesel-engine wear test measurements, Shell Rotella® T6 outperformed the previous formulation.
Protecting the performance of your exhaust-emissions control systems is not only important for your vehicles to comply with legislative requirements, but also to promote efficient operations. For instance, blocked diesel particulate filters (DPF) can actually increase fuel consumption. Shell Rotella® T6 is formulated with reduced levels of ash, phosphorous and sulfur to help maintain the efficiency of the latest vehicle-emissions technologies. Meeting the ash, phosphorous and sulfur requirements of API CJ-4, Shell Rotella® T6 has been tested and proven to protect your vehicle.
IMPROVED HIGH/LOW-TEMPERATURE PROTECTION
Shell Rotella® T6 provides extra protection against breakdown by heat and offers up to 70% better oxidation resistance, compared to conventional Shell Rotella® T3 15W-40 API CJ-4 oil. Shell Rotella® T6 5W-40 provides excellent low-temperature flow, even at -30ºF.
At lower temperatures, using Shell Rotella® T6 5W-40 can help your engine start more easily than using a 15W-40 viscosity- grade product. Shell Rotella® T6 5W-40 can help protect the durability of the starter and battery in harsh winter climates.
UNSURPASSED SHEAR STABILITY
Shell Rotella® T6 5W-40 provides unsurpassed protection against shear-stability degradation, compared to the leading competitive API CJ-4 5W-40 products. An extremely shear-stable product helps maintain consistent viscosity and oil pressure in the engine.
YOUR PROTECTION - OUR EXPERIENCE
Shell Rotella® T6 has special molecules that resist compression to keep moving parts separated, reducing wear. The antiwear booster provides extra protection against wear in highly stressed areas of the engine.
PROTECTION AGAINST SOOT
Shell Rotella® T6 helps control the impact of soot on your engine through increased levels of high-performance ashless chemistry that keeps soot particles apart — up to 36% improvement in soot control at typical engine-oil-soot levels.* This helps keep the oil free flowing for good startup and continued energy efficiency, and helps prevent sludge, deposits and wear. *Compared to Shell Rotella® T Triple Protection® 15W-40 at typical end-of-drain soot levels, based on MACK T-11 soot-test analysis.
Shell Rotella® T Triple Protection oils provide triple action to help control wear, deposits and emissions to continuously adapt to the needs of your engine for protection in on-and-off highway applications. It meets or exceeds API CJ-4 requirements, and is designed to provide extra performance. Shell Rotella® T Triple Protection® performs well in both older and new engines.
TRIPLE PROTECTION® TECHNOLOGY
Triple Protection® technology builds on the traditional strengths of wear protection and engine cleanliness in Shell Rotella® T, but it also protects diesel particulate filters (DPFs) against buildup of harmful deposits. And it provides outstanding viscosity control with exceptional product durability. This technology has been proven in over 50 million miles of durability testing.
ENERGIZED PROTECTION™ AGAINST WEAR
Proven in the lab: Shell Rotella® T Triple Protection® oils provide on average 50%* lower wear in industry-recognized engine tests. In seven out of seven tests designed to measure wear in six key areas of the engine, there was significantly improved wear protection (see chart). Maximum wear merits demonstrated in Cummins ISM engine test(1400 out of 1400). *Range of 27% - 88%
Proven on the road: Just as important as any lab test, Shell Rotella® T Triple Protection® has proven itself where our customers say it matters most – on the road. In 50 million miles of on-highway and off-road testing with some of our leading fleet customers, this formulation has demonstrated significantly improved wear protection. There was significantly lower wear on the road: Up to 38% less iron wear than Shell Rotella® T CI-4 PLUS SAE 15W-40 and up to 22% less iron wear than Shell Rotella® T3 SAE 15W-40 CJ-4.
ENERGIZED PROTECTION™ AGAINST WEAR
The performance benefits of the unique combination of dispersants and detergents, boosted by the use of the dualfunction additive component, are seen in enhanced engine cleanliness and viscosity control compared to previous generation oils (API CI-4 PLUS).
Deposit and sludge control: Our formula contains more dispersant molecules to control sludge and more antioxidant molecules to control deposits, as demonstrated in the laboratory and in the field.
Piston cleanliness: Our Triple Protection® technology features a unique, exclusive detergent system, specifically designed to control piston deposits in the hotter environments of latemodel engines, as well as provide exceptional piston cleanliness in older engines.
Improved cleanliness: In the Caterpillar 1R engine test, Shell Rotella® T Triple Protection® shows clear visible improvements compared to previous-generation oils.
ENERGIZED 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.
Shell Rotella® T1 is an easy-flow monograde providing quality lubrication and consistent performance with well-proven performance additives to fight engine corrosion and wear.
