Shell Rotella - Introducing Triple Protection Plus Technology
Title: Introducing Triple Protection Plus technology.
At Shell, we know just how tough the roads can be. Harsh weather and long driving hours can have an impact on your engine’s performance. Today’s heavy-duty diesel engines need exceptional engine oils to keep them running at maximum efficiency.
That’s why Shell scientists have developed Shell Rotella synthetic oils with Triple Protection Plus technology.
This unique formulation combines Synthetic Base Oil Technology and our Adaptive Additive technology to provide outstanding engine protection that helps to lower total cost of ownership.
Let us have a look into the formulation of Triple Protection Plus technology.
Triple Protection Plus technology helps deliver engine protection with reduced viscosity engine oils.
By utilizing reduced viscosity oils, less energy is required to pump the oil around the engine, resulting in increased fuel efficiency, lower operating costs and reduced CO2 emissions. Adaptive Additive technology, on the other hand, adapts physically and chemically when required to provide protection.
This is how Triple Protection Plus technology works. Anti-wear chemistry provides extra protection against friction in high-stress areas, extending your engine’s lifespan.
During the combustion process, acids are produced which can end up in the engine oil. Performance additives neutralize these acids and prevent them from reaching vital engine parts. By preventing metal corrosion, unplanned downtime can be minimized.
Additives target carbon particles to prevent sludge formation which helps extend oil drain intervals.
Detergent molecules prevent build-up of deposits around the piston crown, resulting in a cleaner, more efficient engine and reduced maintenance costs.
Triple Protection Plus technology was designed to provide enhanced engine protection, long oil life, reduced fuel and maintenance costs, all temperature protection, resulting in lower total cost of ownership.
Shell Rotella with Triple Protection Plus technology, the engine oil that works as hard as you.
