Shell Alexia S6 is a cylinder lubricant designed for use in two-stroke low speed diesel engines running under conditions of extreme oil stress.
Shell Alexia S6 is a cylinder lubricant designed for use in two-stroke low speed diesel engines running under conditions of extreme oil stress. It provides additional protection in engines that require a very high performing product and is suitable for use with engines burning residual fuel with Sulphur levels >1.0%. It has been engineered to offer excellent performance for the new, more demanding engines, under challenging operational conditions such “slow” and “flexible” steaming regimes and high fuel Sulphur levels.
Shell Alexia S6 utilises Shell’s unique triple action technology to give advanced protection for engines experiencing cold corrosion, such as Tier II tuned engines and those retrofitted with turbocharger cut-out, where additional support from the lubricant is required. It has been especially formulated to deal with all aspects of Oil Stress.
Shell Alexia S6 has been approved for use in:
MAN B&W two-stroke engine designs (provided that the recommendations in engine type specific guidelines are followed).
Shell Alexia S6 continues in validation trials with Wärtsilä.
