Press release date: March 19, 2007
Shell Mysella XL Meets The Demanding Needs Of Today's Generation Of Stationary Gas Engines Houston - Today's new generation of stationary gas engines generally operate at high load and low emissions, placing increased stress on the lubricating oil. Shell Mysella XL extended drain gas engine oil has been specifically formulated to address these lubrication challenges and designed to extend oil life while helping to reduce maintenance costs and increase engine availability. Shell Mysella XL extended drain gas engine oil significantly prolongs oil life relative to our regular drain gas engine oil by resisting oxidation, viscosity increase and the formation of harmful acids. In a field trial, Shell Mysella XL gas engine oil also provided up to a 25% longer oil drain interval, compared to the leading competitor's regular drain gas engine oil. "Maintenance intervals have been increased with the introduction of improved spark plugs, oil filtration and tighter control of the oil consumption rate," says Dennis Woodley, Product Application Specialist for Shell Lubricants. "A high performance oil is required for synchronizing the oil drain interval with the engine maintenance interval. By using a high performance engine oil such as Shell Mysella XL, operators can help to extend maintenance intervals and minimize costs." Shell Mysella XL helps keep pistons free of deposits and helps prolong the life of valves, valve seats and spark plugs. Additionally, Shell Mysella XL is compatible with engines equipped with emission catalytic converters and meets the requirements of Caterpillar and Waukesha regular service. Shell Mysella XL extended drain gas engine oil was specially developed to help meet the needs of maintenance operators who service remote, un-manned engines (e.g., engines associated with oil and gas field operations). Extending the maintenance interval of these engines can help reduce labor, transportation, and service costs. For more information, visit www.shell.com/us/lubricants.
