Introducing AeroShell Turbine Engine Oil 560
Similar to aircraft engines, aeroderivative gas turbines (ADGT) are fast-starting, compact and reliable. This makes them ideal for meeting surges in power demand, providing emergency power for critical facilities such as hospitals, and use in remote areas and offshore applications.
ADGTs operate at high temperatures. Oils that cannot cope with this heat can break down, which results in increased acidity and viscosity before the next oil-drain interval. This can lead to high maintenance costs and unscheduled replenishment of oil.
ADGTs require specialist aero-engine oils. AeroShell Turbine Oil 560 are MIL-PRF-23699 approved High Thermal Stability (HTS) oils that provide added thermal protection and low coking propensity, along with optimum elastomer seal compatibility.
Case study: AeroShell Turbine Oil 560 avoids frequent equipment maintenance
Excessive coking can cause unplanned shutdowns and heavily coked components take longer to clean, thus impacting planned downtime. Having switched to AeroShell Turbine Oil 560, an operator of General Electric LM6000 series turbines saw that the HTS formulation helped to reduce carbon formation, thereby reducing the frequency and length of equipment maintenance.
YOU CAN ALSO CHOOSE AEROSHELL TURBINE OIL 500 (ASTO 500)
The standard ASTO 500 may help to keep engine components clean, thereby extending bearing life and reducing maintenance costs. It is a 5-cSt, hindered-ester synthetic oil with carefully selected and balanced additives, and has been developed to meet the MIL-PRF-23699 (STD) specification. ASTO 500 has good corrosion and oxidation stability, which can help to protect engines and cut costs.
