Shell Rimula R4
Shell Rimula R4 technology is designed to protect modern engines with turbochargers, intercooling and exhaust gas recirculation. From the high-pressure contacts in the valve train to the extreme temperatures of the pistons and rings, Shell Rimula R4 adapts to all the conditions within your engine, and helps you to minimise your maintenance and operating costs by providing a versatile one-oil solution for modern fleets.
A highly stable dual-function additive component provides extra protection against oil thickening within the high soot and contamination levels found in modern low emission engines. This ensures that the oil continues to flow and protect even under heavy-duty operations found in US 2004, Euro 3 and Euro 4 turbocharged engines.
Active technology for better protection
Shell Rimula R4 contains dual-function molecules that work with conventional additives to enhance performance. They do this by helping to capture soot found in high power modern engines, for wear and deposit control.
Unique active technology
The performance benefits of the unique combination of dispersants and detergents boosted by the use of the dual-function additive component are seen in enhanced engine cleanliness and viscosity control compared to previous generation oils (API CH-4/ACEA E5).
Improved Cleanliness: In the ASTM Caterpillar 1R engine test, Shell Rimula R4 technology shows clear visible improvements compared to previous generation oils.
Better flow: the advanced dispersant systems help keep the oil flowing properly, resisting thickening caused by build up of soot.
