Lubricants for marine environments
Castlehill Trading 467 cc offers a vast range of Shell Marine lubricants to help optimise marine operations such as engine oils, hydraulic and gear system fluids, as well as greases.
Our range includes the Shell Alexia, which is Shell’s two-stroke diesel cylinder oil designed to help you meet the IMO 2020 global fuel sulphur cap. The range includes the Alexia 25, Alexia 40, Alexia 70 and Alexia 100.
We also offer the Shell Gadinia S3, which is designed to help prevent liner lacquering and therefore reduce oil consumption in modern engines and can also help reduce operational complexity. Approved for a wide range of non-engine shipboard applications such as reduction gears, it provides a single lubricant solution for smaller vessels.
In many cases, pressure to reduce operating costs is coinciding with increasing demands on engine oils. Shell Argina oils are designed to deliver high performance that can help to reduce costs, increase reliability and, ultimately, give you greater peace of mind.
Oil condition monitoring services
Shell Rapid Lubricants Analysis (RLA) is an oil condition monitoring service that helps you to keep your vessels running smoothly by identifying potential oil or equipment failures before they become critical.
Lubricant analysis will help your business to save money and time on maintenance caused by equipment failures. It is an early warning system that aims to reassure you that your equipment and lubricants are in optimum working order.
