Shell Rimula R3 MV GLM Pail

Designed for demanding applications such as those found in construction, mining and quarrying.

Reduced engine deposits

Shell Rimula R3 MV has demonstrated excellent sludge and deposit control. Up to 49% lower than the maximum CI-4 limit allowed for carbon deposits in the top grove of the pistons were measured in the Caterpillar Engines1 at high temperatures.

Resists breakdown by heat

Protection against breakdown by heat means the oil continues to help protect against deposits, even under severe conditions, thus helping to deliver longer engine life. Shell Rimula R3 MV has demonstrated exceptional resistance to breakdown by heat in laboratory tests, with up to 62% lower viscoisty2 than the API CI-4 viscosity limit.

Controling engine wear

In trials with Caterpillar engines, Shell Rimula R3 MV performed well in helping to prevent iron wear and to protect iron-based components and bearing metal.3
