Improved wear resistance
With over 18 million kilometers of documented on-road performance, Shell Rimula R3 X has demonstrated:
In the lab: up to 40% lower cross-head wear in the industry standard Cummins M-11 HST test (see chart).
On the road: up to 35% lower iron wear, measured in used oil samples from heavy-duty haulage operations in Caterpillar engines.
Exceptional deposit control
To ensure efficient operation and long engine life, it is essential that your engine is clean inside. Shell Rimula R3 X has been shown to keep engines cleaner than previous generation oils.
Increased heat resistance
Hard-working engines generate lots of heat. Shell Rimula R3 X has been developed to resist breakdown by heat, helping to ensure continued protection under heavy-duty service. The oil exceeds the requirements of key industry high temperature oxidation tests* by up to 40%, providing a rugged safety margin for all but the most severe operations.
*including ASTM Sequence III and CEC PDSC test procedures
