AeroShell Grease 33 is a synthetic universal airframe grease composed of a lithium complex thickened synthetic base
oil with corrosion and oxidation inhibitors and load carrying additives.
The useful operating temperature range is –73°C to +121°C.
For many years aircraft operators have been seeking to rationalise the greases used on aircraft and to reduce the
number of different greases in their inventories. Recently Boeing began research on a new, general purpose, corrosioninhibiting grease. The aim was for a non-clay based grease that would provide longer life for components and
mechanisms and possess improved wear and corrosion resistance. This led to the introduction of the new Boeing
Specification BMS 3-33B.
Owing to the wide range of operating temperatures, load and other environmental conditions required for various
aircraft components, several different types of grease with different desirable properties are used during routine
lubrication of aircraft components. Boeing, in developing their BMS 3-33B specification, took account of the properties of the different grease types used on aircraft and wrote a specification for a grease that would provide improved
performance and which could be used in the widest possible range of grease applications.
·AeroShell Grease 33 is approved to BMS 3-33B and offers the improved performance properties required by this
AeroShell Grease 33 can be used for routine lubrication on Boeing aircraft where MIL-PRF-23827C or BMS 3-24 is
specified. AeroShell Grease 33 can also be used in some applications on Boeing aircraft which require use of MIL-G-
21164. Other applications on Boeing aircraft which require use of MIL-G-21164 and other greases are being reviewed
and in due course Boeing will issue details of the full range of applications. For the current status, refer to the latest issue of Boeing Service Letter "BMS 3-33B General Purpose Aircraft Grease".
AeroShell Grease 33 can be used for routine lubrication in applications where MIL-PRF-23827C is specified on aircraft
manufactured by McDonnell Douglas, Airbus, BAe Regional Aircraft, Canadair, Lockheed, Embraer, Fokker and Gulfstream
(except for wheel bearings, applications above 121°C and sliding applications requiring molybdenum disulphide).
Other aircraft manufacturers are evaluating AeroShell Grease 33 with the aim of approving it for use on their aircraft.
Operators should regularly check with these manufacturers for the latest status.
·Use of AeroShell Grease 33 can provide operators with the following benefits:
- Reduced inventories;
- Reduced maintenance labour costs;
- Less chance of product mis-application.
