Many modern jet engines require fit-for-purpose lubricant products that can handle high speeds, temperatures, and related stresses without breaking down or forming deposits. As such, lubricant performance is a significant contributor to extended engine life, longer maintenance cycles, and fewer commercial disruptions.
Since the birth of modern aviation, Shell Aviation has been providing quality fuels,lubricants and associated services to the aviation community. For more than 100 years, Shell has played a crucial role in many landmark events in the aviation industry – including helping Sir Frank Whittle develop the jet engine. Today, Shell Aviation offers a wide range of lubricating oil products, including the latest generation of synthetic oils capable of taking turbine engine performance to new heights.
Proven performance for confident commercial operations
AeroShell Turbine Oil 560 (ASTO 560) is a third generation 5-centistoke synthetic hindered ester lubricating oil, designed to provide commercially viable performance and benefits such as reduced coking and improved wear resistance for modern jet engines. Formulated to cope with demanding operating conditions, ASTO 560 has consistently delivered the right balance of performance and cost efficiency to the global aviation industry over the past 25 years.
