Performance, Features & Benefits
·Improved engine operation and reliability
Shell Melina S effectively neutralises the highly corrosive combustion acids which can contaminate the main system when cylinder oil drains leak past piston rod glands.
Good resistance to corrosion results in protection of metal surfaces from corrosion
Good detergency keeps crankcases and under piston spaces clean and optimise efficiency
Good air release & antifoam properties mean that air is released from the oil without foaming
·Lower Maintenance Costs
Good Oxidation stability combats thermal degradation of the oil and extends its useful life
Good water shedding properties mean that water can be easily removed by centrifuge
Extreme pressure properties make the oil suitable many
gear oil applications
Shell Melina S Oil is approved by all major low speed diesel engine manufacturers
·Health and Safety
Shell Melina S 30 is unlikely to present any significant health or safety hazard when properly used in the recommended application and good standards of personal hygiene are maintained.

Shell RLA and Shell RLA OPICA engine condition monitoring services are ideal for users of Shell Melina S. Use of these
services enable the ship operator to monitor the condition of the oil and equipment, and enable remedial action to be taken
when necessary. This helps to avoid breakdowns, costly downtime and all the associated inconvenience. To fully benefit
from this service, samples should be taken at regular intervals of approximately 750 hours.
