AeroShell Turbine Oil 560 Synthetic Turbine Engine Oil

When we say "low coking," we don't mean you should cut down on all that soda you've been drinking. After all, that's none of our business. For aviators, low coking refers to a lubricant's stability and amount of oil residue in high temperatures. AeroShell Turbine Oil 560 is a low coking 5 centistoke synthetic hindered ester lubricant. What this means is that it minimizes deposits that can result in extreme high temperatures and improves the engine's performance. Superior to mineral oil, AeroShell 560 dissolves varnish and sludge.

AeroShell turbine oil 560 meets U.S. military standard MIL-PRF-23699-F, making it ideal for today's machinery. It's more than just conforming to strict military regulations - it's about using the best product for your aircraft. AeroShell 560 also outperforms other DERD 2499 or MIL-L-23699 oils when it comes to standard load-carrying tests, demonstrating an 8 percent improvement. This is a high-performance engine oil that you can count on.

See the AeroShell Turbine Oil 560 MSDS for important safety information.

Applications
Changes which have taken place over the last twenty years in engine performance (in terms of improved fuel consumption, higher operating temperatures and pressures) and maintenance practices have resulted in increased severity in lubricant operating conditions.

AeroShell Turbine Oil 560 was developed to withstand the hostile environments of today's high powered, high compression engines in which the older generation of oils can be stressed up to and beyond their thermal limits, as evidenced by oil coking in the high temperature bearing areas.

By overcoming the problems associated with using old technology oils in new technology engines, AeroShell Turbine Oil 560:

  • maintains a cleaner engine
  • provides improved load carrying capacity
  • reduces maintenance costs
  • prolongs bearing life

in both new and existing engines.

For military authorities to take advantage of this better performance in military engines, the specification MIL-PRF-23699 was re-written to include a "High Thermal Stability" (HTS) grade as well as the Standard (STD) and Corrosion Inhibited (C/I) grades. AeroShell Turbine Oil 560 is fully approved as an HTS oil.

With effect from January 1st 2002, AeroShell Turbine Oil 560 has been manufactured with an improved formulation to further enhance its anti-coking performance.

AeroShell Turbine Oil 560 contains a synthetic ester oil and should not be used in contact with incompatible seal materials and it also affects some paints and plastics. Refer to the General Notes at the front of this section for further information.
