Shell Lubricants is expanding its portfolio with the introduction of Shell Rotella Extended Life Coolant–Nitrite Free (ELC-NF). The new coolant joins the Shell Rotella coolant portfolio as the companion to Shell Rotella Ultra ELC. Both products are designed to meet requirements of commercial vehicles that are moving to nitrite-free engine antifreeze/coolant formulations to better protect aluminum components.
ELC-NF provides improved protection of aluminum components including modern brazed aluminum heat exchangers and meets many of the newest OEM specifications. The versatile formulation may also be used in fleets that include light-duty trucks. The product is proven for extended-life operation in medium- and heavy-duty diesel, gasoline, LNG, and natural gas vehicles and engines. This coolant offers outstanding heat transfer that is superior to conventional coolants as well as excellent cavitation (pitting) and related damage protection on cylinder liners. It can help extend the life of water pumps, radiators, and other cooling system components. ELC NF offers superior heat transfer compared with conventional coolants and is compatible with other extended-life coolants. Finally, it has no supplemental coolant additives (SCA) or extender use required for the life of the coolant. Unlike other coolants, extended-life coolants are designed to go 600,000 on-highway miles or 12,000 hours in commercial applications (and beyond with proper monitoring) and provide overall reduction in cooling system maintenance. Extended-life coolants also offer complete cooling system component protection by helping to reduce water-pump failures, hard-water-scale deposits, and silicate gel. ELC NF meets industry-required ASTM D3306, D4985, D6210, TMCRP 329, and RP 364 requirements. For more information, access
