Fluids and Preservatives

AeroShell Fluid 41
MIL-PRF-5606H

AeroShell Fluid 41
Super-clean, mineral hydraulic fluid
  • Enhanced system reliability by protecting against system failure through super cleanliness
  • Long component life through its anti-wear, anti-oxidant and corrosion inhibition system and shear stability performance
  • System efficiency through its low-temperature performance and a high viscosity index
Specification and approval
  • MIL-PRF-5606H

AeroShell Fluid LGF
BMS 3-32 TYPE 2

AeroShell Fluid LGF
Extreme-pressure operational hydraulic fluid
  • Based on AeroShell Fluid 41 which already provides strong fluid oxidation stability and anti-wear performance
  • Mineral-based hydraulic fluid
  • The extreme-pressure additive helps to protect components from metal-to-metal wear during landings
  • Particularly suitable for low-temperature operations, thanks to good low-temperature properties

Specification and approval
  • Qualified to Boeing BMS 3-32 Type 2

AeroShell Fluid 31
MIL-PRF-83282D

AeroShell Fluid 31
Super-clean, fire-resistant, synthetic hydrocarbon hydraulic fluid
  • Higher flash point for greatly improved fire resistance compared with mineral hydraulic fluids
  • Helps to prevent hydraulic system failure by being manufactured using super-clean procedures
  • Protection and efficiency through base oil and advanced additives that give good low-temperature performance, thermal stability, oxidation and corrosion resistance, wear protection and anti-foaming properties

Specification and approval
  • MIL-PRF-83282D

AeroShell Calibrating Fluid 2
MIL-PRF-7024F

AeroShell Calibrating Fluid 2
Calibrating fluid for fuel system components
  • Stoddard solvent for use specifically in fuel system calibration by engine and component manufacturers
  • The differences in its specification compared to normal jet fuel enable fuel systems to be calibrated more accurately
  • Designed to ensure that fuel management systems work efficiently

Specification and approval
  • MIL-PRF-7024F Type II

AeroShell Fluid 12
MIL-PRF-6085E

AeroShell Fluid 12
Instrument lubricating oil
  • Low-volatility synthetic ester for lubricating aircraft instruments such as gyros and for gimbal bearings
  • Also used for separately-lubricated high-speed turbines and compressors, air-cycle and electronic equipment, and for general lubrication
  • Low evaporation rate at high and low temperatures
  • Oxidation and corrosion inhibited
  • Good high and low-temperature characteristics

Specification and approval
  • MIL-PRF-6085E

AeroShell Fluid 3
MIL-PRF-7870E

AeroShell Fluid 3
General-purpose mineral lubricating oil
  • Relatively low viscosity mineral oil recommended for general lubricant of aircraft parts
  • Low freezing point and resistance to evaporation, oxidation and corrosion to make it:
    • An excellent lubricant for instruments requiring a light oil with good low temperature characteristics
    • Other applications include hinges, pivot points, shaft joints, linkage pins, bearings, pulleys, cables, camera mechanisms and radio and radar gear

Specification and approval
  • MIL-PRF-7870E

AeroShell Fluid 5MA
MIL-PRF-6086F Medium Grade

AeroShell Fluid 5MA
Medium viscosity, extreme-pressure gearbox oil
  • Lubrication of high-load gears
    • Includes additives providing extreme-pressure and oxidation performance
  • Particularly recommended for the translation units of contra-rotating propellers, radar gearboxes and constant-speed alternator drives
  • Used in helicopter transmissions (gearboxes) requiring a MIL-PRF-6086 oil and suitable for heavily loaded pins, bushes and gear mechanisms. It must not be used in engines

Specification and approval
  • MIL-PRF-6086F Medium Grade

AeroShell Fluid S.8350
OEP-215

AeroShell Fluid S.8350
Extreme-pressure helicopter gearbox oil
  • For use in helicopter rotor gear-drive shafts and pitch-control mechanisms, and wherever high loads and slow speeds require the use of an SAE 90 extreme-pressure gear oil. It must not be used in engines

Specification and approval
  • OEP 215

AeroShell Fluid 61
MIL-PRF-6083G

AeroShell Fluid 61
Preservative, synthetic hydrocarbon hydraulic fluid
  • Based on AeroShell Fluid 31 which is specially designed to provide strong fluid oxidation stability and good hydraulic-system corrosion protection
  • Additional additives that help to improve its corrosion-prevention properties for hydraulic components in storage
  • No need to drain and flush the system when changing to operational fluid AeroShell Fluid 31

Specification and approval
  • MIL-PRF-46170D

AeroShell Fluid 2XN
MIL-C-6529 Type 2

AeroShell Fluid 2XN
Engine preservative concentrate
  • Corrosion prevention concentrate for protecting infrequently used engines
  • Protects internal engine surfaces from the effects of humidity
  • Designed to neutralize the acidic by-products of oil oxidation and combustion
  • Can be used neat for long-term storage, but it is typically mixed with one part AeroShell Fluid 2XN to three parts fresh AeroShell Oil 100 to create an inhibited oil

Specification and approval
