|Shell Strombus MP
Emulsifiable stern tube oil
|Shell Strombus MP is designed
specifically for oil-filled stern tubes,
particularly in the event of leakage.
It is mainly used for the lubrication of
stern tube bearings and protection of
tail shafts in systems incorporating lip
seal stern tube glands, but also some
The vast majority of ships today are fitted with oil lubricated stern tubes. The stern tube bearings and the tail shaft are required to operate reliably, often in extreme conditions due to vibration, water ingress, flexing of the vessel’s structure, movement of the vessel in heavy seas and with variations of speed and temperature.
Shell Strombus MP is specifically designed to be compatible with Shell Strombus T and with diesel engine oils used for stern tube lubrication. It is also suitable for the lubrication of the fin shafts of certain retractable stabilisers.
