Shell Alvania Grease R3: A Multipurpose Grease for Industrial Applications
Shell Alvania Grease R3 is a general purpose industrial grease based on a new lithium hydroxystearate soap thickener fortified with anti-oxidant, anti-wear and anti-rust additives. It is suitable for a wide range of operating conditions and temperatures, and offers very significant advantages over conventional lithium greases at high temperature or in the presence of water.
Some of the main applications and benefits of Shell Alvania Grease R3 are:
It can be used for rolling element and plain grease lubricated bearings, electric motor bearings, sealed-for-life bearings and water pump bearings.
It has a reliable high temperature performance up to +130ÂC, resulting in longer bearing life.
It has good oxidation and mechanical stability, resisting the formation of deposits caused by oxidation at high operating temperatures. It also does not leak even in repeated shock-loaded bearings.
It has good corrosion resistance characteristics, providing effective protection in hostile environments.
It has a long storage life and does not alter in consistency during prolonged storage.

For more information on Shell Alvania Grease R3, please refer to the product data sheet[^1^] or contact your local Shell representative.Shell Alvania Grease R3 is part of the Shell Alvania Greases RL series, which also includes Shell Alvania Grease RL1 and Shell Alvania Grease RL2. These greases have different consistencies and are designed for different applications and operating conditions. Shell Alvania Grease RL1 is a soft consistency grease suitable for moderate bearing conditions and low temperature applications. Shell Alvania Grease RL2 is a medium consistency grease ideal for centralised lubrication systems operating at normal temperatures. Shell Alvania Grease RL3 is a medium/hard consistency grease recommended for electric motor bearings.

Shell Alvania Grease R3 should be stored in a cool, dry and well-ventilated area away from direct sunlight and sources of heat or ignition. It should be kept in the original containers and tightly closed when not in use. It should not be mixed with other greases or lubricants as this may affect its performance and properties. It should also be protected from contamination by dust, dirt, water or other substances.
The re-greasing intervals for Shell Alvania Grease R3 depend on various factors such as the type and size of the bearing, the operating speed and temperature, the load and vibration, the environmental conditions and the previous lubricant used. As a general rule, the re-greasing intervals should be reviewed for bearings operating near their maximum recommended temperatures.
