AeroShell Turbine Oil 3 is a 3 mm2/s mineral turbine oil blended from mineral base stocks to which an anti-corrosion additive has been added.
AeroShell Turbine Oil 3 was developed for early pure jet engines and is still approved for some versions of these engines plus the Turbomeca Astazou, Artouste, Turmo, Bastan and Marbore engines.
AeroShell Turbine Oil 3 is widely used for inhibiting fuel systems and fuel system components during storage.
AeroShell Turbine Oil 3 is an analogue to the Russian Grade MK-8 and can therefore be used in engines which require the use of MK-8. It is also used as the mineral turbine oil component in the mixture of mineral turbine oil and piston engine oil used in Russian turbo-prop engines.
