Shell Caprinus

Shell Caprinus HPD 40- Railroad Diesel Engine Oil

Caprinus HPD 40 is a premium grade, heavy-duty, crankcase oil, intended mainly for railroad diesel engines of American origin, particularly those manufactured by General Electric and General Motors Electro-Motive Division (EMD). Although it is fortified by additives providing alkalinity, dispersancy and resistance to oxidation, it does not contain zinc and therefore can be used in EMD engines fitted with silver piston-pin bearings. Caprinus HPD 40, which contains high viscosity index mineral oil, is designed specially for use in highly rated North American railroad engines subjected to the most severe operating conditions, especially where fuel sulphur is high (say around 1%) and where long oil drain intervals are required.

Grade Name SAE Viscosity Grade TBN Perfomance Specifications
Shell Caprinus HPD 40 40 13 API service Class’n – CD
EMD – Worthy of full scale field test (WOFT)
General Electric – Gen 4 Long life “Tentative Approval”
