The Shipcare Product Range


Product Detail
Boiler Treatments We recognise that marine boilers require the highest standards of safety and maintenance. Shell Shipcare’s comprehensive range of treatments helps you maintain the standards you need to keep your ships working optimally.
Boiler Water Alkalinity Concentrated alkaline liquid for use in low-pressure and high-pressure boilers to prevent corrosion and control deposits.
Boiler Water Oxygen Oxygen scavenger used in boilers to remove oxygen and protect against oxygen corrosion.
Boiler Water Condensate Volatile amine-based product for medium-pressure and high-pressure boilers that readily dissolves in water to effectively neutralise acids in the system, helping to prevent corrosion.
Boiler Water Hardness Phosphate-based product that reduces calcium scale formation in boilers at all service pressures.
Boiler Water Combo All-in-one concentrated liquid which helps prevent corrosion and manage scale formation. Also contains an oxygen scavenger component to remove oxygen in the system.
Boiler Water Oil Traces Specially formulated dispersant which helps prevent solids such as scale from adhering to internal boiler surfaces, and keeps sludge deposits in suspension.
Main Engine Cooling Water Treatments Properly treated water is essential for effective cooling and to prevent corrosion.
Cooling Water Treatment Protective film-forming corrosion inhibitor that protects against cavitation, erosion, corrosion, scale deposits and electrolysis.
Evaporator Treatments Optimum evaporator performance depends on minimising scale formation.
Evaporator Treatment Polymer-based liquid additive containing polyacrylate, dispersants and defoaming agents designed to prevent the build-up of carbonate and sulphate scale deposit.

Fuel Treatments

Product Detail
Fuel Lubricity Ester chemistry lubricity improver additive designed to improve distillate fuel lubricity and reduce wear in parts such as fuel injector pumps.
Fuel Conditioner Novel dispersant system designed to improve the asphaltene management of marine fuels. It helps prevent asphaltene agglomeration and build-up in marine fuel storage, transfer lines, purifiers and filters. Overall, it helps enhance the fuel’s stability and compatibility profile.
Fuel Cold Flow Improver Designed to improve the cold flow properties of fuel at lower temperatures, including the Cold Filter Plugging Point and Pour Point.

General Cleaners

Product Detail
Air Cooler Cleaner Heavy-duty cleaner to clear air coolers on diesel engines and turbochargers.
Hydrochloric Descaler (HCL) Powerful, acid-based cleaner that removes rust, scale and corrosion by-products from ferrous metals and also contains inhibitors that protect the base metal.
Sulfamic Acid Powder Inhibited, organic acid-based product to remove scale and deposits in water pipes, heat exchangers, radiators, condensers, evaporators and cooling water systems.
Carbon Remover All-in-one product that combines degreasing, decarbonising and paint stripping into a single operation. A powerful solvent that penetrates and emulsifies away stubborn grease, oil, stains and soil.
Purifier Disc Cleaner Highly concentrated liquid containing acids, emulsifier and surfactants that easily penetrates oxide deposits and oily films on metal surfaces – while offering protection during and after treatment.
Multipurpose Cleaner Non-acidic, non-caustic, biodegradable cleaner suitable for use on most surfaces commonly used for galley, accommodation, engine room, cargo and tank cleaning. Provides rapid penetration to remove light oil and dirt.
Solvent Degreaser Concentrated emulsifying cleaner-degreaser that contains a solvent carrier and surfactants to remove grease, oil, dirt, carbon and other soil.
Rust Stain Remover Mild acid-based cleaner containing acids as well as wetting and penetrating agents. Easily removes oxides, nitrites, amides, amines, chlorides and other salts, neutral and alkaline contaminants, as well as lime deposits.
Filter Cleaner Heavy-duty solvent cleaner designed to remove carbonised oils, grease and dirt from fuel and lubricating oil filters, oil coolers and oil pre-heaters.
Electric Motor Cleaner Designed for cleaning applications where water wetting is undesirable or hazardous. The powerful penetrating action cleans away unwanted oils, grease, dirt, wax and carbon particles from electric components, metal parts, generators and cables.


Product Detail
Oil Spill Dispersant (Water-based) Dispersants are low-toxicity emulsifiers for dispersing oil spills at sea and hard surfaces on land. These are extra-strong emulsifying agents and solvent carriers that break up tough spills.
